Empire of Ember

A secret enemy launches a surprise attack on your home, viciously murdering your wizard master and leaving your city in ruins. No longer an apprentice, you must take charge of a magical kingdom and rule as you see fit.

Fight
  • Use the environment to crush, trip, impale, or explode enemies.
  • Raise up fallen enemies and command the undead to fight on your behalf.
  • Fully destructible cities. Use catapults to fire from afar, or blast through the walls and lead your troops through the breach.

Command
  • Lead your army in first person, in battles of up to a hundred units.
  • Tactics matter. Order your men to hold the line with a shield wall while archers rain death from above. Teleport behind enemy lines to wreak havoc.

Build
  • Design, decorate, and defend your own fully destructible 3D city. Strategically place spawn points to rain fire from high towers while melee units defend the gates.
  • Integrated sharing. Download, destroy, and rate other players’ cities.

Rule
  • Make decisions that can change the story and lead to different game endings. Features a story written by Patrick Kevin Day, a former lead writer from Telltale Games.
  • Hold court and pass judgement on daily events in the lives of your subjects.
