Electronic Arts is continuing its “On the House” free game promotional program and is now offering the the PC version of Bullfrog’s classic comedy medical sim Theme Hospital free for all Origin members (worth $4.99). It’s not clear for how long the game will be available for free, but the page state that the offer is available for a Limited Time Only. So it’s probably best to claim this free game as soon as possible.
Theme Hospital is a business simulation game developed by the sadly deceased Bullfrog and published by Electronic Arts in 1997. The game is the thematic successor to Bullfrog’s previous business sim, Theme Park, and is regarded as one of the best simulation games of the ’90s. The game tasks players with designing, maintaining and managing a hi-tech hospital with limited resources while curing sick patients of wacky ailments. Like most of Bullfrog’s games, Theme Hospital is permeated by an eccentric sense of humour.
Polished & detailed management sim with extra helpings of crazy.
Hilarious humour will accompany you throughout the entire game, in this strange hospital of yours there is always something weird and funny going on.
Be everything the national health care system shouldn’t be; there is no place for mercy and altruism in this game – you can’t buy yourself a new car with that, can you?
Minimum system requirements:
Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7
1.8 GHz Processor
512MB RAM (1 GB recommended)
3D graphics card compatible with DirectX 7 (compatible with DirectX 9 recommended)
Peripherals: Mouse, keyboard
Free Download Theme Hospital Full Version PC Game
Theme Hospital is normally priced at $4.99 (£3.99) but you can grab the game for free for a limited time period on EA’s Origin store here. If you don’t have an Origin account, just create one, it’s free.
And as with the other On the House freebies, once you claim the game, you can download and play it whenever you want, even when the game goes back to its original price on Origin. If you’re a fan of classic business simulation games, don’t miss out.
Thanks very much to Goodwin & Nickolas for informing me about this promo. And sorry for my late to report it.
