Antidote is inspired by science and loosely follows real-world biology. It depicts the constant struggle between the human body and invading microbes. The game takes place on a petri dish in a laboratory, so the player can directly observe and affect the events. All 13 defensive units are actual white blood cells and all foes, including the coronavirus, have been taken from real-world diseases. While behaviors have been altered to facilitate better gameplay, their names are correct and the Antidote Encyclopedia contains real-world descriptions of both friends and foes.
Player’s task is to defeat waves of hostile pathogens and collect research points. These enable the player to unlock new and better vaccines, enabling the player to beat even the most difficult levels. Vaccines in Antidote COVID-19 work just like in real life, teaching the immune system to respond to the attacking pathogen without triggering the associated disease. This grants the patient immunity, as if the patient had already recovered from it. It is a worthy goal, both in-game and in life.
If the players want to know how some game element works in real life, all they have to do is look it up in the Encyclopedia. Besides the cells and pathogens, it contains information on medical procedures, biological processes and the history of medical science. While the game aims to be fun and cuts corners in the interests of smooth gameplay, the Encyclopedia texts have been vetted by experts. Furthermore, knowing the properties of foes can give the player an advantage in strategy.
Antidote COVID-19 is free to play. Science belongs to everyone and the development team wishes to spread the joy of discovery. So download Antidote COVID-19 today, plan a cunning tower defense strategy, defeat pathogen threats, browse the encyclopedia and learn about the immune system and vaccines as you go!
