Game Description

Empire: Wargame of the Century is a video game based on Classic Empire developed by Walter Bright and published by Interstel Corporation in 1987. Walter Bright recoded the game Empire in C on an IBM PC. With low commercial expectations, he submitted an announcement to January 1984 BYTE Magazine’s “Software Received” section, and received a flood of orders. After writing to many software companies (including Brøderbund, Sirius Software, Simon & Schuster, subLOGIC, Epyx and MicroProse), he licensed the game to a small software company named Interstel, who hired Mark Baldwin to add a graphical user interface. Starting around 1987, Empire: Wargame of the Century on the Atari ST, Amiga, Commodore 64, Apple II, Macintosh and DOS was produced.
