Gameplay and Accessibility Features
There’s tonnes to see and do in Lovingly Evil, with multiple branching storylines with different diabolical love interests to pursue, no two games are the same. The setting is this; you’re a villain and you’ve just arrived at The Villain Conference. You get your badge, guide, and phone, and off you go to mingle and meet the finest evil doers in all the land, for chat, networking…and maybe more.
Gameplay in Lovingly Evil sees you visiting various areas of the convention centre, chatting and networking with the villains populating it, and playing several minigames that help you navigate the sea of evil love. For example, get into an argument and you can play a card game themed around making compelling statements. Winning or losing these minigames all provide different outcomes, so don’t be afraid to dive right in and experiment.
The minigames are also optional, the in-game settings menu lets you customise the game as you see fit. If you find you’re unable to compete correctly at flower arrangement or quizzes aren’t your thing, you can simply turn them off. Developers Lizard Hazard Games have made accessibility the name of the game, with a wide variety of options available to make sure you feel at home in your evil avatar.
That extends to your character. When you start a game of Lovingly Evil, you’ll be asked to choose your appearance for your villain. Any body type can be combined with any facial hair, eye arrangement, and skin tone. Even more you can even choose your villain’s pronouns and their modus operandi for their evil acts. Choice is at the heart of Lovingly Evil, and that extends across the settings, the character creation, and how you play (and replay) the game.
