Name: The Reaper Syndrome
Cause: Being too gothic.
Symptoms: The patient dresses up as the grim reaper and tries to take the souls of the dead.
Cure: A trained psychiatrist how many souls they have collected. They are cured once they realise they've collected none.
Path: GP, Cardio, Scanner, Pysch

It might be a good reason to get the Grim Reaper sprite in it more :D

A very good suggestion indeed! :-) We could at least use it as a new emergency... (there are no sprites for the grim reaper using any equipment).

Parvo Capite - Small head
Mortuorum Ambulantum - The walking dead

Just go nuts with a translator. A pro tip is that everything with -itis is inflammation.

After reading about the Santa Clause idea, I think seasonal diseases are funny and good... worth working on them!

Hare Complex - Spring, during Mar- May
Cause: Too many egg hunts during the easter days
Symptoms: wears a huge bunny costume.
Cure: The patient must be radically freed from the costume. After a psychic consultation and scanner diagnosis confirmed that the costume ist't attached to the limbs or vital organs in any way, the costume is electrolyted away - once and for all. Leaving the smell of burnt fur and permanent aversion for anything connected with hares, bunnies or eggs.

Beach Peacock - Summer, during Jun - Aug
Cause: Too many episodes of Jersey Shore and spin-offs causing the DNA to shift to "Jersey" (like in the one South Park episode ^^)
Symptoms: wears only shorts (men) or bikinis (women)
Cure: The cardio machine is used to power the patients out, Hair restoration takes care of the bad hair style and the DNA fixer removes the bad gene.
Path: GP, Cardio, Hair restore, DNA fixer

Craft-oh-mania - Autumn / Fall, during Sep - Nov
Cause: Too many sweets and pumpkin pie during Halloween
Symptoms: wears a witch / Wizard costume and murmurs "spells".
Cure: After a blood test confirmed too much sugar in the body the patient is sent to the pharmacy where he or she gets a very bitter "potion" consisting of spider legs and eel eyes - causing them to vomit all the candy out!
Afterwards the patient must be convinced that their appearence gives bad reputation to "real" witches and for their sake they should take off the costume.
Path: GP, blood machine, Pharmacy, Psyche (treatment)
[Referes to "The Craft"]

Well... I like it! ^^
But there's a thing that came up my mind too: for such things as seasonal diseases the Calendar should run a little slower. Three month is like a minute play. It not just awfully unrealistic - I know a game doesn't have to be but come on sitting like 6 month around at a hospital for a cough??? - its a little hectic. But that's just my two cents.

Some rooms need to be used more. I like the idea to use the research department for a cure.

Bieber fever?
Bieber Fever
Cause: You became to populair, to young, to fast.
Symptoms: The urge to pull off your shirt and show your tummy to everyone and a stylish (?) hairdo that defies gravity.
Cure: A trained psychiatrist must convince you that your songs s*ck big time and that no one wants to see you boyish sixpack. Your hair has to be removed in the hair restauration, because no human invention would be able to get it back to normal. But oh well... It'll grow back.

Name: Temporal Dislocation
Cause: Meeting future self.
Cure: A doctor tells the patient to step into a time machine and then uses this machine to cure the patient by slowing down the rate of their temporal jumps (disappearing into the future/past and then reappearing with a different appearance) until their temporal jumps cease.
Diagnostic process: GP's office, psychiatrist, scanner
Would require: new animations/graphics and sounds.

Untreated appearance ideas: I think the patient's appearance should occasionally change when they've had a temporal jump:
  • Normal patient
  • Cyborg
  • Cave man/woman
  • Knight
  • Roman Legionary

Name: Gaming Addict
Cause: Playing too much Corsix TH.
Cure: Hypnotherapy: a psychiatrist straps the gaming addict to a metal frame (could remove a VR visor/virtual boy from their head) then pulls out their eye balls (Clock Work Orange style) and then walks over to a console and uses it to turn on a black on white hypnotising wheel.
Diagnostic process: GP's office,psychiatrist
Would require: new animations/graphics and new psychiatrist room objects.

Name: Phantom Limb.
Cause: Constantly sticking hands into holes in walls and pretending they're being bitten off.
Symptoms: Invisible extremities.
Cure: Random assortment of placebos with mild soporific, plus a follow up appointment to correct sense of humour.

Name: Funny Bones.
Cause: Unexpectedly painful corners on furniture.
Symptoms: An almost total loss of motor control in the arms.
Cure: Surgical replacement of all humorous bones.

Name: Hyperchondria.
Cause: Frequent self diagnosis.
Symptoms: The patient will genuinely gain every symptom of illness that they see or hear about.*
Cure: Cocktail of antibiotics followed by a lecture on seeking professional advice in future.
*Visually the patient will take on the same appearance of any sick people they come near to, e.g - if they pass a person with Serious Radiation they will turn green, if they pass someone with Fractured Bones they will return to normal but be wrapped in bandages etc.

I think we should keep well clear of the ones that nobody is going to get in five years (Bieber fever). There are also loads like that which could be handled by Psychology without a need for extra rooms.

Name: Gaseous Turpitude
Cause: Eating year-old chilli from fast-food outlets.
Symptoms: Patient is prone to sudden noxious windy guffs that engulf patients in the corridors and make them puke.
Cure: Nurse administers a jug of prune juice, patient rushes to toilet.

Alt cure (funnier) a doctor attaches a massive gas extractor to the patient's rump (could be in the surgery) and sucks the nasty wiffs right out of them. (expect funny faces) Gas is sold to the practical joke industry.

Superfandom (would require multiple graphics for different patients to make it less monotonous).

Causes: Watching the same Cult Classic films and drinking too much cola, leading to them believing they have morphed into the lead.

Cure: A Pharmacist gives a potent, slightly radioactive solution and the Psychiatrist gives them a firm talking too.

Rooms: GP, General Diagnosis, Psych, Nurse, Psych.

The psychiatrist could also cure shopaholics. We need new graphics for people with this syndrome. I think a woman with a mink coat, jewellery, shiny red shoes, and lots of shopping bags.

And then she walks out witch censored signs covering her chest and bottom:

A play on the saying All Fur Coat no Knickers
