Surgeon Simulator 2013 brings QWOP-style awkwardness to heart surgery

The clumsy control celebrated in games like Bennett Foddy's QWOP and Young Horses' Octodad combines with emergency heart surgery in Surgeon Simulator 2013, an amusing highlight from this weekend's Global Game Jam at the SAE Institute in London.

As Nigel Burke, an "ordinary guy with no outstanding skills" forced to perform a heart transplant, players contend with "revolutionary" one-to-one finger manipulation controls and "realistic surgical tool physics" to complete their task. In a gameplay video uploaded by UK-based Bossa Studios, viewers will see just how incredibly difficult Surgeon Simulator 2013 is.

Surgeon Simulator 2013 was made by a four man team (Tom Jackson, James Broadley, Luke Williams and Jack Good) in less than 48 hours.

The game is available as a free download for Windows, Mac and Linux PC. Surgeon Simulator 2013 is also available to play in a browser through Unity.
