I've been working on it for almost 2 years and it is available on Kickstarter for a few more days. Backers get a first edition version of the game at a discounted price as well as a load of stretch goals and kickstarter exclusive content.

  • Fixed: Benign Mimic being applied on dead countries
  • Fixed: Cure number display in Vs mode on top bar

About This Game



Plague Inc: Evolved is a unique mix of high strategy and terrifyingly realistic simulation. Your pathogen has just infected 'Patient Zero' - now you must bring about the end of human history by evolving a deadly, global Plague whilst adapting against everything humanity can do to defend itself.

Plague Inc. is so realistic that the CDC even asked the developer to come and speak about the infection models in the game! http://blogs.cdc.gov/publichealthmatters/2013/04/plague-inc/.

Over 65 million players have been infected by Plague Inc. already. Now, Plague Inc: Evolved combines the original critically acclaimed gameplay with significant, all-new features for PC including multiplayer, user-generated content support, improved graphics and lots more.



  • 10 Different Disease Types – Master every pathogen; from bacteria to bio-weapons and mind control to zombies, end humanity by any means possible – different diseases will need radically different approaches.
  • 20 Unique Scenarios – Adapt your strategy; scenarios create further challenges for your pandemic – how will you handle a new strain of Swine Flu, or infect a world in Ice Age?
  • Hyper-Realistic World – Strategize in the real world; advanced AI and use of real-world data and events make Plague Inc: Evolved a highly authentic simulation of a world-ending pathogen. Even the CDC likes it!
  • Competitive Multiplayer - The world is unlucky enough to be infected with two plagues, but how will you win the battle for genetic dominance against your opponent? Players get all new evolutions, abilities and genes to help them fight for global control and destroy their opponent!
  • Co-Operative Mode - Two different diseases team up to infect and destroy the world together but Humanity has new tricks up its sleeve to fight back! Work closely with your partner and use brand-new genes, traits and strategies to smash cure labs all over the world before they eradicate you.
  • Contagious Content Creator - Hit the lab and develop your own custom scenarios - creating new plague types, worlds and in-game events. Sophisticated tools support user-generated content to let players bring their deadliest ideas to life and share them on Steam Workshop. With over 10,000 custom scenarios already released - there is always something new to infect!
  • Blinding Graphics - Full 3D disease models take you closer to your plague than ever before, city-cams show humanity's struggle at street level, and the body scanner highlights the full effect of your mutations, organ by organ.
  • Deadly Data - Geek out with stats and graphs; monitor infection and death levels, track government reactions and cure efforts, then review your plague's success (or failure!) with full game replays.
  • And much more... - Including speed runs, Mega-Brutal difficulty and genetic modification... Plus loads of new disease types and scenarios in future (free!) updates.

Fun game that goes by pretty quick. I've played a single quick game or have done extended sit down sessions. Multiple ways to play extends replayability a bit. Having trouble with winning using Fungus, I'll complete it one day.

After killing all the humans a few times over it dawned on me that this was just a prettier version of the browser game "Pandemic" with a Madagascar patch (that damn island!). It was foolish of me to waste money and time on this product so I advise you, reader and potential buyer, to save your time and money for more exciting experiences.

+Fun
-is a browser based game
-No replayability
-repetitive
-just don't do it

Strategy is only skin deep

Every game of Plague Inc seems to pan out in the same way. Despite attempts at variation, you essentially plop your plague down in a country of your choice, wait a bit, alter the DNA to *sort of* encourage it to spread where you want it, and the rest is spent balancing deadliness, infectivity and humanity's resistance.

In essence, it’s a very ‘procedural’ game, modelling the replication of your badass bug on its travels throughout the world. Crucially though, what it isn’t… is ‘strategic’.

Sure, you can navigate your plague towards different environments – arid, cold, rich, rural etc – by making decisions about how its DNA will mutate, but whatever your choices, your goal is the globe, and that’s what you’ll end up covering.

Similarly, you can see which countries are working hardest on a cure and try to kill those countries off slightly sooner, but in the end, the ‘procedural’ element wins out, and your decisions don’t make much of a difference.

A strategy game where your decisions matter this little isn’t much more than a simulator – or even a slightly interactive video with some bubbles to click.

Give the app a go before you open your wallet – it’s much cheaper!

I will recommend this game, but buy it when it's on sale. To me, it's not worth the 15 bucks I paid for it. It has very limited replayability. Every different type of disease seems like its the same with some things changed. Now as I play it more I may change my opinion but with 3 hours I'm already somewhat bored of it. Don't get me wrong its fun but don't expect it to last a long time.

Really love this game! Think co-op can do better by matching you with equals but really love the co-op too. Every game is different and every starting point is too. I have a gene that chooses my starting country for me when I play co-op, which makes every game a suprise and not just the same strategy over and over again. I would recommend this game to others because it really is a great game and you can also play it when you have like 20 minutes left before you have to leave or something. I like it.

Really good game, well worth its cost.
I've had lots of fun with this, especially while playing almost each plaque type. Even though there are some harder plaques most of them are fairly easy to complete on normal.
I personally had most problems with nano-virus. Also I recommend coop, its really fun and exciting especially if both players play with completely different strategies.
Only bad thing is that you need to complete this game about 50 times in order to unlock everything.

Wonderful time waster that's not too complicated to get into for short bursts then drop immediatly after. However it's also easy to invest quite a bit of time into this to try and erradicate the world with all the ugly, disgusting plagues you can manifest.

Plaque Inc. Is a game that finally let's you live out your fantasy of being the best mad scientist in existence. Let me tell you, there's nothing more satisfying then making the perfect disease and then watching each and every country and continent go dark red with death as all of it's populace succumbs to the most painful and terrifying deaths imaginable. See how desperately the little ants will try to survive, and then laugh at them as you ruin their efforts and destroy their hope. Show them what just one little microscopic organism can do and remind the haughty humans just where their true place in nature is. Masturbate to... no, I haven't been taking my meds, why do you ask?

It's the edge of the world and all northern civilization.
The Sun may rise in the Northeast.
At least it settles in the final location.
It's understood that Greenland sells Greenlandfornication.
Born and raised by those who praise control of population.
Control of population everybody's been there and I don't mean on vacation.
First born unicorn.

play it. destroy humanity. live out your wildest dreams! the scenarios are pretty cool, the gameplay can be fast paced, but you can also keep it chill if you want a more casual experience - and, lets be real, who hasnt spent their entire childhood dreaming of bringing about the end of humanity through a disease you have personally concocted?

10/10, would end humanity's existence again.

Wow, just WOW.
I've been playing this game on and off for about a year or so (not sure), and I find myself coming back to this game. It is such an interesting game idea; infecting the world and eradicating humanity.
I can also guarantee that you will actually LEARN something from this game as did I, from diseases to populations.
Plauge Inc. is also an amazing Real Time Strategy (RTS) game, and you can impress your friends with your strategies (and even dominate them in multiplayer!)
I definitely recommend this game. So many things you can learn, but there is a point (unfortunately) when you may discover all there is to learn and you beat every disease on the hardest difficulty.
Great job, Ndemic Games!
