Long time no see. It's been a while since we wrote an update on Rising Empires. Both Johan and I have been busy getting the single-player version of Rising Empires working. It takes some time as we both have jobs on the side... We've done lots of progress on the AI (if you're interested in details and code examples visit our Rising Empires blog
) and we'll soon have a version of the game that can be play tested.
Our plan for the immediate future is to release the first beta version of Rising Empires in the last week of February. It will contain the second version of our AI (as we see it) and 4 races will be included (Humans, Elves, Greenskins and Ende). The AI will be able to explore, expand, research, attack and defend itself. There will still be lots of features missing but we plan to update the beta version regularly as we continue to improve Rising Empires. The purpose of this first beta version is to check the stability of the game, investigate how the AI performs and to get valuable feedback from the potential players out there. It will be available from Google Play making it easy for all interested play testers to download and update as we improve and add more features.
