    Evil Genius was shit though. It belongs on the same trash heap as Not-Dungeon-Keeper titles like Impire and Dungeons.

    I played it when I was a not-so-wee lad and thought it was pretty alright. A bit annoying in the late game but funny and engaging enough.

    EG was one of those games that defined my childhood. Sentiment aside, I also beat DK 2, in the same age period, and could say they are of comparable quality. I always preferred EG for number of reasons, biggest one being the pervasive world. That kinda made it stand out even more than DK does from the rest of strategy games.

    Yeah, I also liked it, but that was quite a while after it came out.

    Of all the clones, it might be the best. Though I really liked Dungeons 2 (not really a clone, I'd call it heavily inspired) and WftO (now THAT was a clone) as well.
    If they get the humor right and the game isn't too easy, it should be fine.

    Of course, I hope they include all the right amounts of geometrical forms.

    EG1's problems could be solved with some love from devs. Game could be really shine with some effort put into its underwheling aspects.
    EG had one of the best musics, still have main theme in playlists.

    I want translation of this https://vndb.org/v1086
    The strategy part is sound.
    The story is cuckoo.

    And it's NOT Dungeon Keeper copy.

    Extremely underrated game though not without faults. Hope they do it some justice.

    This random game getting a sequel begs the question, though, with all the superhero craze going around where the flying fuck is Freedom Force?

    As long as they reduce micromanagement hell and make traps functional game will be ok.

    Exactly. These guys spend like 5+ years on Republic the Revolution, without knowing what they were doing.

    Then they made Evil Genius which was a very decent game, and ran off immediately, apparently while they had just made somey money. Today they could stay and make the game better but that was before Steam really took off.

    My dream was to have a separate layer for money making in EG1. To have companies flushing funds to you, justice agents infiltrating your business. To build a corporation that will fund your evil deeds, instead of sending minions just to steal funds.

    Sending minions to steal funds was a noob way of doing things that just resulted in dead minions you had to replace at great expense in money and time, nearly totally erasing any benefit you gained from doing it in the first place. There were two serious ways to get money: Either to farm the tutorial, by collecting all the money you'd need at the very first tutorial where you're told to collect money in this manner, but before they've turned on the ability for your minions to DIE doing it, and just leave them to do their thing until you have ONE MILLION DOLLARS, or, to farm the combo bonii from trap payouts where you get paid money for trapping agents in particularly devious trap combos, like THE TRAP THAT NEVER ENDS IT JUST GOES ON AND ON MY FRIENDS. As a side benefit, there is a finite number of enemy agents that can be invading you at any time, so if all of them are stuck in an endless blender, no more can be sent until the ones presently on the island are killed, which won't happen, because the trap is endless and nonlethal: There is no escape from the endless torture, not even the sweet embrace of death.

    Yeah man I couldn't play DK after EG. I hated how in DK you need to build a totally new base every 10 minutes. In EG you get to just focus on building up two massive bases throughout the game.

    That's because you were building them wrong. You were building casinos in them so people could play the machines. You should have built it in the Russian way: In Soviet Russia, machine plays YOU! Build the thing as a simply a trap hotel where they check in and they don't check out.

    I really liked the whole trap system in Evil Genius, you could build some crazy corridors
