Escape The Mad Empire Officially Announced for Steam!

We're extremely glad to finally announce Escape the Mad Empire after more than 4 years of work! You can already add the game to your wishlist on the Steam Store!. Escape the Mad Empire is not exactly easy to describe because it spans across multiple RPG genres. It has a similar meta-game structure as Darkest Dungeon I (base-building and teams management). The combat system plays like a mash-up of games like Divinity II and Baldur's Gate II (deeply tactical real-time combat with instant-actions on pause without casting delays). The adventures feel like traditional roguelikes (dungeon crawling, procedural generation, perma-death, emergent gameplay). Even great action-RPG games as Enter the Gungeon influenced us during development (crazy magic items, high pace and intensity, pixel-art, humor).

The Original Fallout 3 is Being Recreated by a Fan

The original Fallout 3 was under development by the famous Black Isle Studios once upon a time all the way back in 2003. They developed such hits such as Fallout, Fallout 2, Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale 1 & 2, and Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 2. Bethesda Game Studios of course went on to develop another, incredibly different version of Fallout 3. While it was an excellent title in its own right, fans have always wondered what could have been. Worry not, because a fan is ambitiously looking to recreate the original Fallout 3 the way Black Isle Studios would've most likely preferred.
