Morning Links: Impire announced (Get it? It’s about an Imp Empire), is a Dungeon Keeper-type thing, Prison Architect preview, Spelunky playable in browsers

Impire Announced by Paradox 

I somehow missed this a few days ago, buy Paradox and Cyanide Studios have announced Impire, an upcoming Dungeon Keeper-like that will allow players to “[r]un your Impire by defending against heroes invading a personalized demonic compound while also sending underlings to the surface to wreak chaos among those who call the land near your Impire home. Utilizing a vast array of minions, deadly traps, and a growing arsenal of wicked spells, players will guide the demon Báal-Abaddon to his rightful place atop the skulls of his mortal foes… just as soon as they can help him escape the body of a pathetic little imp,” according to the press release, which seems just a little dramatic, I think. Also promised are customizable minions with equipment and whatnot, customizable magic item card decks (waiting for the ability to buy packs of them with real money), user-designed levels, and solo and co-op play. I loved Dungeon Keeper 2 so much and I can’t believe it has taken this long to get a decent clone of it. Hoping that this will be the one.

PC Gamer Prison Architect Preview

Introversion has consistently produced some pretty amazing games over the past several years, including Uplink  and Darwinia. As such, I was quite pleased to see PC Gamer has posted a preview (albeit a short one) of the upcoming Prison Architect, which will – well – allow you to build a prison. Also, following Introversion’s tweets about the bugs is pretty fantastic (Example: “Escaping prisoners run in a hilariously organised line towards the gates“).
