The turn-based team multiplayer strategy game that's been in development this past year is gearing for launch and looking for more beta testers. If you're interested in helping us test (and having some fun), head over to the official website and sign up. We'll be accepting new testers on a first-come first-served basis and expanding our testing base weekly.

To learn more about the game, check out the community beta forum thread here.

Nice. I'm gonna invite a couple more peeps to this now.

Excellent game! A lot deeper than I initially thought.

I'll give the beta a shot. Good way to pass the time in class when you're avoiding flow rate and reconstitution math. Fun fun.

That is a really terrible graphic. I was trying to figure out why you'd placed a black strip along the bottom, but then I realised that it wasn't actually part of the image but was just the same image reflected - except that it doesn't look like a reflection because it's all the same opacity with no falloff. And the fact that it's a terrible attempt at a reflection is really a moot point considering that adding reflections to everything is a design fetish employed by just about everyone on the web these days, including advertisers, and I couldn't be any more sick of seeing them whether done right or wrong. The background itself is very blurry and looking at the mountain range on the right makes me think I'm suffering from double vision, but on top of all that, it's made to look very flat by the huge drop shadow coming from the plane and slightly subtler drop shadow from the men in camouflage. The logo looks like it was drawn by someone else entirely and doesn't mesh well with any of the other visual elements, which I assume is what the designer wanted - for it to mesh - because there's no stroke or drop shadow applied to make it stand out, which is where, if anywhere, one would expect these effects to be employed, instead of letting the logo sink into the background and making some irrelevant objects stand out on the corners, but what's worse is that someone with absolutely no design talent at all decided to add a reflection to that as well.

I realise it's an indy game with a low budget and I, like anyone else, instinctively wish to support it; but how can anyone when it has a promotional image of such poor quality? And don't even get me started on the website.

Bilge, erm...shut up (?)

Yes, it might not be graphically amazing. But like you said, this is low budget, so we are hardly going to see the CoD6 of web-browser games here are we?
2 things that sums it up pretty well.

(1) If you're so good, lets see you make one.

and...

(2) Erm.... IT'S ONLY IN BETA!

These things that you are complaining about are likely to be improved by time the full-game release.

They are the ones who have spent these last 2 years making the game for people like, me, u and the rest of the community...
So be bloody grateful!

Yeah, i also want to know this question icon_razz.gif I could post it onto things such as the Team Dignitas forum. And ofc, Dignitas are known as one of the number one eSports teams in the world so....icon_razz.gif

Yeah, im also wondering this too.



And Jarett, will we see 'TheEmpireGame' on the new tv series or re-boot of internet series (or neither?) ?

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

I have sucessfully used schools before.
They increase the amount of research points u get so instead of waiting 6 turns for a point, with 200 land u may only have to wait 5, 400 = 4, not sure of the balancing now but thats the idea.
and they do other things..

I just learned this uber strat from Kazzerax, it's completely different from what most people are doing I think.. the tough part is timing it properly at the start.
