There’s something about managing to hit the market when the timing is right, managing to capture the energy of current events. Obviously in the midst of a global pandemic a game involving the high-level management of resources to try to control and hopefully stop it could be capable of garnering interest. In theory if you’re willing to spend the time to grasp the intricacies of Virus’s strategy and overcome the pretty clumsy interface issues, perhaps it could have some morbid appeal of some kind. That said, for the most part you’re so separated from what’s happening and its consequences, on top of understanding all of the game’s rules and quirks, that it’s just not a very captivating experience.
