Very unique and addictive
I was actually really impressed with this submission.
I'm into this kinda stuff too, so yeah, i really liked it.
I like the whole idea of ending the world in a very realistic fashion, hehe.
My suggestion though;
Makes the population numbers more realistic.
There are about 6,525,170,264 people in the world (according to an article from july 2006)
so figure out the population of each of your countries, and eliminate the fractions (like if there are 3,347,192,967 people in asia, make it 3 or 3.5 billion)
I think that would add alot of length to the game.
Another thing you might try is adding more news breaks, and maybe to add realism, make a seperate news page, with a news paper page, or a T.V screen showing sick people, hospital beds, riots, ect.
And on the screen where you can evolve your strain, maybe add an illistration, so you can see the cell and all that, and like, every time you upgrade, something new will happen on it.
Like, it'll grow a new little tentical or, or change color, or attack the human cells differently. Something like that would be a great addition to the experience.
Maybe even have a dummy on the side, so you can see what it does to people. And you could even have an x-ray button, so you can see their organs or something. What it's doing inside their bodies.
Basicly, the only problems i had with the game were:
I wish it was longer (maybe eliminate the turn limit)
I also thought you should be able to choose the first effects of the strain (Coughing, fever, vomiting, ect.)
Like maybe start out with a few points to work with and pick some minor symptoms.
And then i thought it would be more fun to be able to choose where it starts.
There should also be more transmissions.
Like maybe add Sexual transmission, or physical contact.
but yeah, anyways...
This is really long, but i'm just trying to be helpful.
i thought it was a great game, but it could be so much more.
If it's alright, i'm interested in helping, if you'd like to update it a little.
I'm skilled in photoshop, i'm a good at studying things (like learning about viruses) and i have some minor flash experience( search "Savior: Chapter One")
And i have a huge imagination, i'm told.
And i think i would really enjoy working on this further with you guys. You wouldnt even have to give me credit.
but yeah, get back to me if possible, my email is waste.face@hotmail
Thanks for this game, i really enjoyed it.
