Surgeon Simulator on iPad has received its first update, turning the purposefully-awkward game about a terrible surgeon into a purposefully-awkward game about a terrible surgeon and linguist. The update adds new languages to the game, while also paving the way for an alien patient DLC, which will be added free of charge "soon."

The related press release also gave a glimpse into just how many people in the world should never be trusted with sharp medical instruments: 28,400 Surgeon Simulator Touch videos were uploaded to YouTube during its launch month. While that's not necessarily a 1:1 ratio of players to videos, even one amateur surgeon cracking open ribcages with hammers is plenty.
