You just never know where Sonic will pop up next. This week, he’s reared his spiky head at Two Point Hospital, a sim management game for consoles and PC.
They’ve certainly gone Sonic-nutty at that hospital. The staff is wandering around in full-body Sonic costumes (there are four you can get: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy). There are also Sonic-related items to nab, like a Sonic statue, decorative rugs and a giant gold ring. Why? Because Sonic is 30 years old, and he decided to have his party here instead of Chuck E Cheese.
“For us, it’s a dream come true to fully bring the joy of Sonic into our universe,” said Studio Director Gary Carr. “With discounts and free trials coming up to coincide with the pack, there’s never been a better time to get involved.”
If you’ve never played Two Point Hospital before or you don’t even know what it is, this is the perfect day to try it out. XBox owners can get the game for a 30% discount and up to 50% off its DLC content, until August 9. If you have a Switch, you can try Two Point Hospital free of charge until August 3. In addition, the entire Two Point Hospital game has been made free to play on Steam until….uh, today. Better get on that; you only have a few hours left.

World War Z is coming back…kind of. It’s largely the same game, but it’s headed to a new platform (Nintendo Switch) with the Deluxe Edition that will contain all the content previously released on PS4 and XBox One. So finally, Switch can stand equally with its contemporaries, right? I hope
