Sometimes it's good to be bad. And sometimes it's good to be Vile. At least, it is when you're the demonic star of Reincarnation: The Root of All Evil, the first commercial adventure in the long-running series from Christopher Gianelloni and B Group Productions.
After an extensive collection of mini- and full-blown Reincarnation freeware episodes starring a little purple minion of the Devil sent to earth to reclaim escaped souls, The Root of All Evil begins in Hell, though after a "wild, partying bender", Vile finds his home to be not at all as he left it.
The Root of All Evil differs from its freeware predecessors in several ways. The new game will be fully downloadable for Windows, Mac, and Linux instead of a browser-based flash game. It will also be much longer, with over 50 scenes to explore, a wide variey of fully voiced characters to interact with both in Hell and on earth, plus "different Reincarnies to find, and a wide array of silly puzzles to figure out in order to finish your quest."
Successfully funded through a Kickstarter fundraising campaign, the developers are still offering special pre-order exclusives to those who missed out in order to help meet the game's target completion goal of August 2013.
