“You Make Me Sick” game review1040LPosted on July 18, 2011 | 1 Comment“You Make Me Sick” is the kind of game I wish I had known about when I was taking biology mysophomore year of high school. It’s fun, exciting and educational — a triple threat!“You Make Me Sick,” from Filament Games, teaches you about bacteria and viruses and how they arespread. Unlike most games that use this concept (and you strive to not get your host infected), the goalof this game is to get your host severely sick! The sicker your host is, the better your score. If it isn’talready obvious, this is the most exhilarating aspect of the game!When you begin the game, you are given a host and a small bio with blurbs about their health, eatingand normal everyday habits. You may get a male who is a slob, eats everything and wears a hygienicmask or a female who is healthy, unorganized and has not had any vaccinations. From these types ofhosts, your challenge is to customize a virus or bacteria that will infect your host despite their strengthsand in spite of their weaknesses.Choosing either virus or bacteria stems many other options that will help you spread your disease. Ontop of creating your own unique virus or bacteria, you get the ability to personalize your experience bynaming your virus!From this point, you are taken to the host’s house, where you are to find the most ideal spot to infectthem. If you have thought it through well enough, without much effort or time, your host will becomeinfected. Depending on what kind of virus or bacteria you created, you will face a series of obstacles thatdetermine your final score.When you complete the game you will receive your very own certificate of host infection. If you are likeme and proud of successfully infecting someone, you can print it out and post it on your wall to show allyour friends. Hopefully, they will not with respond with “You make me sick!” — Heidi Abdulhttp://gatorgamers.wordpress.com/2011/07/18/you-make-me-sick/
