Greetings Geniuses,

Before we end what has been quite a year, we'd like to give you one more Developer Update for Evil Genius 2: World Domination.

Firstly, and most importantly, thank you all for your support! From release in March, through five DLC releases, two free pieces of tie-in DLC (thanks Valve!), and a whole bunch of patches, you've given us plenty of positive feedback as well as features to work on whilst we endeavoured to make Evil Genius 2 the best game it could be.

As you'll have seen, we've recently been spending some of our time on console versions, so new players have many more opportunities to express that world-conquering ambition they're all hiding.

For those who have been with us since we released on Steam, that work has improved game-pad support across the board, fixed a whole host of weird and wonderful bugs, as well as better optimised the game for those on lower-end PCs that might have been struggling. For more information on minimum specs, check out the pinned Frequently Asked Questions thread on our Steam forum.

But that's not all we've been working on, and obviously this is what you're really here for isn't it? We're close to finalising the last piece of our Season Pass content - the Oceans Campaign Pack - which we'll be releasing some time early next year once everyone returns from a well-deserved Christmas break. We can tell you now that this pack is a monster!

For a taste of just some of the content, we'll be giving you a new Lair environment (usable by any genius), a new fifth Genius to select (with their own story campaign and doomsday device to build), lots of new furniture, some more loot, new agents, and a few other surprises too. We've learned a lot from this year, and we're bringing it all to bear to make this the best campaign yet.

We hope this small tease will keep your appetites whetted until our Community team can start giving you more of an in-depth look at each of those features, but until then keep your feedback coming and enjoy your festivities.

Wishing you a very mischievous Christmas,

The Evil Genius 2 Development Team
