Armageddon Empires Update 1.04 Released

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ohio, USA -- August 7, 2007 -- Indie game developer Cryptic Comet announced today that their turn based strategy game Armageddon Empires has been updated to version 1.04. The update can be obtained at their website www.crypticcomet.com. In addition to numerous fixes, two new UI features allow players to easily identify which cards in their hand can be directly played to the board and which hex the enemy is attacking by checking for a marker on the mini map. Also available in a separate download is an optional mod for players with color blindness who are having difficulty distinguishing between the resource icons on the game map.

Armageddon Empires takes the best elements of collectable card games (don’t worry there are no cards to chase you get them all), board games, and computer games and brings them all together to provide a unique strategy war game experience. Choose a normal size map and battle in a death match with a single AI opponent finishing within an hour or select a huge map and slug it out with the other 3 factions in a game of epic proportions.

Update, Demo and Full Game Available at www.crypticcomet.com
