The Curious Case of Plague Inc.’s Brexit Trophy

Posted in Gaming these days ... with tags , , on June 7, 2017 by Rabidgames

You might know Plague Inc. You know, that great game where your aim is to infect and eradicate mankind from the face of the planet. It’s fun. Great fun. Not just because you rid earth of the human pest, but also because of the hilariously funny news reports you get, and because of some weird trophies you can unlock …

The weirdest one though is called “Brutal Brexit” and the description reads “Put Britain on the road to madness when it leaves the EU”. Now it should be noticed the road to that trophy (or achievement to be consolely correct) is quite muddled – it seems your disease is not allowed to have hit the UK when Brexit gets announced, but then you need to hit Britain with very specific symptoms and you need to infect everybody in the entire UK.

In a game full of black humour and the black death, such a trophy shouldn’t be a surprise. And of course, Plague Inc. was developed in the UK. British humour at its darkest. And best.

Rabidgames smiles: Trophies are often dull. One could claim they’re completely unnecessary. But in some instances, they just make you grin.
