Plague Inc. is 10 years old today!

I can't believe it, Plague Inc. is 10 years old and still going strong!

It’s crazy looking back on myself in 2012 - I’d never made a video game before and was making Plague Inc. as a hobby (with Mario doing the programming). Within hours of release, things were going well and after a week it was clear that the game was a big success, however, I had no idea how much the game would change both my life - and (in a much smaller way) 180 million other people around the world! 

Today Plague Inc. is one of the best selling mobile games ever. I’m particularly proud of being invited to talk at the CDC, winning an award from the Queen and helping to support the World Health Organisation in 2020. 

It's truly been a pleasure to bring this game into the world and continually update it over the years, and to see so many players enjoy the work we did!

Thanks to everyone who has played, supported or worked on Plague Inc. over the years, I couldn’t have done it without you!

I will be doing a Reddit AMA on Thursday 26th May at 2pm EST, right here if you want to ask me anything!

In the mean time, feast your eyes on 10 years of analytics to find out what the most popular disease names of all time are, how many virtual people have been infected in game and more.
