The game is a must for horror fans, but slugglish gamplay mechanics may leave some players frustrated and a bit bored
At the end, if you follow the tropes, you will earn yourself upgrades to your crypt, unlocking extra monsters, extra victims, and more. If you don't, though, you will end up in debt and starving, or possibly even have your villain license revoked! I wholeheartedly recommend that everyone that enjoyed prison tycoon style games to give this a look-see. It's worth the price tag, plus it has Twitch integration!
MachiaVillain is a fun sandbox style open-ended building and resource management game which can get as complicated as you want it to. There isn't a massive amount of variety but what it does have, it does really well. Micro-management is the key here, if you would rather set a task and ignore your minion from then on, then this probably isn't for you. You must always stay on top of whats happening if you wish to run a successful dead-and-breakfast venue.
Ever felt like building your own horror mansion, luring victims in, and then... dealing with them? 'Machiavillain' puts you in the shoes of a minion who does just that!
MachiaVillain is a interesting mix between the horror movies clichés and a sim but after few hours the game feels clumsy and devious in it's mechanics.

MachiaVillain is a monster hotel management sim that definitely deserves your time. The brief moments of frustration and confusion are outweighed by genuinely hilarious moments of dark humor and satisfying management-sim bliss.
MahiaVillain is a well-designed game for every fan of the economic strategy genre. It offers a lot, but unlocking all of this takes time.

MachiaVillain is a provides a terribly fun concept for a management simulation game.
MachiaVillain's unique take on the management sim genre is hard to put down, but not all that glitters is gold (or in this case, not everything that glitters grants Prestige).
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.
