Evil Genius 2: World Domination


Recommended Posts

For the people interested: https://www.gog.com/game/evil_genius 75% off till the end of the GOG summer sale (June 17th i believe). For me it was €2,29 when i bought it a few days back out of nostalgia. Running it right now with the reworked 1.1 patch by the community back then, since the official one had a few bugs that was never fixed.

Damn COVID-19...

Dear Evil Genius Community,

We hope this finds you and your loved ones safe and well.

Over the last five months or so, Rebellion has been working hard from the safety of our homes. As of now we’re only just beginning to welcome a handful of our staff back into our studios.

It’s been a challenging time. We tried to ensure there wouldn’t be a disturbance to our capacity and plans, but in such unexpected circumstances we’ve had to make some changes.

Today we’re announcing that Evil Genius 2: World Domination will launch in the first half of 2021.

We had originally planned for Evil Genius 2 to launch this year. However, the impact of COVID-19, transitioning from the studio to our homes and adapting to new ways of working all contributed to this difficult decision.

We want to deliver a sequel that will do justice to the franchise and be loved and played by the Evil Genius community for years to come, just like the original. And while we know many of you will be disappointed to wait a little longer, launching next year affords us the time to do precisely that.

One of the things we most prize about Rebellion is our independence, which allows us the freedom to do what’s right for our games and our staff. That’s what we’re doing for Evil Genius 2. We hope you understand our decision.

We’ll announce a final release date as soon as we can. Expect an update sooner rather than later.

Here on the Development Blog, normal service will resume in two weeks’ time. We’re going to be to showing you much, much more of Evil Genius 2 over the coming months, as well as sharing some information on the upcoming closed beta. We can’t wait to see what you think.

Thank you as ever for your support and your trust.

Chris and Jason Kingsley, Rebellion Co-Founders

First impressions so far: If you enjoyed the complexity of the original, this feels a little too dumbed down. The global map is especially disappointing as minions you send on missions never return and has a distinctly mobile time management game theme to it.  Graphical improvements here and there are as expected but I can't shake the feeling that I'd rather be playing the original.

I've only played a few hours so far, but enjoying it for sure.  I don't like how the minions don't return either, but then again a lot of times they a majority died out there anyways :)

      Hello,
      This video shows the Eclipse attacking a HammerHead in stealth mode.
      We can see the stop of the components to obtain the stealth mode.

      For those of us who go back far enough, we remember when CIG and CR promoted this game on the SC website back when the game was still in the kickstarter phase. Those people who backed the game also got a SC-based reward (eventually). Well, they've released their reveal trailer and release date, and it's using the same engine as SC. That said, the game's animations and graphics look nothing like what we have from SC, but definitely what we could've seen if CIG had decided to release SQ42 or SC before now.
      Check it out and feel free to discuss below.
