About Cutting Edge

Cutting Edge is a joint-venture (est. 2009) between the two hospitals University Medical Center Groningen and Medical Center Leeuwarden and game development studio Grendel Games. This unique cooperation allows for the knowledge of two widely different fields to be effectively combined into one product.


Alongside the software component of the game, a hardware add-on for the gaming console is being developed by Pezy in Groningen. This unique peripheral allows for the Wii's remote controller and nunchuk to be inserted into it, so players can control the game using motion that is identical to that used when performing laparoscopic surgery.
