Santa Sarge is Here! He brings a Sale! [mok]

Santa Sarge has returned, and being as commerical as we know he is, he is announcing a never before seen sale of Empire Deluxe and The Perfect General!

This sale is in honor of ten years of of the revival of Empire Deluxe and the Perfect General, as well as the soon-to-arrive Empire Deluxe Mobile Edition.

If you have been on the fence, or you are new to these games, or need a gift idea, now is the time to snatch them up!

Beta Update! Santa Coming! [mok]

Coming up for air just to say in Beta news: EDME Android and iOS are on track for early December release!

Here is a 10 minute video showing the current beta in an ipad simulator. It's a little dry, so only die-hards should watch it all.

Windows and RIM (Black Berry) will come at some point after the others. (Doubtful Dec for Windows, and it will be Windows 8 phone only)

With Turkey Day fast approaching in The States, Santa Sarge should be coming soon. Keep an eye out for him!




October 4, 2013

At last, it's Coming! [mok]

I can not tell you how many people are looking forward to this, including me. Technology and my efforts have finally come together to offer up:

Empire Deluxe Mobile Edition





We should see it in December. I have also started an App Information Page for Empire Deluxe Mobile Edition, where you can get some more video sneaks at it as well as other info.

A Hint     [mok]


September 21, 2013

Something is coming...     [mok]

Yeah, we have been here before, but this time it is real, 'cause I am looking at it right now. More details very soon.

Also, there will be an EDEE patch coming this October. Nothing ground (or game) breaking, just fixes and adjustments based on the review of last October's patch.


May 27, 2013

Happy Anniversary!     [mok]

Ten Years, 'nuff said.


March 25, 2013

Y2K Was So Yesterday!     [mok]

 

Well, it looks like the latest patch built last October has claimed a victim - namely someone contacted me regarding the game not running on Windows 2000. The culprit was the VS 2012 aspect of the build. I was able to make a retro build of the game, but I suspect going forward I will not be supporting that platform.


February 16, 2013

Milestone coming soon     [mok]

 

Hard to believe the 10th anniversary of EDIE's release is coming up...the game of Empire itself is now working on its 5th decade. I cannot even begin to imagine the number of hours that have been spent playing it by everyone. What a great game.


January 15, 2013

Something cool...     [mok]

 

I rarely plug other things, but here is something cool that is going on, and it will be interesting to watch it unfold. Though a very different genre from Empire Deluxe, in some way it is related...

Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games have produced many excellent games such as Dungeon Siege and some great RTS games in the past. Though RTS may not be your bag, you should follow his latest kickstarter. I, for one, am interested to see what comes of it.

Santa Sarge Is Coming To Town!     [mok]


 

Santa Sarge has arrived, wishing everyone a happy holiday season. Unfortunately, Santa Sarge still cannot reveal what he is up to. His elves are running very late. Hopefully the New Year will bring new news.


October 2, 2012

And Here It Is     [mok]

Not Quite Yet For EDEE     [mok]

 

My apologies that it has not made it out yet. I wanted to let everyone know I have not forgotten and it is drawing near. We are getting really close for a patch release, and about 20 folks are testing it. They have provided me with a great deal of wonderful feedback, and I want to make sure it is given the appropriate attention and I am trying hard to make sure new bugs have not been introduced to it. My goal is to be done before October. So stay tuned.


Nothing yet to report on the other thing I have been teasing about this year. But things must be closer. Stay tuned for info in that as well.


August 8, 2012

EDIE Patch Away!     [mok]

 

I have released the EDIE patch, putting us at version 3.515 #011P. This patch makes minor adjustments from issues over the years. It has been quite a while since I have done a patch, so hopefully I got it right. If not, we will do another one ;>

Get the patch here.

UPDATE: Someone has already pointed out that I neglected to include d&quick.scn in the patch update. The patch file was updated, but if you have already pulled it before reading this message and want it, here is that scenario file.
He also reported a hang on one of the newly recovered scenarios, "q&dirty.scn". I will investigate that one further. Looks like 3.515 will not be the last version, but I cannot tell you when it will be patched again ;> If you do experience any issues, do not hesitate to report them to me.

EDEE will be next, but there is still one minor fix to be made there before release.


August 2, 2012

Patches Are Due     [mok]

 

The patches have been tested, and are just about ready for release. The first one out will be EDIE, which should be real soon. I have to still make some minor adjustments to make to EDEE, and then that will follow. Last will be PGIE, as I want to address the issue that has arisen in the forums. So stay in tune for the next couple of weeks as these begin to unfold.


June 25, 2012

The Teaser     [mok]

 

I was asked to post something and put up a teaser. Below is the screen shot of the new "Production Calculator" which will be included in the upcoming patch for EDEE.

We will see the patch towards the end of the July. It is currently in testing and I am having a great deal of fun playing it. EDIE is also recieving a small patch, as well as PGIE.

As for that other 'Empire-related' project I am working on, the momentum is coming along. I would love to tell but alas I am sworn to secrecy. I suspect the news about it will hit the wire around September/October, but I cannot say for sure. Things are looking good though, and I hope it is something Empire Deluxe fans world-wide will be able to enjoy!


February 12, 2012

Santa Sarge has left the building!     [mok]

 

 

So Santa Sarge overstayed a bit, but he did leave a neat little gift. Also, some news that this year I hope we will hear something exciting about Empire Deluxe, possibly even The Perfect General. I don't want to say at the moment,  for as you know if you have followed this site,  there have been things I thought would happen in the past, and they seemed to fizzle. But I have a good feeling on this one, as I am more directly involved.

This will also mean at some point (hopefully in the first half of the year), there will be a patch for both versions of Empire, and possibly The Perfect General. So stay tuned and enjoy the gift!
