Educator Resources for You Make Me Sick
In You Make Me Sick, players take on the role of a pathogen. They'll custom-design a disease and then attempt to infiltrate a variety of unique target hosts. As players progress through the game, they must improve their pathogen's infectious properties in order to infect hosts that have progressively stronger defenses (like antibiotics and stellar hygiene). This game is a great way to help teach the anatomy and function of bacteria and viruses, and to demonstrate how such pathogens are spread.
