No, it's not a game about Geddy Lee diagnosing your stomach pains. Let's just get that out of the way.
I used to work in a hospital. And, yeah, it can be a really hectic, crazy place. When something goes wrong, there's usually only seconds to help out in these very real life-and-death scenarios. Thankfully, in Rush M.D., you're not actually holding someone's life in your hands, but you still need to be able to make split-second decisions in this real-time, cooperative game. It's up on Kickstarter now.
About the game:
You are one of the doctors that were just hired for the brand-new, cutting-edge Medical Center. Alongside your colleagues, you have to cooperate well, to admit, diagnose and treat various patients who need your help.
Combine your strengths and treat efficiently the patients arriving at hospital, but be careful, because mistakes can be of the highest value in Rush MD!
Rush M.D. is an innovative, real-time, co-operative board game that simulates the challenging and high-pressure nature of medical professions. A worker placement mechanism, using hourglasses as workers allows, but also limits, players to perform a multitude of actions. Each player handles 1 Doctor hourglass running around the hospital, admitting patients, providing immediate medical care, performing different kinds of exams as well as performing surgeries. Additionally, there are 4 more Nurse hourglasses, which can be used by all players. Nurses provide medicines to patients, supply all necessary drugs and equipment that you need to carry out all your exams and medical procedures. Any worker placed on an action space may not be used elsewhere before the sand within the hourglass runs out, making each decision important as time is limited.
The campaign's already over 150% funded with 19 days left to go.
