Plague Inc. Is Now Getting Their Players To Save The World, Not Infect It

The developers have also donated $250,000 for Covid-19’s cause.

Plague Inc. by Ndemic Creations was a popular game during launch, but due to the world’s situation right now, the game has become even more popular.

The idea of infecting the world within your palm while people are dying out there is actually quite the dark entertainment, but anyone who’s been home for two weeks would have a few screws loose by now.

Still, Ndemic Creations tried to turn the table, well, at least in game. The newest mode is not about a new strain of virus, bacteria or kind of plague. The game is now allowing players to “save the world from a deadly disease outbreak.”

This new mode will be free and has been in development with the World Health Organization and the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network. In their statement, Ndemic Creations wrote, “Players will have to balance managing disease progression and boosting healthcare systems as well as controlling real-world actions such as triaging, quarantining, social distancing and closing of public services.”

James Vaughan the creator said, “Eight years ago, I never imagined the real world would come to resemble a game of Plague Inc.” Ndemic quickly issued the warning that the game should never become a model of learning in tackling the new spread of coronavirus.

The game was also pulled out from the Chinese app store for “content that is illegal in China as determined by the Cyberspace Administration of China.”

Together with the announcement of new game mode that saves people, Ndemic Creations also have donated $250,000 that is split between Coalition of Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
