I had a nice long beautifully written post singing the praises of this game, and then firefox decided to crash on me because I dared to preview my post first, so here's the abridged version.
If you liked Evil Genius or Dungeon keeper, you'll probably like this. You get to have an evil tower, evil minions, cast evil spells, and did I mention the evil? You start with your tower ruined, your minions scattered, and work your way up from there. The repairs on my tower are all done, and so without further ado I invite you to a visual tour of my evil tower in its present state.
My evil throne room. Note the newly installed banners, newly captured servant girls, and newly laid-out jester sprawled on the floor. He makes a very satisfying sound when you kick him, and gives you ample provocation to do so. This time he called me Overlard.
My evil riches. I probably need to work on the evil riches.
My evil inner sanctum, complete with rotating runes around a pedestal holding a miniature model of my tower. Because you need one of those.
My evil forge where I forge... evil. You do so by using minion's life-force to upgrade your weapons. I assume there are multiple metal types, but steel is all I have access to right now. Incidentally this is what happened when I used 100 minions to upgrade my helmet:
Yes, you get to see all 100 of them gleefully throw themselves into the molten soup.
More praises of this game to go here when I'm less tired of typing.
Anyone else pick this up yet?
