The Brain follows the same premise as its predecessor Life & Death, wherein the player controls an up-and-coming surgeon who must perform simulated surgery on patients with varying problems. The sequel focuses on the brain, whereas the first game focused on the abdomen.
The graphics and gameplay have been improved from the first game, but, other than the new patient cases, it plays more or less the same.

All characters portrayed herein are ficticious.
Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. We'd like to express our appreciation for our recently appointed fearless leader, Dave Grenewetzki. It's a dirty job but somebody's gotta do it.
And finally, the producer wishes to thank his partners in crime for doing a damn fine job under very difficult circumstances.
Rick & Hal.
