Part business sim and part puzzle Big Pharma lets you take control of a pharmaceutical firm who sets out to answer one question: do you cure the world of illness or do you chase after the almighty dollar? Or maybe a bit of both?
Big Pharma is a good reminder to a graphics snob like me that a game doesn’t need to look like Blood Born to be brutally hard. The idea is to run a successful pharmaceutical company while meeting scenario targets by creating and selling medicinal cures to the world. You take raw materials found in nature and alter them to activate the desired effects while avoiding potentially nasty side effects. No one wants an antihistamine that also causes constipation. That’s just switching one problem for another.
