Hey, everyone! VS Dave here.

First things first: We’re excited to announce that we’re bringing a bit of Eville to Steam Next Fest, Feb. 21 – 28. Check out our planned activities here.

Now, let’s get to the main event of this blog!

If you like variety in your social dedication games, then you’re in for a treat, because Eville boasts a whopping 12 different character roles to play! Understanding the pros and cons of your role’s abilities, and how they complement the other roles on your team, is the key to success in Eville.

But don’t let that overwhelm you! Over the next few weeks, stay tuned to this space as we break down each role, highlight their abilities, and even provide a few basic tips to get you started.

Let’s begin with the first three!


Role Introduction - Part One

Role: Barbarian

Faction: Conspirator

Perhaps the biggest and nastiest among the Conspirators, the Barbarian is an absolute killing machine. When someone falls to an axe, you can bet that it was the handiwork of this merciless tank.

Role: Detective

Faction: Villager

When murder is afoot, you’ll want your best Detective on the case! Not even the wiliest Conspirator is able to hide their true identity forever, and you’d better believe that the Detective is more than capable of sniffing them out.

Role: Smuggler

Faction: Conspirator

The Smuggler is a demolitions expert, among other specialties, and that should keep you awake at night. Where did that sound come from? Did the floorboards just quake? Is that an intruder standing at the foot of your bed? No one meets the Smuggler twice.

That’s all for now! As always, if you have any content to share or questions for the team, please feel free to reach out via our socials. You can stay in touch with me and the rest of the Versus Evil team by joining our Discord and following us on Twitter, Reddit, and Facebook.
