Necroa Virus

I recently bought the Necroa Virus add-on to the Plague Inc. video game, which is the zombie pathogen. For those of you who are not familiar with the game, you basically choose a pathogen class to evolve, infect and destroy humanity. I named my Necroa Virus ‘Venom’. As you mutate the symptoms of the virus, the host’s brain starts to visibly change, as shown in the below cross-section progression:

I chose my patient zero to be geographically located in the UK. Since the UK is a major logistics hub on a global scale, my infected vector took hardly any time at all to spread the virus:

Since the spread of my Venom Necroa Virus was so exponential, the global news picked up on it pretty quickly, and several countries started to work on a cure:

Up until this stage of the game, people had only been infected with the virus, and no one had yet been killed. However, due to mutating the abilities of the virus over time, the severity and lethality increased to the point where the virus was causing deaths. Only when infected vectors die can you convert them into zombies, which i obviously proceeded to do:

You can see above that i evolved my zombies to employ horde instinct and mentality to swamp countries and spread the virus – you can see the pop-up of a zombie swarm hitting Australia above. During the spread of your virus, you will receive information on global happenings. Notably (if you choose the Necro Virus pathogen class) after a while one country will set up ‘Z Com’, which is a project set in motion to combat the spread of the virus. As you will see in the consolidated information feed below, Z Com was set up in Mexico during my game, and i was successful in overthrowing them:

Even though i was able to overthrow Z Com, i still was unable to infect and destroy the global population in totality. The leading research countries were able to find a cure for the virus, and overall 3 percent of the global human population survived my zombie apocalypse (they probably had Gordon Freeman on their team or something):

You can download Plague Inc. on your phone. You get standard plague types with the game, but the following plague types require special download: Neurax Worm, Necroa Virus, Simian Flu and Unknown. I think in US$ it cost me about $3 to get the special Necroa Virus download. Let me know if you’ve played any of these special plagues and how successful you’ve been in attempting to eradicate humanity with your apocalypse.

  1. Ya I loved playing this game the zombie mod is very fun. Especially because even if a country closes it borders you can just have them travel to the country on their own. I found while playing that if I try to keep the virus hidden until everyone in the world or at least 95% is then I usually would win. But you have to make sure no one dies and that they do not see any symptoms.

    Anyways fun game like your review of the game and the step by step show case of your game. Sucks you lost but next time I believe you will wipe out the world lol 😛

  2. There was a similar flash game years and years ago called pandemic. I remember when a disease was first discovered, Madagascar would immediately close its borders and there was no way of winning. “Shut down everything” was the running meme. Ah, nostalgia. It’s been a while since I last tried to wipe out the wolrd…I’m gonna have to check this game out. lol
