Realms is pleased to announce the forthcoming title Empiriana Mobile.
Empiriana Mobile is a massively multi player role playing game set
in a medieval theme, available for wireless networked play on J2ME/MIDP
enabled mobile devices such as the new generation of mobile phones.
Mobile is a ground breaking development, bringing formerly unseen
features and play to J2ME devices. Features include:
Time Multi Player Gaming
See, interact, and cooperate with other players in real time. Watch
other players as they explore the Empiriana world, chat with friends
to share strategies, or cooperate together to defeat a powerful
enemy. Playing in the company of other players adds a huge dimension
to the gaming experience. Empiriana features 6 character classes
and 7 character races to choose from. The numerous combinations
yield characters with different strengths and an emphasis on different
skills. When players of different classes and races join forces,
it allows a very diverse palette of strategies in defeating the
denizens of Empiriana; bringing numerous dynamics to the game.
Utilizing proprietary dynamic game resourcing, Empiriana Mobile
allows a huge gaming experience to be performed within the small
limited footprint of J2ME devices. While the game fits into a tiny
space, the experience is much larger than the small footprint it
requires. Despite it's small size and on demand networked resources,
Empiriana Mobile doesn't require lengthy or constant downloads during
play. Fully playing through the game takes upwards of 400 hours,
though it can be accomplished more quickly with the assistance of
other experienced and powerful player.
All of the player's hard work is not lost when they log off. In
fact, it's not even lost if the battery in their device dies during
play or their connection gets broken. Characters in Empiriana grow
and become more powerful over time, and this growth is safely stored
in the Empiriana server system. Using proprietary designs, character
data is invulnerable to the numerous forms of interruptions. When
a session is terminated for whatever reason, when the player returns
to the game, their character is exactly where they left them. Also,
because the characters are stored on the server, when a user upgrades
a phone, they don't have to worry about backing up character data.
The characters will be automatically available when they activate
their new phone.
Empiriana Mobile creates a new standard for graphics on limited
mobile devices. Through the use of proprietary graphical encoding,
dynamic game resourcing, and advanced VM object caching, graphics
are not only outstanding for the class of device, but animation
speed is very quick and fluid.
The Empiriana game worlds are based on dynamic and extensible engines.
Additional game features and expansions can be released in real
time without client application updates. Over time, as Empiriana
updates are released, the available game gets larger and larger,
offering more and more things to do.
more than just a maze
Empiriana Mobile is much more than a maze game. There are puzzles
to solve, rooms, treasures, and items to discover and quests to
complete. There are switches to flip, doors to unlock, machines
to repair, pools that may heal or harm, legends to learn, and of
course monsters. Lots and lots of monsters. Some merely a nuisance,
others instantly fatal, at least until players gain enough experience
and resources to turn the tables on the denizens.
Mobile began development in early Q3 2002. The release of Empiriana
Mobile is expected to be in Q1 2003. For updates of the development
progress, visit our Client Status and Development Screen Shots page
