Major Evolution 3 (update 0.6) is live now on Steam Early Access. It adds a new gameplay mode - Speed Runs!
Speed Run mode challenges you to beat the game as quickly as possible and lets you compare your record against friends. In order to eradicate the world quickly - you will have to explore radically different strategies to give an edge over the pesky humans. How quickly can you kill the world?
Will you be the quaranTIME* champion?!
The update also includes a number of fixes, tweaks and additions - see below for more. Steam should automatically download this update.
Next week - I will be going to the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Bad news is that this will mean the next Evolution will be a bit slower. (release the week of the 24th of March) Good news is that it will add the much requested Necroa Virus (inc. zombies).
- Added Speed Runs
- General performance improvements
- News item text fixes

The release of major content update Evolution 2 added the Neurax Worm as well as a few unwanted bugs (the bad sort)!
This update is a quick bugfix update to address issues around unlocking of cheats and display of biohazard medals and a few other tweaks. Thanks everyone who helped us track these issues down.
Full Change Log 0.5.6:
- Fixed - Display of biohazard medals re difficulty level of completion next to disease type.
- Fixed - issue allowing gene unlocks to come via double clicking - even if locked
- Fixed - cheat plagues unlock properly when winning the game on Brutal/Mega Brutal
- Fixed - text for Eurozone news item.
- Fixed - Patient Who achievement
- Fixed - incorrect message reporting unlock of Necroa Virus
- Fixed - XML error on CDC news item.
Some people may have not had their Brutal and Mega Brutal progress stored in the last few days. Sorry about this - it is working properly now and it shouldn't happen again as we have made some fundamental improvements to the save structure of unlocks.
Will share news about the next update soon!
