A walkthrough on how to beat the Fake News scenario on Mega Brutal difficulty.
Starting the Game
Welcome to the guide! I hope it works well for you.
First, choose a starting country for your fake news. China, India, and the USA have been proven to work with this guide, but it is likely other countries would work as well.
Next, create your manifesto. It doesn’t matter what you choose for this, as it is not that important to the gameplay.
When evolving your news, make sure not to hold onto DNA for longer than necessary to get the next trait. Our goal here is to try to balance virality and plausibility; community is not that important.
Evolve the following traits in order:
- Word of Mouth
- Bot Network 1
- Out of Context
- Bot Network 2
- Hire Fake Experts
- Viral Chat Messages
- Media Outreach
- Fabricate Data
- TV Targeting
- Talk Show
- Onboard Politician
- Onboard Political Party
- Exploit Institutions
If fact-checking is rapidly starting to become completed, and about 40% of the world is informed at this point, then skip to the next section. If not, continue below with:
- Buy a TV Network
- Buy a Newspaper
- Print Targeting
Adaptability and Winning
Now the cure should progressing and a large percentage of the world will be informed. As long as the fact-checking doesn’t get completed, it won’t matter how far it gets because it will reset at the end of the game to net us all three biohazards. To slow the cure and win the game, evolve:
- Tweet Mean Things
- If you didn’t have to skip the end of the previous section, also evolve Focus on Irrelevant Details and Claim Witch Hunt
- Accusation of Bias
- Discredit Experts
- Discredit Informational Sources
At this point, it should be getting to close to having half the world become informed. Continue with:
- Expand Victim List
- Defamation Lawsuits
- Media Hit Piece
The cure should now be at around 50% or higher. Purchase:
- Expand Blame List
- Hack Experts
- Misinformation Merge
- Misinformation Reshuffle
That should’ve been the final push needed to get 50% of the world deceived. Once you hit that mark, the misinformation will spread rapidly and the cure progress will be almost completely reset.
Congratulations! You just beat the Fake News Scenario on Mega Brutal with 3 biohazards.
