About Evil Genius

About this game

Developed by Elixir Studios and published by Rebellion.

In Evil Genius, you'll find out what it's like to be the mastermind with the chaotic goal of ruling the world! You'll experience the everyday tasks of a villain, such as building an ultra-secret base to developing the most wicked and spectacular super-weapons!

Choose Your Character

There are three notorious Evil Genius characters to choose from. Their faces will become your icon, and they'll represent you throughout your quest for world domination! 

Secret Weapon

You can't go on a journey to conquer the world without an amazing weapon first! So, you'll need to first get your hands on the ultimate doomsday device.

Customise Your Lair

No one can call themselves a villain if they don't have an awesome super-secret lair first! And you can make yours incredibly awesome thanks to the over 300 items available: from kung fu academies to labs!

Question Your Enemies

You'll have plenty of ingenious traps and scary interrogation devices to use against the obnoxious, goodie-two-shoes clowns who called themselves government agents!

No Genius Without Knowledge

Amass an army of faithful minions who you can train to become a proficient mini-army. From experimental research programs to how to properly use heavy weapons and international sabotage!

You'll Need Help

Aside from your army of loyal followers, you'll want some henchmen at your disposal to keep your base safe, take out unwanted agents, and go out there to put themselves in danger in order to grow your power and notoriety!
