LISBON - July 8, 2008
Portugal’s leading video games investor and developer, GAMEINVEST, is bringing hospital drama to multiple platforms this summer with Sarah’s Emergency Room. Currently in development for Nintendo DS™, Wii™, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and PC platforms, Sarah’s Emergency Room is a time management and hospital simulation game where players take on the role of a young nurse, caring for patients in fast-paced hospital environments. GAMEINVEST is currently looking for qualified distribution and publishing partners for Sarah’s Emergency Room on the various platforms.
“Sarah’s Emergency Room revives the time management genre with fun, challenging levels and a frenetic pace with simulation management skills,” said GAMEINVEST founder and CEO Paulo Gomes. “Our commitment to quality and accessibility shines with beautiful graphics and a pick-up-and-play interface.”
Sarah’s Emergency Room casts players as Sarah, a young nurse who has recently graduated from college in California and is struggling to find a job. In a twist of fate, Sarah is hired for a nursing position at a small hospital in Arkansas, where she discovers that managing an emergency room is a bit harder than she expected. At the hospital, she tends to all patients who walk through the door, diagnosing, taking X-rays, filling prescriptions and assisting in the operating room. Play through the game’s narrative to the exciting conclusion - will Sarah’s career as a nurse be a success?
Using a Wii remote, DS stylus, controller or mouse, players will direct the nurse, Sarah, and the patients, rushing between doctors and exam rooms. When working at larger hospitals, players will see multiple on-screen levels, enabling them to manage different floors, moving players with the elevator. The 3D graphics, seven hospitals, and increasing levels of difficult tasks will challenge time management gamers of all ages.
