Plague Inc: Evolved is a pandemic simulation game released by Ndemic Creations in 2015. The objective of the game is to help a pathogen spread through the whole world.

Enthusiasm for Decimation

Plague Inc: Evolved is a game created for the evil inside you. You will choose your patient zero from the world map. Then it is your job to promote the spread of your pathogen and destroy the health of the human race.

You can improve the infectious bug through building resistance to drugs and heat. Ordering air and sea travel can help spread the disease to other countries. Increasing the population of insects and birds can help create dire consequences. However, timing is important. In the early phases, the pathogen needs to be harder to detect. Otherwise, scientists will impede the spread of the disease through developing cures. You can control the genetics of your pathogen. The right rate of mortality can help it escape early detection.

The game offers a plethora of options and scenarios to cause maximum mayhem in the human population. Bacteria, virus, worm, fungus, bio-weapon and more are up for grabs to make the world an unsafer place. You will have elaborate data about each of these options to make intelligent decisions to create your pandemic outbreak. It might sound complicated but the gameplay is intuitive and fast-paced. With a few clicks, you can annihilate massive parts of the human race.

Race to the Death, Literally

Multiplayer mode provides a great way to compete with the evilness of your friends. It is set up as sudden death. You have to infect the whole human population with your pathogen before your opponents. You also try to block the progress of your opponents through developing cures for their diseases. The player who manages to populate the whole human race first wins the game. It creates a fast-paced gameplay. The infected areas of the worlds are displayed in different colors for different players.

Graphics, Sound, and Scenarios

Graphics on this game is remarkably well done. As the pathogen progresses, you can clearly see what part of the world you are dominating. Also, lines show the progress of the pathogen from one country to another. You can see the planes and ships transporting your disease to different parts of the world. The music gets a bit repetitive after awhile. But the visuals keep it interesting.

The game provides 18 scenarios. Users can also create and share their custom scenarios with the rest of the community. It means new ones get created almost every day.

Conclusion

Plague Inc: Evolved is an exciting game that can make you an expert on the spread of diseases. The CDC has praised the developers for the accurate portrayal of pandemics. You can also play the game with an imaginary zombie outbreak. Whether you choose a real or imaginary pathogen, you will have fun getting rid of humanity.
