  • Summary: The barbarous tribes who fought amongst themselves for so many aeons are at last able to come together to found a wonderous civilization. Is yours the first of its kind in this world, or one of many? No man knows, but what all men know is that their Empire must not only survive, but flourish!The world is full of terrible horrors, however, and they will wear away at your Empire from all sides. Natural resources have become more scarce. And perhaps worst of all, your powerful Empire has grown heavy and full of internal strife with its age. How long can you stand the pressures of survival before your Empire finally comes crumbling back down into the desolated earth from which it grew?-- EMPIRE introduces the world's first "Deck-Building 4X Strategy Game". EMPIRE is a quick, easy-to-learn yet difficult to master strategy/tactics game. FEATURES:- Procedurally generated worlds mean that no two games will be alike. Will you find valuable mountains to mine military materials from? Food-rich forests that will grow your Empire quickly?- A unique take on the deck building mechanism similar to those in Dominion, Puzzle Strike or Ascension. Your deck grows during the game, and it fills with both useful Action Cards, powerful Spell Cards, -- and also totally useless Strife Cards. Managing your deck is an important part of staying strong!- Dozens of interesting tactical cards featuring excellent art from concept artist Gilles Ketting.- A unique grid based tactical combat system. Use your Action and Spell cards to get the upper hand and destroy the enemy forces!- Unlike traditional 4X strategy games which not only take hours, but tend to become slow and boring late game, EMPIRE is a quick, elegant knife-fight of a game.- Designed by indie game design superstar Keith Burgun, creator of 100 Rogues.We have tons of plans for the game in terms of future content additions, balance patches, extra game modes, and other support.Please check out our website at: http://empire-game.net/Or come chat with us at our forums: http://www.dinofarmgames.com/forum/index.php?forums/empire.12/ Expand

    Empire is a rogue-like that uses the 4X genre as its base. I enjoy it for what it is, an experience that is both singular and innovative. Seriously, if you like strategy games, this is not one to be missed.

    Rule an empire for as long as possible in this rouge-like, deck-builder, 4X mash-up of a game.

    Its strength is that it’s the polar opposite of so many strategy games that push inevitability in another direction. Thanks partly to dumb AI and your superior resources, you will prevail no matter what, or you will reload or start over until you prevail.

    A compelling catastrophe simulator masquerading as a strategy title, Empire is an entertaining game of endings.
