MachiaVillain has a decent amount going for it, there's little doubt there. The concept is fun and one that isn't explored enough, with the added twist of a Cabin in the Woods vibe only helping matters. Once you get into it, the gameplay is engaging, particularly building. It does turns into a bit of a slog as you advance through the ranks though. A lot is also buried beneath the large amount of micromanagement.
I was excited to design my murder mansion full of secret trap doors. I love zombies and vampires and wanted to do right by my minions. It was the opaque rules that kept me at arm’s length. The ideas in this game are enough to make me want to tolerate a lot, but not this much. Ultimately, MachiaVillain needs a lot of cleaning up, explanations and balance fixes. Then maybe we can all come together to have a bloody good time.
This is the sort of game that can easily be played for hours on end and feel like only minutes have passed. It’s especially fun as a means to act out as a dastardly character with whimsical aspects thrown in. If the developer makes some tweaks and introduces a more robust tutorial or at least integrate the external wiki in-game then it’ll prove an even better experience. All in all, MachiaVillain takes a bit of dedication to get into, but it’s worth the effort.
