Wow, amazing game! Definitely, an inspiration for me to develop my own centered on the medical profession. I want to introduce myself - I am a 3rd-year undergraduate pharmacy student who is fascinated by my dream of making games that would teach more about the medical profession. I just want to ask if I could personally share this with my friends and everyone I know of, your game, so they could know about your work? I am honestly really interested in your creation and would highly want to recommend it to others, as long as your permission first. (Also, is it okay if I may borrow some of the elements in your game, when the time comes that I have a concrete idea for a game project that I want to make? I wanna let you know that a big portion of my inspiration is from your game, really!)
Internal Medicine is our submission to the Extra Credits Jam 2020. The theme of the jam was "Take Care". Play as a young professional in the medical industry as she struggles with the taking care of her ailing patients, while attempting to maintain a modicum of sanity.
This game is intended to be played using a gamepad, though one is not required.
WASD, Left Joystick - Walk
Space, A - Interact
How to Play:
Notifications will let you know which rooms are occupied by new patients. Diagnose patients by interacting with them and bring them medicine from the pharmacy. If your stress levels rise, you can either stand around or take a break in the break room. Monitors scattered around the hospital will tell you how many patients are in the waiting room. Take care of as many patients as possible within the time limit to advance.

Thank you for the praise! It's nice to hear that you can relate to the themes I tried to implement in the game :) I don't personally have experience in the medical field but I have a few close friends who do and I tried to present the struggles they face from my perspective. I have much respect for anyone who works in the medical space. I would be honored to have you share my work with anyone you think it would benefit! You are also welcome to use anything you find in my games to make your own games and learn from on one condition: you have to link your game here when it's ready so I can play it!
Very nice concept of not only taking care of patients but you also have to take care of yourself. Top marks for this game.
