If you're not aware of Plague Inc., the game simulates the outbreak of a pandemic disease, with Vaughan saying that it is as "scientifically plausible" as possible. The CDC will invite him in so he could talk and hopefully reach a wider audience with a more casual approach, games. He has said: "They're also very keen on how games like Plague Inc. can be used to inform the public about health issues and raise public awareness of these issues."
