Your Inn will soon attract the attention of important political and military figures, who are desperately trying to hold on to the reins of power.

BIG PHARMA IS MAKING ITS WAY TO PLAYSTATION 4, XBOX ONE AND NINTENDO SWITCH!

WARSAW, POLAND, JULY 30, 2018 – Today, Klabater officially announced that Big Pharma, a PC best-selling pharmaceutical management sim, will be launched for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Q3 June 2019. It is the ideal choice for gamers who are looking for both deep management & strategy mechanics and easy pad-adapted controls. 

  • New gameplay teaser available here
  • New screens available at klabater.com/press  („Big Pharma” folder)

Big Pharma is part business sim, part logistics puzzle. It’s one thing to work away in the lab perfecting new formulas, but converting the ‘sciency stuff’ into cold hard cash means bringing an engineering and business mind to the problem. Factory space is expensive, and those fancy new agglomerators and centrifuges don’t always slot nicely together.

What if you had it in your power to rid the world of disease, to improve the lives of millions, to ease suffering and cure the sick and earn a tidy profit? As the head of your own Pharmaceutical Conglomerate you have this power resting in your hands. Will you use it for good? Being totally altruistic may not be the best business plan. The uncomfortable truth (is there an ointment for that?) is that some remedies are more profitable than others and illness is good for business. Welcome to the world of Big Pharma!

Big Pharma is an amazing example of great management sim. It will turn you into zombie as it is nearly impossible to quit playing this game. It’s so addictive!“- said Lukasz Mach, Head of Marketing & PR at Klabater – „We hear a lot from console gamers that they seek for deeper games, especially  when it comes to mechanics. Ok guys, Big Pharma is as deep as you can imagine on any platform, so enjoy it and turn your console into a Pharmaceutical Conglomerate!.

In Big Pharma you will find:

  • 35 business-busting challenges spread out across 7 unique scenarios
  • Custom game mode
  • Freebuild mode
  • Tons of new ingriedients and recipes to discover
  • Hi-tech machines to help you  refine the next generation of world-changing drugs.
  • Wide range of business models to fit your Pharmaceutical Conglomerate

Big Pharma will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch Q3 2019. For more information, please visit Klabater’s FB page.
