This is a Carbon port of the original and ancient EMPIRE. Those of you who are more than 40 years old may remember this mother of all strategy games. Please refer to the detailed description on playing instructions ("Empire.pdf").

And also, please don't blame the quite poor graphics on me; I just ported the original version and added only a few Mac specific extensions... Installation: Please put the font file "Empfont" in one of the folders ".../Library/Fonts/"; otherwise EMPIRE will not look very nice. Version History

Even this "new" location doesn't work anymore. Too bad, I loved Empire when I was young.
