The Evil Genius Store

Created by Evil Genius Games

The Evil Genius store carries our flagship product - Everyday Heroes TTRPG - based on d20 Modern, built on 5e. It also pre-sells our first 8 Cinematic Adventures - Pacific Rim, Kong: Skull Island, Highlander, Escape from New York, Total Recall, Rambo, Universal Soldier, and The Crow. We currently don't have shipping prices entered for physical rewards in BackerKit. We plan to wait until closer to fulfillment to enter & charge you for the physical items on your survey to get the most accurate/fair fulfillment prices. We will update backers after entering those shipping prices before we charge you in BackerKit.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

February Shipping Updates: We're at the end
13 days ago – Mon, Feb 19, 2024 at 01:00:30 PM

Hello Evil Backers,

Thank you again for your support. What a feat to deliver 10 products in a such a short period of time. I'm really glad to hear how much you enjoy these games. We couldn't have gotten this far without you. Here are a few updates for your February!

Shipping Update

We're awfully close to having this game into everyone's hot little hands. Here is a quick update by region:

  • North and South America (Excluding Canada) - Everything should be shipped. If you don't have it, check back in with us at [email protected].
  • Canada - We had to send replacement product to our distributor (Bliss) on Feb 12. They have confirmed receipt of the product and they expect to send them out this week. 
  • (Australia/Asia)  The last orders this region were shipped by Let’s Play Games on Feb 3. You should now all have received your product. If not, please check back in with us at [email protected].
  • The last UK shipment (Spiral Galaxy) was scheduled for yesterday. If you don't have it already, it should be there soon.

Roll20 Update

We've been working with the folks at Roll20 to fix the remaining issues with the implementation. If successful, our goal is to continue to support the core system so that all of you Roll20 (this includes me) fans can continue to enjoy the game on their VTT.

Once this is done, we'll turn back to the Cinematic Adventures and see which ones we think we can launch as well. The key challenge, I've learned, is that drag and drop won't be automated, making it a poor user experience. 

Once this is cleared up, we can begin processing refunds or Foundry credits for any Roll20 CAs we don't launch. 

Thanks for your patience!

January Shipping Updates - The Vault Just Released from Customs, Goodbye Roll20, Hello Foundry
about 2 months ago – Thu, Jan 04, 2024 at 08:24:42 PM

Hey everyone!

Happy New Year everyone. Here is January's update. 

Shipping Update

Quick update on the final leg of our Kickstarter campaign! We are very near the finish line and are excited for you to have all of our products in your hands.

The final product we need to finish the Kickstarter is the physical version of The Vault. This is en route to our various warehouses worldwide as we speak.

Now, for what you are here for: When will your products ship?

North and South America (excluding Canada):  Due to congestion delays from holiday shipping traffic the Vault is landing later than we anticipated. The shipment was stuck in Detroit for several days for an examination, which was just completed today. We expect this to finally be delivered to our US warehouse tomorrow (Friday 1/5). With the Vault arriving at our warehouse tomorrow we expect to begin filling backer orders starting on Wednesday 1/10!

Canada: Yours will take a bit longer. Once the Vault arrives at our main warehouse we will ship yours to our partner in Canada, who in turn will ship to you. This is how we are able to keep the shipping costs lower. We will let you know when we have a more clear date, but we are likely a couple of weeks out from our Canadian partner shipping to you.

Rest of World: We're expecting your copies of the Vault will land to our international warehouses over the next couple of days. We are hoping to ship your orders starting late next week.

These timelines apply to The Vault and to anything else you backed in our first Kickstarter Campaign. If you opted for single-wave shipping and purchased The Vault, all of your items will ship in this batch.

Thanks for your patience during this final leg of our campaign. Unfortunately, we cannot control US Customs. The Vault is well worth the wait!

Virtual Tabletops

As part of the Kickstarter campaign, we sold Roll20 versions of our Cinematic Adventures. We were excited about releasing these VTT extensions along with our official partner - Roll20 - who promised to do the conversion. However, as many of you experienced, the Roll20 implementation of Everyday Heroes did not meet expectations. Because of this, we paused the development of future Cinematic Adventures on Roll20 beyond the two we released (The Crow and Escape From New York). 

On the other hand, everyone has been extremely happy with the Foundry implementation. The implementation (completed by Jeff Hitchcock) has met our standards of quality and demonstrates the kind of VTT experience we want all of you to have. 

Therefore we are going to exchange your purchased Roll20 products with Foundry products instead. Anyone who bought both the Roll20 and Foundry products will receive store credit for those Foundry purchases. If you're a die-hard Roll20 fan like I was, I recommend trying Foundry. Here is the release schedule for the Foundry products:

  • Escape From New York - released
  • The Crow - released
  • Kong Skull Island - released
  • Pacific Rim - January 2024
  • Total Recall  - February 2024
  • Highlander - March 2024
  • Rambo - April 2024
  • Universal Soldier - May 2024

We'll work over the next 30 days to get these products out to everyone.

December Shipping Updates - Americas Shipping Now! ROW Shipping Soon! We're Almost Done!!!
3 months ago – Tue, Dec 05, 2023 at 01:44:33 PM

Hello Evil Backers,

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is recovering from PAX Unplugged! We wanted to give you a quick update on the status of the final waves for the Kickstarter!

Wave 4: Rambo and Universal Soldier

Rambo and Universal Soldier are shipping as we speak to North and South American backers. These were printed in the USA, so they are going out to this group of multi-wave backers a little earlier. We expect our international warehouses to receive these in the next two weeks when all other multi-wave backers will have their copies shipped.

Expected Delivery Dates

  • North and South America - Shipping Now!!!
  • Rest of World - Beginning the Week of December 18th

Wave 5: The Vault (And Single-Wave Backer Orders)

The Vault is in transit to various warehouses around the world. This is the last item we need to complete the Kickstarter! We expect it to be delivered to our US warehouse around December 18th. This should mean shipping to North and South American backers later that week. It will arrive at our international warehouses shortly, and I hope to start shipping those orders just after Christmas. With this, we will be shipping to all of our single-wave backers and bringing the Kickstarter campaign to a close! We are in the home stretch.

Expected Delivery Dates

  • North and South America - Beginning the Week of December 18th
  • Rest of World  - Beginning the Week of December 26th

Reboots, Reboots Reboots...

It's exciting to see many of our properties are soon to be rebooted. 

The Crow - Starring Bill Skaarsgard - Releasing Summer 2024

Highlander - Starring Henry Cavill - Releasing TBD

Escape from New York - Starring Wyatt Russell - Releasing TBD

Which one are you more excited about?

In Conclusion

We appreciate your continued support. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on these as your orders arrive! If you still have questions, please email customer support at [email protected].

Look for the next substantial update on or around December 18th.

Shipping Update - October, Rambo, Universal Soldier, & The Vault Shipping Soon!
4 months ago – Tue, Oct 31, 2023 at 03:43:59 PM

Happy Halloween, Evil Backers!

We hope you all had a good weekend celebrating, and if you’re planning on celebrating today, please remember to trick and/or treat responsibly! As anticipated, we have a shipping update for you to let you know where your games are and when you can expect to receive them. Please read further for more info on your orders!

Rambo and Universal Soldier Physical Books Shipping Soon!

Items Discussed:

  • Rambo Cinematic Adventure (Physical)
     
  • Universal Soldier Cinematic Adventure (Physical)
     

The Rambo and Universal Soldier books are currently on the way! All the books are on their way to their various warehouses and will be distributed to you all soon after they arrive. Our current schedule is as follows (keep in mind these are just estimates, and we’ll update you again if anything changes):

North and South America (also servicing the “Rest of World” region) - These books will be the first that go out to backers, and they’ll start shipping early next month! We have not been given an exact date yet, but please look out for shipment notifications in the coming weeks. This includes Canada as well.

Europe - These books will be the second group of books to go out, following shortly behind the North and South America books. Since those will be shipping in early November, we’re looking at mid-November for European fulfillment.

Asia/Australia - Last in the order are all the books going to Asia and the Australian regions. Based on the aforementioned estimates, our team has been told that these books will start shipping to backers at the end of November this year.

The Vault will be Shipping in December as well!

Items Discussed:

  • The Vault: Rules Compendium Vol. 1 (Physical)
     
  • The Vault: Rules Compendium Vol. 1. (Digital)
     
  • Rambo Cinematic Adventure (Digital)
     
  • Universal Soldier Cinematic Adventure (Digital)
     

We’ve also got an update for our rules compilation book, now titled The Vault: Rules Compendium Vol. 1! These books will be shipping all around the same time, actually. Our Operations team has let us know that because of when they finished and ship out, rather than going out in big sections based on timing and region, all the shipments of The Vault are managing to sync up together. Right now, according to our estimations, The Vault books will start shipping in early December, and we’ll post another update once we get close to that as well. Knowing that we plan to do our Military Heroes Gamefound campaign in January, we know how imperative it is to get you all of your games before that campaign goes live. We need you to know that this is a huge priority for us, and based on our current estimates, we are on track to have all the final waves starting in December of this year, before the campaign.

We’re working on getting you all the Digital files too! As of right now, the PDFs for The Vault, Rambo, and Universal Soldier are ready, and we’re currently arranging getting those to you in a timely fashion! Thank you again to all our community members who helped with our final stages of proofreading the books. Your names are being immortalized in the credits of the book under Evil Aggressive Entomologists (what we now call our bug bashers), so please take a look at that once you get your books! To show credit where credit is due, we’ll be immortalizing this community contribution forever. We’ll be including this in all our books moving forward, and I’m happy to have been responsible for making that happen. We'll be releasing the PDFs for those tomorrow through DriveThruRPG. Please be on the lookout for the associated emails!

I’d like to also give you an update regarding expedited shipping with these waves going out. If you opted out of expedited shipping options and the last books on your order that needed to be made are Rambo and Universal Soldier, your entire order will be shipping with that wave! However, if you opted out of expedited shipping and you ordered The Vault: Rules Compendium Vol. 1, your entire order will not be shipping to you until December when those books are ready to ship. If you originally opted out of expedited shipping but would like to receive your books now, you can switch over, but I honestly wouldn’t recommend it. Since there’s only one month left of waiting, it would be safer to get all your goods at once when the wave is ready rather than splitting it up so late in the game. That being said, you can make that decision on your own, and whatever you decide to do, I’ll respect it! Send me an email to [email protected] to reach out to me with questions about that or anything else on your order. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions! I’d rather help you solve them sooner rather than later. Have a good rest of your day, and Happy Halloween!
