Plague Inc taken down from China App Store

Authorities in China pulled down ’Plague Inc’, a popular game, from the App Store in China. The game lets users create a disease with the goal of spreading it across the world. The developers of the game said that they had been informed that the game had been taken down due to the presence of ’content that is illegal in China’.

I don't think you beat the game if you just delete your progress. Come on china, try harder.

The main goal is not to find a solution. The main goal is try to make people not to think of it. Socialism 101.

You cant beat Plague with Kung Flu. But you can scare the fuck out of the world with the constant failures of your communist totalitarian regime. Yeah, you should be treated as a serious global power. Yeah, okay.

plague Inc is amazingly accurate. This Corona virus is spreading just like the game simulation. I bet many people playing this game are now picking China as their starting country. It is now a race against time to find a cure before the virus mutates because that is what happens in the game. I don't think we even know how the virus passes from person to person yet. They are keeping that detail from us. Obviously, it must be contagious at the very least. If the virus becomes tranferrable to birds there will be no containment

I'd comment on the idea of "some unidentified bureaucrat removing undesirable content", but it appears that NewsVoice has a moderator following me around removing my posts... No explanation beyond "you violated our terms". No indication of what the violation is. No opportunity to correct it. I'm thinking it's a member of the LGBTPQ+ Mafia™️ who works for NewsVoice because they are so thin skinned. How long until this comment disappears?
