The Story So Far

Struck with complete memory loss and wandering through a shadowy and mysteriously unfamiliar place; you find yourself on the hunt for the enigmatic Elias, a villainous rogue who is seemingly responsible for your amnesia. In Empyre: Earls of the Deep Earth, players are invited to explore the secrets of an exotic land, bathed in an ominous and seemingly perpetual darkness. Will you be able to discover a way to restore light to an endangered empire?

Featuring a top-down isometric presentation, Empyre: Earls of the Deep Earthwill rekindle the flames of nostalgia in old-school PC RPG fans with gameplay that harkens back to the classic story driven RPGs of the 90s. While the combat should feel familiar to veteran players of the Empyre series, there have been new twists added with a hybrid real time/turn-based combat system.

Players can enter a “Planning Mode” where they choose actions for each character in their party while combat is paused, and when entering into the “Action Mode” all characters will perform simultaneously, giving players complete control over their party while presenting a streamlined combat system that eliminates waiting for each character to act in sequence.

“One of the things we strove for when designing Empyre was to project a believable vision of the future in the past,” said John Randall, Creative Director of Empyre. “But not just any future. An Utopian vision of the future across cultures. A future based on steam-powered contraptions and all manner of mechanical marvels. People and society exist and act as they did in the early 20th Century but live in an amazing Age of wondrous machines. We feel this will give the players a one-of-a-kind experience that they haven’t seen anywhere before.”
