Surgeon Simulator 2013 ARG isn't related to Half-Life 3

Yesterday, word got out about a peculiar clue hidden underneath a statue in Surgeon Simulator 2013. This was part of the update that brought Team Fortress 2's Medic and Heavy to the game and, knowing Valve's history with alternate-reality games and teaming up with external studios, it seemed possible that another mystery was waiting to be cracked.

That last part ended up being true -- "So, we hear there's some puzzle you're trying to figure out..." tweeted developer Bossa Studios -- though it had nothing to do with Valve games, as the company later clarified once this situation started getting out of hand. When the mere hint of Half-Life 3 news is present, the internet comes together to work its magic.

Even if this puzzle ends up being a disappointment, as an outsider, I must say that this has been entertaining to watch. There's speculation that this could still be related to the Steam summer sale; sounds like we'll find out one way or another on Saturday.

There's Korean writing in Surgery Simulator...and has nothing to do with Half-Life. [NeoGAF via PC Gamer]

Still funny: Surgeon Simulator out now for iPad

I laughed three times during this trailer. The patient being beaten in the face with his own heart, the distended eyeballs, and the demented writhing at 43 seconds. If you have a friend or family member with an iPad, buy the...more

Become a dentist in Surgeon Simulator for iPad

I love and hate Surgeon Simulator 2013, but mostly, I love it. Losing is hilarious at first, don't get me wrong. Then that humor begins to fade away as you repeatedly fail to complete the same objective over and over again b...more

Mutilate Team Fortress 2's Heavy in Surgeon Sim 2013

You've got to appreciate Surgeon Simulator 2013, even if it's not something you want to necessarily play. One could argue that, more than anything, it plays you. A fun bit of extra content has found its way to the goofy, cha...more

This Surgeon Simulator cake is super gross

The guys behind Surgeon Simulator 2013 had a special cake made to celebrate the game's success. It's themed after what you do in the game, and well, it's pretty damn gross. So gross that I put it below the fold in case you'r...more

Gone Home coming to Wii U

Gone Home. It spawned the worst debate since, "Is it art?" the dreaded, "Is it a game?" Thankfully it lead to more thoughtful writing, too, outside of that human centipede.  It was previously announced for undisclosed co...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
