We all need love in our lives and villains are no different. That’s why Green Man Gaming Publishing and Lizard Hazard Games have teamed up to bring you a look at love with a distinctly villainous twist. Lovingly Evil is a dating sim with a difference, and it’s coming to PC later this Summer.
Lovingly Evil sees you create your very own villain as you attend The Villain Conference, an event devoted to evil doers the world over who want to just have a nice time talking about having horrible times. At the conference you’re there to find a partner, one who might help you in your own nefarious plans or even a villain you may fall in love with.
Or you can just decide to attend some talks, learn more about improving your villainous ways, and become the best villain you can be. It’s up to you.
The journey to romance starts with villain creation, you’ll have a huge amount of customisation options allowing you to make the baddie from your worst nightmares or a hot hunk of meat who’s hungry for love. Make a necromancer, a criminal mastermind, or an evil demi-god from the nether reaches of the universe. Lovingly Evil has hundreds of different options including body types, facial features, clothes, accessories, pets, and much more helping you to express your evil side in the way you see fit.
Once you’ve made your villainous alter-ego it’s time to head to The Villain Conference where you can meet others just like you and learn how to really improve your villainous plans. Attend talks, network, wander the food court, and when you’ve worked hard enough you can rip it up on the dancefloor at the villain conference’s very own nightclub.
While you prowl the corridors and events of The Villain Conference and as you talk to your fellow villains, be on the lookout as you may encounter something most unexpected. Love. Lovingly Evil comes with five different potential love interests letting you fall in love with the dastardly demon of your heart’s desire. Will Felix the Vampire put a stake of love in your heart or will you make a deal with Lucifer himself, the font of all evil?
As you explore your potential romantic partners you’ll play minigames with them, from flower arranging to grilling sausages (on hellfire, of course). You can win card-based debates and test your knowledge to build better relationships with your evil love interests. Lovingly Evil even lets you customise this, so if you want to take a step back from minigames and have a more narrative-focused experience, you can switch them off and just start sweet talking a villain right away.
It’s choice that’s at the heart of Lovingly Evil – well, choice and romancing villains. From customising your evil avatar, deciding which romantic partner to pursue, to choosing your path in the game’s branching storylines, it’s all up to you. Lovingly Evil lets you take the reigns of your own villainous story, and your evil evil heart.
