The new age of a genre
Strategy-oriented indie publisher Slitherine announced Empires Apart just over a year ago, highlighting their enthusiasm in the prospect of working on a modern RTS.
In their press release, Slitherine stated that “games like Age of Empires have forged the way we play strategy games nowadays, but the genre has been neglected for a long time now and we really wanted to reimagine the gameplay style with developer DESTINYbit.”
