Fans of apocalyptic scenarios certainly know the game Plague Inc, which offers the ability to virtually spread the disease, so that the player can thus conquer the world. Under normal conditions, not much was said about the game, but with the advent of coronavirus it was banned in China.
Stopping the infection instead of spreading it as a new goal
While players were previously given only the role of illness and aimed to wipe out humanity, the creators have now announced a mode in which the player can stop the spread of the selected disease. Ndemic Creations is also a pandemic fund donated $ 250,000, and so those who have banned the game from the past have shown that it is still for the preservation of civilization, and that a virtual pandemic is just a game. The creators point out that eight years ago, when the game was launched, they never dreamed that one day it could become a picture of a realistic scenario, and help players to overcome a real pandemic.
The new mode was created through discussion with World Health Organization experts, giving players the ability to control the spread of a selected epidemic and to practice the social distance that is recommended today. There will be a new update free for all users, and it is still unknown when they might arrive, since, as the company says, all developers work from home.
