Hello. My name is Brian. This is the game I created for the 2017 xkcd game jam.

Q. If everyone on the planet stayed away from each other for a couple of weeks, wouldn't the common cold be wiped out?

A. Play the game and let's find out!

The goal is to keep the sick population below 60%.

Keep the sick people separated from the healthy. The sick people will cough and can spread the sickness to nearby healthy people.

Put the sick people in the bed to heal them.

The game progresses day by day until you inevitably lose. What should the win condition be?

I'm looking for feedback! Please let me know what you think. I want to make the game better.

Install instructions

You should be able to simply extract the zip file somewhere and click on the exe file. Please let me know if you have any problems!
