Empire Craft is a new free MMORTS (massively multiplayer online role-playing strategy) game that allows players to develop cities, armies, resource plots, and battle for dominance against other players on a massive world map. Each player starts out with a plot of land and must build up his/her city, defenses, food and resource production, and a massive army to conquer neighbors and nearby resource locations. Battle plans are enacted in real-time, and working together with your union members, basically guild mates, is the only option when faced with some of the more powerful lords in your area.
Interestingly enough, this sounds very familiar right? There are only a couple changed twists in this game.
There are three different races in Empire Craft each with a specific set of graphics for their buildings and landscape. Troops also have different strengths and statistics depending upon their race. The races are Humans, Dwarves, and Orcs. Unions (alliances) can be based on race or geographical location, but different races start in different areas. Heroes are also race specific, but you can still hire them regardless of their race.
There’s a lot more but here’s the real question – is this Evony or is this a rip-off game trying to be like Evony?
There are a lot of questions to be answered. We’ll be addressing Empire Craft later on.
