Back to games people actually care about:

Evil Genius 2 will have Brian Blessed as the voice actor for Red Ivan. According to Rebellion, this means the game is also an official sequel to Flash Gordon.

Oh no. But what about its 10 years plan? 

It may have been misunderstood. Similar to how the German interior ministry said that people misunderstood the Polizei 2020 plan (to modernize police). 2020 was not when it was supposed to be realized, but the planning horizon.

So an Anthem 10 year plan could have meant that latest after 10 years, they would have a plan. They came up with a plan much faster: binning the project.

I have mixed feelings re: Evil Genius 2.  The only reason I picked up the original was because it was described as being similar to Dungeon Keeper. I didn't really find it to feel all that much like DK but it was kind of fun.  Never finished it tho.  I largely only remember a bug I discovered with the treasure/gold stockpile room/tiles, where if I kept deleting and rebuilding/enlarging them the gold stacks would multiply. Don't remember exactly, it was something like that. So eventually I had massive sized treasure rooms and was rich.   :lol:

Anyway, I definitely want to try the sequel out of curiosity but I wasn't a giant superfan.

They added multiple floors to the secret lair but took out the mid-campaign island change. They say it wasn't fun to have to abandon your base and build a new one from scrap. They aren't wrong. Though the island change did allow for a fresh start knowing what one had done wrong with the first base.

They also mentioned a sandbox mode, without story progression.

A lot of changes sound good though. More importantly, unlike those terrible Dungeons 1-3 and the Startopia knock off, the Evil Genius 2 devs seem to know the original game and be making an actual sequel, not just nick the name to get customers, then get offended when the interested players ask how similar the game will be to the namesake.

Sounds like the type of game I'd love to play co-op. Alas. Then again Parkitect got it as an update, so hopefully it's well received enough to make co-op builders increasingly more of a thing.
