Hi! My name is Mike and I'm with Relevant Games. We'd like to share a game with you that we've been working on. It will be released in a couple of months.

 

In Scrap Squad, you play as an evil genius bent on (of course) world domination by making use of a never-ending stream of the world's garbage. By collecting and matching up varying types of recyclable items, you, as the evil genius, will fund your efforts. Use your ill-gotten gains to buy upgrades for your clanky collection of helper 'bots, while also tricking out your lair. Turn your scrap heap team of robots into a well-oiled super robot squad of collectors! Build an evil lair that will make you the envy of your sinister friends.

 

*Fast-paced gameplay challenging players to match and sort objects in a limited amount of time

*Robot upgrades and special power-ups help the player keep up with the never-ending flow of mixed-up objects

*A great mix of fun for kids and adults

*Customization options let the player trick out their secret lab and make it their own

 

Scrap Squad puts players in the role of the game's namesake mad scientist in a frantically fun-on-the-run action game. Players start out with a secret lab, a few clunker robots and a simple mission to match up falling objects, which those robots haul away and turn into cash to finance your nefarious plans. The trash treadmill soon speeds up, challenging the player to upgrade his army of 'bots to become faster and more efficient. As players earn more and more money, they can unlock tons of upgrades, and make stylishly cool customizations to their evil lair - making them the envy of mad men everywhere!

From a quick googling it looks that this is an indie game unaffiliated with Rebellion.

 

If that's the case have you checked out the legality of using such a similar name to the Evil Genius series? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evil_Genius_%28video_game%29, which Rebellion bought up the rights to and are actively developing games with http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/12/19/rebellions-evil-genius-online-in-open-beta-again/

 

If not, then I would speak to a trademark lawyer ASAP, might save you some time and money, as the name is trademarked in Europe at least: http://www.ipo.gov.uk/tmcase/Results/4/EU003180701

Thanks for that. We're going to drop the Evil Genius monicker from our title as we don't want to infringe on someone else's IP. We wouldn't want someone doing that to us so it makes total sense to drop it.

 

Going forward, the title of the game will be Scrap Squad.

Focus Testing Scrap Squad

 

In-between stomping out bugs and finalizing features, the Scrap Squad team has been spending the week adding on polish to the game. The crew was motivated and pushed by preparing for an end of the week focus test. 15 pairs of fresh-eyes would be playing the game and then telling us exactly what they think about what we’ve all been working on for the past few months. No stress, right? Everyone hunkered down, stayed late and busted out some great work, so all worry about what the focus group would say ended up turning into nervous excitement to hear their thoughts. 

 

Here's a first look at our splash screen. Trust us, it only gets cooler from here!

Hard work and preparations paid off! Two groups from CPCC came down from Charlotte, each spent two hours playing Scrap Squad, taking surveys and giving us candid Big Brother-style feedback in our camera room.

All of us at Relevant Games & Hazard Studios couldn’t be more proud, or more anxious to review all of the analytics and their thoughts next week.

Here are a couple of screens from our latest build of the game. Enjoy!
