game news Two Point Campus: The New Standard for Management Games? We saw in a few minutes!
If you ever said to yourself “I can’t take this teacher anymore, if I can dismiss him…”, then it is now possible! Build a state-of-the-art campus, where you learn cool tricks like building a big robot or cooking a huge burger in Two Point Campus, a management game available on all consoles and PCs, offered on Gamepass. Will it start on August 8? The answer is in the video!
The world of Two Point County
It’s the same world as Two Point Hospital, so we find the references we know. A bit crazy world, very cartoonish, fun to browse, but a real new game. Players feared that “to point hospital but you’re building a school”, they can be reassured.
12 scenarios and 17 different formations are suggested, and to combat fatigue, all of these are very different from each other. Spending several hours in each scenario to get all three is fun, and the exercises cover very broad things, like learning to become a knight or doing magic, not to mention what happens later in the game. And at worst, there’s a highly customizable sandbox to create a game to your liking.
Cute, with successful animation
The powerful Two Point Hospital engine is back, and you’ll have it Colorful and beautiful world to look at where each scenario provides a very specific atmosphere. Like “Here’s Hogwarts, it’s up to you to take care of it.” Sorry, “Poule-de-lard”, you have the reference. Above all, the game offers plenty of items that students and staff can interact with. There are a lot of funny animations, you just have to stop in front of the classroom to realize that the students are doing a lot of things. Pressing the buttons at their fingertips, taking notes, holding an instrument and doing anything with it…we’re talking about hundreds of interactions.
Nice and stress-free construction all around
Building this campus is a picnic, which isn’t often in management games. Usually it’s rather “Olala we have to build a fourth version of this room, I’m a little lazy”. What’s more, you have to go fast or do it while on pause, and you live in a world where everything is fixed. At Two Point Campus, we have time! The game takes place in two distinct phases, and this is the big novelty. The first is the long vacations, an active break where the people who are already on campus continue to live their lives without learning anything, just making ends meet. During this time, the player plans for the next year by choosing the training offered and building the necessary infrastructure. By taking your time. You can break everything and redo everything at will. And take advantage of the power of the creation tools available.
You can thus duplicate a room and save a model to be able to reuse it in other scenarios, move it, make it bigger or smaller…as desired. With filters in menus and customization in a few clicks, it gives Fun and powerful tool. The toilet block is added with just a few clicks.
This efficiency extends beyond buildings. The entire campus is available to you, including the virgin land. You can buy new land with or without a pre-constructed building, and do whatever you want with it. Maybe just expand your main building to create a massive building. Or make lots of small outbuildings with beautiful wooded paths connecting them. The no-pay hidden puzzle management game has become a rarity! Understand by this that we never find ourselves in a situation where “Oh my God, I have to put this very large room into a very small space, and I have to move everything.” No, if it does not pass, you can enlarge the space and pass.
Students and private lessons
When your campus is ready, the second phase begins: the academic year itself. Your students go to class according to a schedule predetermined by the game, and this is an opportunity to check that everything is going well. This is not the most attractive stage, sometimes we tend to press the button that speeds up the passage of time. Please note that we are not talking about sitting idly by, your students and staff have needs.
Yes, it is not easy to study on an empty stomach or a full bladder. Your students are a mix of Sims and RPG characters. Sims because they need bars to fill in to be happy, and by being happy they learn and get good grades. RPG characters because learning takes place in the form of XP and levels. So if you take the game, you can have fun managing each student who has a bad average to try to understand what’s wrong, and maybe help him out. It’s well balanced and since you’re not expected to do great work at this point, you don’t feel like you’re sacrificing a great cause just for a student.
You will also have to respond to constant requests for infrastructure to do their homework, celebrities visiting campuses, manage natural disasters, train your teams or manage student parties and clubs… just a few things to do. We would have liked, to dodge, in clearer interfaces. They are beautiful in PowerPoint presentation style, but not very effective.
School has never been so fun
Let’s finish by evoking the special vibe at Two Point Campus. beyond animation, This universe is an effective parody of the American school system. For example, each student indicates the amount of his university debt, while it is useless in the game. References to Two Point Hospital and items already created at that time are numerous. The radio announcers, always present and backed by fresh faces, entertain us with foolish intrusions that can gently mock capitalism, sects, or the students themselves. And excellent news, it is translated if you activate the option! Go please, for the next match, the French dubbing will be perfect!
Two Point Campus is the modern standard for old school management games. The hospital was an excellent remake and here a new topic is being explored which is a huge success. The emerging universe is cool, but above all the game is effective. The inherent redundancy of this genre is effectively combated by many scenarios with different objectives and themes. A choice of two stages and advanced construction tools make even the biggest tasks easy and fun. We want more!
