No, or just about none at all. I did a five-week Java course while studying 20 years ago. After that, all my knowledge is self-taught while my brother and I worked with Rising Empires a long time ago. Then I took a long break until I revived the Rising Empires project which now has evolved into Fate of an Empire.
I must say the graphical interface, especially the map view. I’m more interested in coding behind-the-scenes stuff, what happens when you press the button and how the AI reacts to your moves. Learning to work with the visual aspects of a game was a challenge and I´m still training to improve my skills.
Peter Norberg is the sole developer of Fate of an Empire, working on it for the last year and a half, and continuously investing his free time on this wonderful app for updates and upgrades.
My all-time favorite strategy game app is Antiyoy developed by Yiotro. This is a simple but brilliant game and when I found it, I literally spent hour after hour playing through all the levels.
Another app that I’ve enjoyed a lot is 1941: World War Strategy by Brian Dewolff which brings to life the old boardgame Axis and Allies. Axis and Allies is an old favorite of mine and being able to play it while out traveling is a great joy.
But overall, I don´t have much time enjoying other games as I focus my free time on developing Fate of an Empire. Being a one-man development team doesn´t really leave much time for other stuff.
I started to work on Fate of an Empire around April 2020, and it was launched in February last year. Since then, I´ve been adding new features and improvements as I want to continue improving the game, both for the enjoyment of old players keeping their interest as well as new players seeking the thrill of a complex strategy game.
My main purpose with Fate of an Empire is to create a strategy game that rivals the most complex strategy games on PC. When I started developing games for Android the available games, especially strategy games, were simple and didn´t fulfill the need of old board game players like myself.
Fate of an Empire should fill the need of the players who seek complexity and flexibility in how they want to play. Play wide, or tall, develop your own troop types and you can even mod some aspects of Fate of an Empire if you want to change the game to suit your needs.
I don´t presume that it´s better than other strategy games, although I believe it has some perks and like to think that it might be one of the more complex and advanced strategy games on the Play store.
Each time a player asks me if I can port it to PC or it receives a rating declaring that it´s the best strategy game on the store I feel proud over what I´ve achieved with Fate of an Empire. It´s like being given a receipt that Fate of an Empire achieves what I intended when I started working on it.
This is still in the early stages but I´m now working on a map editor with the intention of allowing players to create their own maps. I´m also planning to add more events that can pop up during a game and hope that I´ll be able to create fun and challenging event chains that has a real influence on an empire.
The players also help me and come up with lots of suggestions on how to improve Fate of an Empire.
I´m just happy that they enjoy my game. Since I´m chronically bad at marketing, I would appreciate all the help I can get from my players with spreading the knowledge of Fate of an Empire.
Fate of an Empire is a deep and compelling turn-based 4x strategy game with custom troop designs, advanced combat between massive armies, a well-developed technology tree, and unlimited possibilities.
Are you prepared to take control of your own fate?
The world of Fate of an Empire consists of two levels: the Surface and the Netherworld. You are invited to roam the wild forests as the secretive Elves or dominate the green plains as the scary Humans. Inhabit the huge underworld caves of the Netherworld and take control of the rampaging Greenskins, the swarming Krant or the feared and hated unliving Ende. If you can't choose, play as the rich Dwarves which fear neither the open sky nor the darkness below.
