Game Review: ‘Bio Inc. Redemption’

February 27, 2024

With what happened a couple of years ago with the lockdowns, many people became fascinated with how diseases work, and how they affect people. Call it morbid curiosity, or call it legitimate understanding, either way, part of you wonders what it would be like to create or fight diseases. Well, the folks over at DryGin Studios have been answering this question with their “Bio Inc.” game series. They were awesome enough to send over their latest title to their series (Big thank you, by the way!) for me to check out. This is Bio Inc. Redemption.

Bio Inc. Redemption is a strategy medical simulator where you are either the virus or the doctor trying to save the patient. For this review, I chose the side of death, because I’m a morbid twerp like that, so this is based mainly on that playthrough. The controls are straightforward though I feel the tutorial for console versions could be a bit clearer. Be prepared for some interesting sound effects that will either make you laugh or cringe, especially if you’re dealing with the digestive system.

I found the game actually quite fun and at times a bit silly, especially if you make the patient promiscuous and you have to spin the wheel of sexually transmitted diseases that will affect the overall health of the patient. I found it fascinating that in real-world diseases and medical conditions, you can evolve these conditions after collecting enough points that you gather to either make conditions worse for the patient, or make things more difficult for them such as making the doctor give bad treatments, make nurses go on strike, or have it that the patient has a phobia of doctors.

Overall, if you’re curious about how diseases work or want to be a doctor like House, you’ll more than likely enjoy Bio Inc. Redemption. On my scale of 1-10, I give it an 8.5 as it could use a bit more freedom to create diseases outside of the sandbox mode.

Bio Inc. Redemption is out now on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, Android, and IOS.
