Full Fact have partnered with Ndemic Creations to create a new Fake News scenario of their bestselling game Plague Inc. (with over 130 million players!)
The original Plague Inc. game challenges players to infect the world with a deadly plague. In this new scenario, players will be spreading false information across the globe, trying to deceive everyone before fact checkers can thoroughly debunk them and save the world from chaos and confusion.
Partly based on our experiences, and that of our fellow international fact checkers, the game is a heightened view into the extremes of misinformation and the serious consequences it can have for our democracies, health and society.
To find our scenario, download Plague Inc, hit play and go to the Scenarios menu. The Fake News scenario is currently available on iOS. The PC and Android updates are coming soon.
