Critic Reviews for MachiaVillain
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.
Bottom Line? It's a fun and zany game with a quirky art style (feels similar to Don't Starve) but it can be cumbersome. Also, the randomization can hurt: I had to start several games over from minute 1 when there wasn't enough free space to start building my haunted house. Also… the ability to have multiple stories would be nice. Haunted basements, anyone? Attics?
