In Evil Genius, players take on the role of a new supervillain who is looking to make a name for themselves in the world of evil. Set in the 1960s, the game’s storyline focuses on you as the leader of a secret criminal organization known as “The Brotherhood of Nefarious Genius” (B.O.N.G). Your ultimate goal?

But beware, as you’ll also need to defend your lair from attacks by enemy agents and various superheroes, who are determined to put a stop to your evil deeds.
