EVOLUTION: THE VIDEO GAME Launches With A Giveaway To Win The Board Game

Evolution is an award-winning board game first published by North Star Games in 2014. Built around the concept of natural selection, Evolution pits players against each other in a race for survival. You’ll begin with a basic species and layer attribute over attribute in a bid to compete for scarce resources. Perhaps your species will evolve a long neck, giving you advantageous access to the food supply. Or maybe you’ll evolve into a carnivore and gain resources by attacking your opponent’s creatures directly. It’s possible to hunt an opponent’s species into extinction, but not if they evolve hard shells or other deterrents!

Ultimately, Evolution is a game that has a broad appeal – it’s great for families, great for strategically-minded gamers, and fantastic for players no matter where they fall along the “Eurogame-Ameritrash” spectrumUnlike collectible card games, Evolution is not dependent on new cards to make each game different. There are so many possible combinations that it’s almost impossible to see the same exact species twice. You’ve got to react to each game differently, rather than rely on previously developed strategies.

The big news is that the long-awaited video game implementation is now available! Evolution: The Video Game aims to capture all the features of the board game, with a few new twists of its own. North Star has added A.I bosses and a campaign mode in addition to the sorts of animations and art you’d expect to see on your computer or tablet. A guided tutorial will teach you the basics while an online matchmaking system will pair you against opponents capable of providing an appropriate strategy.
