Outbreak is a powerful game that can simulate many stories with many variations. Here's how you might play the avian flu (H5N1):

This morning, you get a phone call that tells you that the flu virus H5N1 may be transferred from human to human, and that it poses a threat to the entire world. You have been recruited to a special task force to control the virus and save the world.

You and your mentor must discover everything you can about this virus, and save as many lives as you can around the world. Who do you vaccinate? What do you tell the world? Do you tell people to stay in their cities—or in their homes?

To see the game we envision, check out our screenshots.
