Autopsy Simulator is Probably Not What You Think

With a name like that, you’d expect it to be some silly gimmick about digging bullets out of melon-shaped heads, in zero gravity, with a pair of curling tongs. But, nay. This is an actual game. Honestly, the name is quite odd, just give the trailer a look and you’ll see what we mean. Perhaps something more like The Mortician would be a better idea. But either way, one has to admit, I’m rather intrigued.

Official Press Release


Grab your scalpel and tools in this first person medical-horror mystery

Tuesday, 27 February 2024 – Woodland Games and Team17 Digital have announced that the medical-horror sim Autopsy Simulator will arrive on PC in 2024. Originally announced in 2022, the first-person horror experience will give players control of a forensic doctor battling his inner demons while undertaking autopsies in the 1990s.

Autopsy Simulator will see players study realistic case files, created in collaboration with real-world forensic practitioners, to help guide their examinations and dissections. Utilising medically authentic tools and procedures, players will learn all they can about the deceased before unraveling the mystery of their deaths.
