Happy Mother’s Day from Empire of Sin
The creators behind Empire of Sin released a video on Mother’s Day that focuses on one of the game’s characters and their real-life inspiration. Brenda and John Romero talk about how mob boss Elvira Duarte was inspired by John’s great-grandmother Elvira Duarte Morales, before the two talk about the character’s in-game abilities.
Empire of Sin is a strategy RPG set in 1920 Chicago where players select a mob boss to control as they aim to take over the city. The game is being developed by Romero Games and published by Paradox Interactive and is expected to release sometime in 2020 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.
