I hope everyone gets the Plague this winter!

Plague - the game, that is! It's not easy getting people excited about the Plague, so I thought I would start now; maybe by the time it comes out in Nov/Dec, folks will want to give the Plague to all their loved ones for the Holidays! You can watch my silly video here:http://kck.st/zXuoCd

You play as a poor, unfortunate, disease-ridden peasant, spreading the Plague to each level's medieval inhabitants. You try to create a chain reaction of coughing and death - but in a fun way!

Plague starts in the countryside, and continues into more and more densely populated levels.

Will your carrier cough at just the right time to infect that innkeeper or cook? Will that newly-infected cook spread the Plague to his server, and then on to their customers?
Leveling up your carrier's stats will make you more potent and more successful-- Cough Spray Radius, Life Expectancy, Potency, etc.-- so when you replay a level you can try to infect a few more.
Here's an early animation test:
I'm only a month into development, but I'll post updates every month as I create the Plague. Stay tuned!

Your Kick Starter link indicates the Plague will be spreading to the iPad as well, which is good news to us iPad owners.

Yes, definitely! I am an iPadder(?) but the Plague will be on both iPads and iPhones.

Thanks! Who doesn't love a game that has something called a 'Cough Radius'?

LOL... The concept has definitely piqued my interest. Will surely follow this title. Very unique, very interesting. And from what has been revealed, looks good too.
