Plague Inc. is a strategy videogame developed by Ndemic Creations. It is available for iOS devices and those using Android. The main objective of the game is to create and evolve a pathogen to spread across the world in an effort to destroy humanity with a lethal plague. Plague Inc. uses complex variables to simulate the spread of the plague, the severity, the behavior of governments and even natural catastrophes.
The game is played using a world map with which you control all relevant aspects of the gameplay. You can check how many countries are infected or use the Disease menu for an overview of your pathogen. You can also evolve some traits such as transmission routes, symptoms or special abilities. Your objective is to infect every single country and then kill the whole world population before scientists develop a cure for your disease.

Plague Inc. offers loads of pathogens to choose from such as Bacteria, Virus, Fungus, Parasite, Prion, Nano-Virus, Bio-Weapon, Neurax Worm or Necroa Virus. Each one has special traits and unique gameplay mechanics. For instance, the Bio-Weapon continuously becomes more lethal, making it more likely to kill the hosts before they can spread the disease. However, you can deactivate lethal genes by evolving specific traits.
Evolve and Destroy
You have to give a name to your disease and modify its genetic code to start playing Plague Inc. Genes are perks that will make things easier, with better heat resistance for your pathogen or extra DNA points. You earn new genes every time you complete a game. After that, you can choose your plague type and the starting country. Note that rich countries are a lot harder to infect than poor ones, so choose wisely.
You earn DNA points every once in a while by popping orange bubbles that randomly appear onscreen. Additionally, you earn DNA when your disease moves to another country, infecting them. Your DNA reserves will also fill as the number of infected people increases. I recommend you to use your first DNA points to increase Infectivity, either by developing new transmission routes such as livestock, rodents, air and water or by evolving new symptoms to make it more infectious such as nausea, sneezing or coughing. When almost the whole world population is infected, you should try to make it lethal by using symptoms like Insanity, Coma, Necrosis or Total Organ Failure.
