Build villainous lairs and wreck others’ dreams in this puzzly tile-placing game

Newly-appointed lair architect to the evil mastermind, your job is to build the best lair. The competition? The… other minions of the evil mastermind. Whoever builds the best lair wins. That’s the setup to Chambers of Devious Design, a recently-released indie puzzler that has you plopping down tiles to delight the boss and destroy the competition.

It wears its inspirations on its sleeve, taking from the world board games in the same way that something like Hearthstone takes from competitive card games. I’m always on the lookout for things that remind me of tile-placement board game Castles of Mad King Ludwig, so I was quite intrigued when this one fell into my inbox.
