It’s entirely unrelated to Origin but Theme Hospital has just been released on GOG today and it seemed like the perfect excuse to share what is without a doubt the largest gaming item I own.
The item in question is a standup advert for Theme Hospital that I picked up at the same time as the Bioforge one. It appears to have never been used as the foldout supporting sections at the back are still intact, although I’m not convinced they are large enough to hold this thing up in the first place. I resorted to leaning it up against one of my bookcases of old gaming mags in order to grab a photo.
Even as store advertising goes, this thing isn’t subtle and dwarfs the Bioforge standup by comparison. It’s taller than I am and almost brushed the ceiling when unfolded. This doesn’t make it the most practical of collectibles in a house the size of mine but I had to buy it at the price. Now I just need to figure out what I’m going to do with it.
