  Rising Empires Christmas sale!
  Share on Twitter Share on Facebook RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

To celebrate the festive season and our major update of Rising Empires we're cutting the price of Rising Empires Premium by 40%. For the next two weeks, Rising Empires Premium will be $1.99 only (standard price $3.49). The update on December 12th includes new graphics and features like road building.

The Rivers and roads update allows players to connect their cities with roads, providing faster movement for footmen and cavalry. Rivers, on the other hand, are hard to cross but give a large boost to the food output of the sectors where they flow. This makes the placement of cities even more strategically important. Another improvement is new terrain and army graphics that make the map more intuitive.

"The Rivers and roads update marks an important turning point in the Rising Empires universe. All important features have now been implemented and we can start working on adding an even higher degree of flexibility for the player to build the empire he or she wants," say the developers.

Rising Empires is a new 4x strategy game available from Google Play and other app stores. In its recent review, Hardcore Droid gave it 4.8 out of the maximum 5 and concluded 'You’ll be hard pressed to find a mobile game that tackles the subgenre with greater success.’ Rising Empires was developed by the independent Swedish studio Hellhound Interactive owned by the two brothers Johan and Peter Norberg. We strive to create smart phone games which give a deeper gaming experience.
