Evolution is a digital adaptation of the popular table top board game of the same name from North Star Games, in which players must adapt and evolve their species to enable them to survive and prosper in a harsh and constantly changing ecosystem.
In Evolution players start with a basic species and must balance risk with reward as they decide how to evolve to thrive best in the games dynamic ecosystem. It really is a case of survival of the fittest as you deal with predators and limited resources in different ways – so for instance evolving traits like a hard shell and horns will protect you from carnivores, while a long neck will help you reach food other creatures can’t reach. With a constantly changing ecosystem every game promises to be different, and with over 12000 different possible species, Evolution promises plenty of replayability.
Evolution is the first foray into digital games for North Star Games, but they certainly know how to make compelling board games with the likes of Wits & Wagers, Say Anything and Evolution. The digital version of Evolution promises to be more than just a carbon copy of the table top version too, offering a full-scale video game experience with an immersive environment, dynamic artwork and highly strategic and challenging gameplay that will appeal to experienced players and newcomers alike.
