Hey guys, I apologize in advance if I messed this up but it's my first thread, blah blah blah. Anyway, I'm not the creator of this game, but I saw it mentioned on Reddit and checked it out and it's pretty fun but I couldn't find any mention of it, like, anywhere on the Internet so I wanted to make a thread for it here so that it could get more exposure! It's a text-based resource management game in the style of A Dark Room/The Ensign, but of course, like those games, the real fun is in the story, world, and atmosphere. I'm not gonna spoil anything but it's a fully-realized science fantasy with multiple endings.

Hi! I'm the creator of Nano Empire.

Thank you objectsobjects for your kind post; it has brought me more downloads than ever before!

I would be glad to answer any questions about the game. My email is jsenter.games@gmail.com and my Twitter account is @jamesksenter. I'll post any updates here. I'm currently working on a web version, and then I have some new content planned. Maybe at some point I'll even do a design-your-own-location contest!

I just got to say this is a fantastic game. Plays a lot like A Dark Room and The Ensign, games which I love.

So simple but pulls you in. I like the random attacks and having to always be prepared. It's got a sort of clicker game mixed in with attacking.

Fantastic. I don't know if I'm in the minority but I've had a hard time putting this down. It's all menu based and that may put some people off. But being free you'd be doing yourself a disservice if you don't give this a try. You might be pleasantly surprised!

Wanted to let everyone know that this is the last week for Nano Empire to be free, and then it will be $0.99. However, I did just launch the web version which will be permanently free: http://www.kongregate.com/games/jsenter/nano-empire

I picked this game up after seeing TouchArcade advertise it. For a buck you can't go wrong. On my second play through. Like Ensign meets clicker with small RPGish elements (stat and production upgradability) at the fraction of the pics of a Starbucks coffee, it will provide you far more entertainment and spare you the after taste of flat beer mixed with cigarette bucks that only Starbucks can provide.

Give it a shot

I have had this on my wl for awhile, after reading the TA article about how this game has audio support how could I not buy it right now? Major kudos to the dev for thinking about gamers with visual impairment.

Games like this really annoy me, solely for the fact they lack publicity (not faulting the second) and are often overlooked. I wish it didn't take me a year to come across this gem, I hope the developer sees some traction from the TA post.
