Plague Inc creators, Ndemic Creations, Give $250k to COVID-19 Funds

Plague Inc creators Ndemic Creations are donating a quarter of a million dollars to help combat COVID-19 around the world.

On behalf of all players of Plague Inc. we’ve made a $250,000 donation split between the Coalition of Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

“Eight years ago, I never imagined the real world would come to resemble a game of Plague Inc. or that so many players would be using Plague Inc. to help them get through an actual pandemic,” said James Vaughan, creator of Plague Inc. “We are proud to be able to help support the vital work of the WHO and CEPI as they work towards finding a vaccine for COVID-19”.


Major new Plague Inc. update

When arranging our donations with the WHO and CEPI, we were repeatedly asked if we could make a game which let the player work to stop an outbreak. Therefore, as well as providing financial support, we are accelerating work on a new Plague Inc. game mode which lets players save the world from a deadly disease outbreak.
Really enjoyed this game on my iPad (too small to play on my phone). Lots of arm chair Plague Inc experts have added their two cents to this mess. I look forward to the added realism of the new scenario

Very decent move by these devs. Looking at the media they portray gamers as basement dwelling neckbeards and mass shooters, but the reality is always different.

Like look at EV for example. I have HUGE differing opinions on almost all political issues here, but I've made friends with a few people here and can generally agree that though we are of HUGE differing ideologies, we can still find common ground on not being a giant douchecanoe.

I have the board game; have had it for several years. Finally played it the other day, and it was really fun! This is a great game, good for them, and also good for them for donating to this cause. I was hoping they could perhaps give information on how to combat the virus, but maybe that's too advanced for this game.
I used to indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Go Against the Flow.

I don't think we should let China play this game.
...using emotionally-laden bold fonts.
