Vastari’s Tech Rants

The insane recommendations of a maniac.

Evil Genius

I just got back into Evil Genius. Can’t believe I ever stopped playing this. It’s a really good game and…well. If you’ve ever played one of those old dungeon building games, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

You start off with a mountain which you dig into in order to build your base. Once that’s done, you have to commit “Acts of Infamy” across the world to earn infamy anf money, allowing you to advance further, all the while defending your base from good guys. Soldiers are particularly annoying, right after the bond-esque Super Agents.

Your ultimate goal is to build a doomsday device and take over the world. It’s a bit repetitive, but I really enjoy it, especially making complicated trap mechanisms to fool unsuspecting agents. Usually they end up dead, so I usually have a freezer that’s roughly the size of all the rest of my base with about 100 racks to mount the bodies on (so my minions don;t get all rebelly).

Anyway, it’s a good game, and should be quite cheap, as it;s been out a while. So take a look for it and get it. I really like it.
