MASHED_BEAUTATO HERE with another strategic guide on how to most efficiently ace the hottest new game on the market. Surviving Covid is the latest release from Apocalypse Studios – it’s a simulated survival game where you’re tasked with surviving a pandemic plaguing the planet. The shiny platinum trophy will take you between a couple of months to several years to obtain, depending on your playstyle. If you’ve played Apocalypse’s previous titles, Bubonic Rising and H1N1 1918, then you’ll have a general idea of what to expect from this game. The contemporary setting offers a new set of challenges that result in a fresh take on the pandemic genre. The year is 2020, and you’re in a world that’s already struggling with political negligence, a climate crisis and an impending economic recession. Your aim is to survive the Covid pandemic while leaving as small a negative footprint as possible. Creating your character can take anywhere from a few minutes to several weeks; it’s up to you how long you want to spend in the pre-Covid world. Character creation also features a quick-start option with three default character builds if you wish to jump straight into gameplay:

The Extremist: The Extremist build greatly decreases your likelihood of catching the virus. If you’re not going for the platinum trophy and just want to experience the game, this is your best bet. With this playstyle, your character will be prompted to avoid all risks, which can quickly net you the Hermit trophy. Of course, once you have this trophy, it becomes harder to change your tactics, as you’ll be inclined to remain alone and hidden from the world to stay safe. Your biggest danger as this character is decreased mental health, which you’ll have a higher chance of developing for each day you continue your shut-away lifestyle.

Non-fictionOn free-dress days, I wore my sister’s dance tights to school because they made me feel like I was a real wrestler. I would’ve worn my Speedos if my mum let me. Other kids stared at me and asked ‘What are you wearing?’ and I’d tell them that this was my wrestling gear.
