Denver, CO – November 29th, 2022 - VestGames, an independent game development company, and Versus Evil, one of the leading independent video game publishers, today announced that its multiplayer social deduction game Eville has added new content for its November 1.2 update.
The latest additions to the game come in the form of a new stranger, the Ritualist, a new item for Conspirator ghosts called Poltergeist, and a new vendor item, Herbal Tea - which users can drink to restore 50 health over a period of 60 seconds.
In the role of the Ritualist, players have the Craft Cursed Doll ability, allowing them to select a player and craft a doll, binding their life to it. The doll can be used for rituals with a variety of negative effects on unsuspecting players, such as the Steal Life Essence ability, where they can sacrifice a cursed doll to steal part of another player's life and increase the Ritualist's health.
As a Ritualist, players also have two other abilities,Dark Idol: Sacrifice a Cursed Doll to build a Dark Idol, linking your life to that of another player. (Dark Idols can be destroyed). Shared Fate: Any damage taken is split between the Ritualist and each player affected by a Dark Idol. Executions are exempt from this.
Additionally, the update introduces a new Ghost Item for Conspirators in the form of Poltergeist - which summons a Poltergeist that deals damage to everyone around themselves until it's removed by a ghost. It follows any nearby living player, but Conspirators do not take damage.
November's 1.2 update also brings some quality of life improvements and smaller fixes all of which are detailed below.
