Plague Inc Community Winners - Write Your Own Plague Inc. News Headline!
A few weeks ago we launched a competition to have your very own news headline featured in Plague Inc. and Plague Inc: Evolved. Today we can finally announce the winners...

We were absolutely blown away by the response - both the volume and the quality of the answers. We had a colossal 479 entries overall and it was really, really fun to go through them all here - a great effort from everybody on this forum, and over on our Steam forum.

With all that being said, choosing a single winner ended up being extremely difficult... Therefore we are very happy to announce that we have actually chosen SIX winners who will have their headlines featured in the game!

The winners are...
  • Grey-X - Ndemic Forum - Missing woman 'entered police box with strange man'
  • Professor Bacon - Ndemic Forum - Gangnam Style rewritten as major Broadway musical
  • YellowLion - Ndemic Forum - Jogger smiles at camera, becomes popular
  • Hollow - Ndemic Forum - Connection issues disrupt virtual reality wedding
  • Pagan - Steam Forum - Mobile game developer trademarks the word 'The'
  • The Punisher - Steam Forum - Miami police establish hotline to find killer

Congratulations to you all, and thank you to everyone for entering. Watch out for their headlines in our next update which is coming really soon.

And remember - there is still an extra special prize to be awarded if any of these headlines make it onto the front page of Reddit Tongue

P.S. - as mentioned previously, a few of these headlines have had very minor tweaks in order to perfectly fit into the game

Yay! Though I'm surprised by which one of mine was chosen (personally I thought the Game of Thrones reference was better Tongue)

Congrats to all the other winners as well!

Thank you for choosing my headline! Big Grin I think mine and Hollow's news entry got switched.

BTW, I love The Punisher's Hotline Miami reference Big Grin
