HomeLAN also chats with Elixir Studios' Peter Gilbert about Evil Genius, their upcoming super spy villian strategy game:

    HomeLAN - How does the player actually begin his rise to being a super villain?

    Peter Gilbert - The player arrives at the "deserted island of unknown location" with a lorry load of cash, a few faithful minions and a henchman or two. Building an efficient and well camouflaged base is one of the first things a player will do. Once the basics are laid out, players will start training up minions and henchmen, get some technicians working in the research lab, and organise a few missions to cause mayhem around the world. Obviously as soon as your minions and henchmen start arriving back with stolen booty from around the world the forces of justice will not be far behind. Good base defence is very important.
