Critic Reviews for MachiaVillain

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 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.

The game is a must for horror fans, but slugglish gamplay mechanics may leave some players frustrated and a bit bored

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.

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.

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?
