Ndemic Creations, Plague Inc - Review and Gameplay
This is a dark game but enjoyable.
What are your thoughts? Is this simply a crowd sourced scenario and statistics tool that someone is capitalizing on via big data?
A couple years back, I was introduced to this game on IOS.. it had a freemode and that was the only real requirement for me to download it and give it a shot. It turns out to be one of the longest running games to live on my phone, as well as one of the most disturbing.
Plague Inc is a simple premise. To be ‘Victorious’, you must murder all of mankind.
In this simulator, there is no evil mastermind.. it is simply a biological element go awry and spreading. Was it sourced in a lab or naturally virulent? Who knows.. it isnt really the point, though there is a definite Enders Game feel to this as you craft the strongest collective elements tigether and scenario the perfect ‘win’
There is some hope (for me at least). I have started playing the game with alternate ‘win’ rules. I destroy humanity to the point of seeming no return, and then let the fame play out for 30 years to see if humanity can rebuild if the plague loses its ability to kill.
