Evil Genius originally released in 2004 and allows players to create an evil lair and work on an ultimate doomsday device that can be used to achieve world domination as one of three characters. Players can also create traps and interrogation devices for their lair to deal with any government agents that may wander in.
A sequel to the game, titled Evil Genius 2: World Domination, is scheduled to release later this year.
