Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games) announced today
that the PC Strategy / Simulation game Evil Genius will be shown behind closed
doors at the 2003 Electronic Entertainment Expo held at the Los Angeles
Convention Center, May 14-16. Evil Genius is being developed by London-based
Elixir Studios, and is scheduled for a Q3 2004 release.
This unique Strategy / Simulation game is a tongue-in-cheek take on popular
1960s spy franchises such as Austin Powers, James Bond and Our Man Flint, but
with a twist: Evil Genius offers the player the chance to play as a villain
himself and control a secret island base complete with nefarious henchmen, loyal
minions and a wide collection of gadgets, gizmos and traps.
