The Empire Game

Happy New Decade!

Time sure flies since last I posted. Looking back at 2009, it’s been quite an eventful year for me. Since the start of last year, right after I completed my university degree, I have been busy working with my friends at Fun Forged making The Empire Game. Working on this game last year was a time well-spent, making 2009 a fond year to remember.

The Empire Game is a team-oriented strategy MMO, where you take control of an empire belonging to a team to compete for dominance by crushing other empires and conquering their land, forging alliances with other teams,  and eventually backstabbing your allies as you climb towards becoming the most powerful empire. “Power” is a measure of your empire’s economic and military might, so the most powerful empire is usually one that maintains a balance between their offensive and defensive military forces and their internal economy (to sustain their military).

For me personally, it was the year to do this; I simply could not pass out on the opportunity to work on an MMO straight out of university with a group of very talented people who are also great friends. Our core development team is currently 5 people, including myself. Making The Empire Game was a labour of love, yet also a serious undertaking made even more so by our lack of financial support.  There were stressful and frustrating moments to weather, but it all led to one great game, and an awesome “high five” material for us to be proud of. :)

The Empire Game is currently available online for people to enjoy, and it has been in open beta for the past two months. We are currently improving and maintaining the game, with some very cool plans for it in the future.
