A popular video game has announced it's adding "anti-vaxxers" as viral disease-spreading entities.
The creators of Plague Inc. declared this week an "anti-vaxxer" scenario will be added as a buff in a new update after a Change.org petition received over 10,000 signatures.
"ICYMI: Alright, alright! You spoke, we listened. Neurie's very happy to hear that we're going to start figuring out anti-vaxxers soon. He's dying to try and get inside their heads," the game's creators said in a tweet Tuesday.
The game, from Ndemic Creations, centers around developing and spreading a pathogen that can infect everyone on the planet.
"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," a description of the game developed in 2012 reads.
