Your mission is to build an elite disease disinformation team, coordinate with Communist dictators, push as many people as possible into panic, effectively label your class enemies as racists, fascists, and homophobes, and permanently weaken America by overwhelming its social, medical, psychological and physical infrastructure before capitalism kills us all.
The first player to implement International Socialism wins.
That’s the scenario in Nintendo’s new massive online, turn-based, multiplayer strategy game called “DemPanic” that everyone* can play for free during the worldwide coronavirus lockdown.

But one man — the President of the United States — can still disrupt your plans by falsely telling the world that the People’s Republic of Wuhan caused the pandemic by allowing the bodily fluids of living, dead, and dying animals — and all the bacteria, viruses and parasites they carry — to come into direct contact with millions of human shoppers.
Don’t let him win. Find the cure by nationalizing supply chains, implementing central planning, invoking martial law, stoking victimhood and grievance culture, and redistributing all wealth to the poor. Spare no expense. Win the war on capitalism.
