Evil Planet not closing after all!
Posted on May 30, 2007 by 02:11 by Ergophobia

In contradiction to what's been said before, we are now proud to announce that EvilPlanet will continue its existence after all!

After some trouble (and a LOT of work - thanks again Mark!) the whole site has been re-coded and is now again readily available at www.evilplanet.com.
Of course our forum and wiki will still be accessible as normal.

We thank you very much for your visit, be sure to leave a message!


Richard Joseph dies
Posted on March 5, 2007 by 04:44 by Jon

I'm incredibly sad to have to report the death of Richard Joseph, ex-audio director at Elixir and composer of many tracks on Evil Genius. He was a genuinely decent guy, very talented and a pleasure to know. I'm sure everyone who knew him will join with me in saying he will be much missed.

New Site Poll

So, please tell us: did you check out our latest project - the wiki - yet? We're making progress... slowly, but surely. If you think you've got something to add, feel free to! Also be sure to check the wiki section on the forums!

Interview with Demis
Posted on July 15, 2006 by 03:20 by Jon

Wow - it's been a while since I wrote a news title like that. But yup, it's true. Ever wondered what he's been up to for the past year? Well, the lovely guys at CVG.com have managed to snag him for an in-depth interview. Part 1 is here and Part 2 is right over here. Enjoy!

Sorry all...

The Evil Base Competion strikes again!
Posted on March 15, 2006 by 07:08 by Ergophobia

Yes, you read this right, another base design competition starts soon!

This time, we want to see your most twisted trap designs. You think your contraptions are nefarious enough to beat the others? Join us here in the third Base Design Competion on Evilplanet!


Elixer IP transfer confirmed!
Posted on March 3, 2006 by 02:14 by Ergophobia

At last, after half a year of just rumours, we can finally confirm that Rebellion has bought the Elixir IP, including Evil Genius! This could very well mean that a sequel to Evil Genius is not as unlikely as many of us might have thought!

A big thanks to Alex Thomson for sharing the good news with us, as can be read here.


We have a wiki!
Posted on February 25, 2006 by 13:25 by Jon

It might all fall apart, but no harm in giving it a go! It's right here and like all wikis it needs your help to get it going! It's hopefully going to be the best place for EG information - and who knows, if EG2 is announced, it might get really big!

So if you're up for helping, especially if you are decent at wiki coding, then join right in!


Merry Christmas to y'all!
Posted on December 24, 2005 by 07:10 by Ergophobia

Everyone at EvilPlanet wishes you a safe and happy Christmas, Hannukah, or whatever you may be celebrating!
Have a wonderful time, all of you!

...and that is an order!


Finally... another poll!
Posted on November 26, 2005 by 07:27 by Ergophobia

The first new poll in quite some time, this time dealing with something else than Evil Genius... well, kind of.

Please cast your vote and feel free to post your comments!

New German Forum
Posted on August 25, 2005 by 10:59 by Jon

A new German forum has opened up, offering the chance to talk about Evil Genius with other German-speaking evil do-ers. Thanks, Alcazar.

Forums moved!
Posted on August 5, 2005 by 15:19 by Jon

The forums have changed hosts to a much more powerful server, with many thanks to our hosting providor, forum member Quiky. However, it will take several weeks until the "evilgeniuschat" name can forward to the new hosting, so for now you can find our forums at http://www.n1nj4.com/ instead. Happy chatting!

Update: The major links on the site have been updated but there's simply too much of them. If you find a link not working, please switch "evilgeniuschat" for "n1nj4" in the URL. Thanks in advance for bearing with us.


New Poll - Please Vote!
Posted on July 23, 2005 by 07:51 by Ergophobia

We finally have a new poll, so please cast your votes!

For everyone's information, Republic Dawn: Chronicles of the Seven is a sequel to Republic: The Revolution, made by Elixir and released in 2003. Republic: Dawn has been in the making for some time now, and since Elixir has closed down the game has luckily been picked up by the other developer, Nicely Crafted.

For a little more information, check out this article.

Yeah, but I don't really see the point.
No, but I surely will!
No, and I don't suppose I will.
Huh? What IS a wiki?
