Escape the Mad Empire Announced
Developer XperimentalZ Games announced tactical party-based RPG Escape the Mad Empire. The game is being developed for PC and planned to release on Steam Early Access sometime in late 2022 or early 2023.
Escape the Mad Empire is billed as a mixture of roguelike, party-based RPG, base-building, and action RPG. It is set following the fall of an underground empire that mined and used powerful crystals to create abonimations and conduct experiments. The game sees players venturing out on missions with randomly-generated dungeon maps that grant story progress and unlock new environments, quests, and more when completed. It features real-time-with-pause combat along with immediate spellcasting. Between runs, players can manage their party, recruit new characters, craft and purchase items, and build up their home base.
