Plague Inc: Evolved recently added anti-vaxxers into its game, and while most people have found the update to be hilarious, there’s a lot of people who aren’t laughing.
Over on Steam, the game has been receiving “not recommended” reviews for its recent addition, with one player even branding it as a game for “far left SWJs [social justice warriors].”

One Twitter user has compiled some of the most shocking of the reviews, and the response on social media has been overwhelming.
Game where literally you infect people based on climate and if they have viral and bacteria fighting drugs which just literal vaccines and medicine but when mentioned it is a vaccine that fights that kind of stuff they draw the line??? What are these people smoking?

God, this would be so much funnier if anti-vax wasn’t such a threat rofl.

I’m amazed anti-vaxxers can use computers to type this out. I thought they’d think they were black magic or something and just carve into blocks of wood with crystals.

Luckily for Plague Inc: Evolved, the Steam reviews haven’t yet impacted its score of “very positive.”
If you haven’t played it yet, don’t let the anti-vaxxers put you off, as it’s actually a really nice simulation game.
The Steam page reads: “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.”
