July 1, 2021 -- Brave Lamb Studio, a member of the Movie Games family, has partnered with the UK's Imperial War Museums on War Hospital, a game set in the realities of World War I.
War Hospital is a society survival game set in 1917, where the player takes on the role of Major Henry Wells, a British field medic who becomes the commander of a field hospital located in France, near the front lines. His job is to manage a medical team, care for the wounded and develop medical technology in the face of limited resources and a deepening conflict. A unique aspect of the game is the triage - the segregation of the wounded based on the patient's prognosis and personal history, highlighting the difficult choices frontline medics had to make.
Imperial War Museums is a British organization that includes five branches dedicated to uncovering the causes, course and consequences of war, from the First World War through to present-day. Its experts will consult on the historical aspect of the game and act as advisors for the game developers. War Hospital is the first ever game to be Brand Licensed by Imperial War Museums.
“As a leading authority on 20th and 21st century conflicts, we will be working closely with the Brave Lamb Studio creative team to enhance the world depicted in the game. We are excited to help add realism to a game that depicts the realities of World War I in a way never seen before," said David Fenton, Head of Retail & Admissions at Imperial War Museums.
“Imperial War Museums is a partner that delivers value in two dimensions. The first is historical accuracy - we are working with the best source of data on World War I, which we will certainly use. The second aspect is reaching out to all members of the history enthusiast community who recognize the Imperial War Museums brand in Europe. In doing so, it should be noted that we are the first game to be Brand Licensed by the IMW. I think this is a special honor for us,” said Michał Dziwniel, producer and board member of Brave Lamb Studio.
War Hospital is heading to PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X platforms.
