Plague Inc Game Developers Say They’ll Add Anti-Vaxxer Scenario After Petition

Plague Inc, the real-time strategy simulation game where you play as a host of diseases and try to eradicate the world, is trending on Change.org with a petition to add Anti-Vaxxers as a new buff for the game. Not only that, the creators seem keen on doing it, too.

In the game, you start off as a tiny disease somewhere in the world, posing no threat to anyone. As time passes and you infect people, you gain points that can be used to evolve your disease, increase its resistance to medical science and the earth’s harsh climate and find new ways of spreading over land, water, and air. The easier the disease spreads, the more likely it’ll be discovered and fought against.

Eventually, scientists will begin working on a cure, and it’s your job to create global chaos through death and destruction to stop that progress until the last man on earth is dead. If even a handful of people survive, it ends in a game-over, with the hopeful message that humanity will rise again.
