Rising Empires due for release September 21st on Google Play

The epic 4x turn-based strategy game for Android will be released on September 21st. There will be two versions of the game; a free one with ads and a premium version with additional content. The extra premium features include two additional playable races, the fast breeding Krant and the versatile Dwarves. The game is scheduled for release on Google Play and several other app stores.

Rising Empires is a new strategy game in a fantasy setting where six races, all with unique abilities, compete for control of all the land on the Surface and in the Netherworld. A unique troop creation system allows each empire to design their own troop types to employ in the struggle for dominance.

The game is currently in an open beta stage and can be downloaded at Google Play ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hellhound.empires). At the time of writing, it is installed on 900 devices and has been downloaded more than 2,700 times. Many reviewers compare the game to classics like Civilization and Total War. One player writes: “Exactly the type of game I’ve been hoping for.” The average rating is 4.2.

Rising Empires has been in development since early 2011 by the independent studio Hellhound Interactive. At Hellhound Interactive, we strive to create smart phone games which give a deeper gaming experience. The studio is owned by the two brothers Johan and Peter Norberg. Rising Empires is their first game for the Android market.
