While different countries have varying amounts of success when it comes to dealing with the worldwide pandemic, Jujubee has allowed gamers to try and control the situation themselves with COVID: The Outbreak. The game came out in May to positive reviews, and players will now get a chance to check it out as it is now on sale for 30% off on Steam.
Here’s the gameplay trailer:
COVID: The Outbreak is a real-time strategy game in which you play the role of a global organization that has to deal with a global pandemic. Issue decrees, manage resources, develop projects, and construct buildings. A race for the vaccine begins!
What’s also great is that the game provides some real information that could be vital to surviving the pandemic which you could apply to real life. They’ve been really careful when it came to designing the game, even gathering official data published by WHO as well as getting input from professionals.
Besides having to build new buildings and research for a cure, they even address the problem of ‘non-believers’ when it comes to the outbreak—a very real problem that the US is facing right now.
COVID: The Outbreak is now available on Steam.
