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.

- Play with 3 different emperors to rule your empire: senator, Wizard & Warchief.

- Fantastic graphics.

- Gather resources and boost your economy.

- Create a massive army and defend your empire.

We have tons of plans for the game in terms of future content additions, balance patches, extra game modes, and other support.

    Honestly the title threw me at first, giving me the impression this was something that wasn't quite my forte. But I tell you now it is a travesty this title is lost among the very poor categorization and search functions of the play store, (and all app stores for that matter). First off, this isn't of the nickel and dime iap bubble that's making a mockery of mobile/social gaming...This takes core

    This is a surprisingly good game. It's not a standard 4x. There isn't a tech tree for instance.The game is basically a combination of rogue-like difficulty and 4x. My only complaint is that losing battles affects your ability to win future battles too much. Its bad enough that you have only one army and you can't heal units. The strife cards are what break it for me. 1 for every unit lost is too m

    Once you figure out a good strategy, the game is just too easy and repetitive to keep your interest.

    The needlessly confusing tutorial left me wondering why I kept dying over and over. There is no victory condition; It's just a score chase. Seems like there should be more actual strategy.

    You can only have 3 cities max (meaning it plays in an hour or two and doesn't sprawl), but you need to manage them as they decline and need to be recycled. The battle engine is almost a separate game and is very ingenious, using a Dominion-style deck building engine to give your troops the edge, which they'll need to win cleanly to earn points and keep your deck efficient.
