Walnut Creek, Calif. - September 15, 2011

Paging all Doctors! Bitwise Design has officially announced the first major content update to their quirky medical time management game, Hospital Havoc 2. Get ready for a brand new form of currency, dynamic additions to gameplay, additional achievements, and new ways of earning those tasty muffins that you all know and love.

Since day one of the game’s release, all players (even you!) have been earning a third in-game currency: stars! You may have noticed that at the end of each career day or scenario, you are awarded with a Bronze, Silver, Gold, or even Rainbow star. In the past, these stars were only tracked for your own sense of achievement, but from now on they can be spent on exciting new in-game items.

We’ll be offering brand new ways of keeping your beloved patients alive. After the update, you’ll see 4 new machines added to the Quicki-Med catalog, known simply as “healing machines” and purchasable exclusively with the new star currency. After buying a healing machine, you can direct your nurses towards them and towards a patient’s bed, delivering a crucial dose of adrenaline to increase patient health.

The update will also give every Doctor a new catalog item that allows you to convert stars to muffins. It will streamline the once-complicated process of unlocking a new hospital and fix assorted minor bugs, and will add seven deliciously challenging new achievements. We’ve also made Hospital Havoc 2 completely self-contained, which means that you no longer need an Internet connection to play. Instead, all content is included within the download, which makes the levels load five times faster.

Bitwise encourages all you fine medical professionals to hurry to your hospitals and take human lives in your hands with more confidence and prowess than ever, with the help of this exciting new update.
