Evil Genius is a 2004 real-time strategy and simulation video game developed by Elixir Studios and published by Sierra Entertainment, released on 28 September 2004. The game is inspired by the spy thriller genre (notably the James Bond film series). Similarly to Dungeon Keeper, the game turns the traditional plotline on its head, with the player acting as the villain, evading the comically stereotyped forces of justice. Gameplay revolves around the player building an island fortress and committing clichéd world domination.

The game received generally favorable reviews, scoring an average critic rating of 77% on Game Rankings. Evil Genius' music score, composed by James Hannigan, received a BAFTA nomination for Best Original Music in 2004.

The intellectual property rights of the game are since March 2, 2006 confirmed to be owned by Rebellion Developments
