Evolution: The Video Game is launching on February 12th, 2019, per Evin Hodges, Marketing/PR Manager of North Star Games’ Digital Studios. It will be available on Steam, iOS, and Android. The official trailer can be found here.
Evolution: The Video Game is based on an award-winning tabletop board game where 2–6 players adapt species in a dynamic ecosystem with starving predators and limited resources. Various Traits will offer benefits like protection, while others will get the player food that others cannot obtain.
The game was originally due out in 2018 but was delayed into 2019, because “…unexpected complications with the multiplayer caused some ‘major hurdles’ in development.”, according to PC Gamer.
See below for a live demo of the tutorial and explanation from Hodges of the game’s mechanics, look, and feel at PAX Unplugged 2018.
The game was originally crowdfunded in 2017 via a Kickstarter campaign.
