The original Evil Genius was released in 2004. It was inspired by the Dungeon Keeper series as players participate in this epic fight on the side of evil. Players are able to experience this 1960’s spy fiction setting as one of three evil masterminds with their own individual skills. It allows players to build up their lair and defend it against the forces of justice. Those forces of justice are represented as one of five unique organizations. These organization protect specific parts of the world and send out various agents to uncover the secrets of players’ island base. These agents can be defeated in a variety of ways, however the biggest threats are the super agents. They are parodies of the hero archetypes from movies of the era. These five agents cannot be killed unless very specific conditions are met. This hilarious game’s final goal is to take over the world. Players will be able to succeed by performing acts of infamy in the wider world, researching evil technologies and building up their base to create the “super weapon”. The original Evil Genius is available on Steam.
