In 2012, a strategy called Plague Inc first appeared on smartphone screens, and a few years later its PC version was released. The goal of the game is to destroy the Earth’s population with the help of various viruses and diseases. The strategy was not particularly popular, at least until recently. But the appearance in China of a new scary coronavirus significantly increased its popularity.
According to App Magic, recently, interest in the strategy has grown significantly, allowing its creators to get rich right before our eyes. From a rather modest game, bringing developers only one and a half ten thousand dollars a day, Plague Inc in recent days has increased the creators' income by at least four times.
The PC version is also experiencing a boom in the interest of gamers - the game has already taken 17th place in the top of the most popular Steam games.
