Plague, Inc: Evolved is a strategy game developed by Ndemic Creations. In this desktop game, your goal is to create a virus or bacteria that’s strong enough to wipe out the entire human race. This is done by piecing together different symptoms and characteristics to keep them from being cured. There are twenty-three unique scenarios where you can curate your diseases on your own or in co-op mode. The co-operative setting enables two players to combine diseases and create brand new genes. You can also opt to play against one another. The player that infects the most humans wins.
Plague Inc: Evolved is part of Ndemic Creations’ Plague series, which are inspired by grand strategy games where you overthrow leaders and overthrow their kingdom. Instead of physical combat, Plague, Inc. focuses on biological warfare. You can use Bacteria, Virus, Fungus, Parasite, Prion, Nano-virus, and Bio-weapon as your base. New players can only select Bacteria which has the lowest threat level. As the game progresses, you will unlock the next six plagues. Each of which are more aggressive than the other.
The game begins by choosing which country you want the disease to originate. You can select a country at random but if you want to create a tactical strategy, its best to choose one where your disease can thrive. This means you should consider a country’s climate, population, and resources. For example, choosing South Korea can be both beneficial and detrimental. It has a cold climate wherein a bacteria can thrive, but it also has a lot of resources that can help them find a cure.
The plague will move from country to country on its own. Each time it does this, you will earn points in the form of DNA. You must use these points to purchase genetic code enhancements. It can also be used to purchase Transmissions, Symptoms, and Abilities. Altogether, these will help you increase the rate of infection, lethality, and passive resistance. The faster you mutate a virus, the harder it will be for countries to find a cure.
