Evil Genius™ Goes Gold!
Gamers Worldwide Can Discover their Dark Side on September 28th
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 18, 2004) – Vivendi Universal Games announced today that the PC strategy/simulation game Evil Genius has gone gold and will ship to retail stores worldwide on September 28th. A trial version of the game will be released on the Internet on Monday, August 30th.

In Evil Genius gamers assume the role of a wicked mastermind bent on achieving global domination through the construction of the ultimate doomsday device. A tongue-in-cheek take on the 60's spy thriller genre, Evil Genius offers the chance to be the villain and control a secret island fortress complete with powerful (and strangely dressed) henchmen, mindlessly loyal minions and a wide range of hilarious gizmos.
All the everyday tasks of the megalomaniac are available to experience as players build a secret base, train minions, gain infamy and notoriety by completing daring missions, toy with the forces of justice by setting clever traps, torture captives with ingenious devices, and develop evil super weapons to complete a nefarious master plan.
