The latest game to join Origin’s On the House program, in which Electronic Arts gives away free games, is classic simulation-strategy game Theme Hospital. Bullfrog Productions’ PC game, normally $4.99 on the digital game store, is now free to download.
Theme Hospital is the successor to Bullfrog’s previous business sim, Theme Park. The game tasks players with designing and managing a hospital, and treating patients with odd diseases. Physical and psychological maladies include Spare Ribs (extra rib growth), King Complex (the uncontrollable desire to impersonate Elvis Presley) and Bloaty Head (oversized craniums). Theme Hospital was released in 1997.
To take advantage of the deal, you’ll need an Origin account.
