It’s really the perfect choice for the more sadistic among us, the more psychologically disturbed, the wannabe surgeons or simply for those who enjoy challenging themselves or even those who don’t want to take a game too seriously. It has wide appeal, and for good reason. Bossa Studios really did a wonder job here. For me, it’s why I love indie."
