Theme Hospital is CorsixTH
February 2, 2011article on Roller Coaster Tycoon and culminated in my visiting the page on Theme Hospital. In the article, it talks about various attempts to develop an open source game engine based on Theme Hospital using the old game assets. So, I found CorsixTH (which is in Beta), and wouldn't you know, it's just like Theme Hospital! I noticed a couple small bugs and the "Charts" menu isn't fleshed out, but it's just like the game I remember. So, now you have to ask yourself three things:
- Did you love Theme Hospital when it first came out?
- Do you still have the original CD?*
- Are you ready to rock like it's 1997?!?!!1!
* The wiki for CorsixTH says that you can use the demo files, but that it doesn't have all of the files necessary. Remember, you can always check on eBay for deals on used copies, as well.
