CorsixTH is a clone of Theme Hospital. As computers evolve, we risk losing some classic games. Bullfrog's Theme Hospital, published in 1997, is a classic simulation game, but getting it to run natively on modern operating systems is getting progressively harder. CorsixTH aims to reimplement the game engine of Theme Hospital, and to be able to load the original game data files. This means that you will need a purchased copy of Theme Hospital, or a copy of the demo, in order to use CorsixTH. After most of the original engine has been reimplemented, the project will serve as a base from which extensions to the original game can be made.
fretscpp is strongly inspired by the original FoF, reusing artwork to a large extent, with the source code rewritten from scratch. C++ instead of python should improve performance and allow easier support for features like whammy. It is playable, but some non-critical features are still missing.
