Let's Play Evil Genius! It's Throwback Thursday, where we head back into the past and do a complete playthrough of a classic simulation/management game. In Episode One we begin work on our underground lair... providing beds for the troops and a strongroom for our bullion. Mwahahahaaaa!
Evil Genius is a single player real-time strategy and simulation video game developed by Elixir Studios and published by Sierra Entertainment, released on September 28, 2004. The game is inspired by the spy thriller genre (notably the James Bond film series), and is set in an alternative 1960s–70s era. Players act as a villainous force attempting to achieve global domination whilst fending off the forces of justice; to this end the gameplay is split between management of a base and the completion of "acts of infamy" in the rest of the world. The game has stylish, cartoon-like visuals and contains a great deal of tongue-in-cheek humour, particularly playing to clichés of the spy genre.
