Ndemic Creations has shared the big news that its strategy Plague Inc reached a milestone of 100 million players. In addition, the developers have shared the cheery news that those same players wiped the face of Earth 1.5 billion times.
Plague Inc’s creator James Vaughan stated:
It’s been an incredible experience building something that so many people are enjoying,” says Plague Inc.’s creator James Vaughan. “To see the game that I made reach over 1.3% of the whole world’s population is deeply humbling, and I’m so grateful to all the players for their support.
