Seize power and build an empire of fuzzy cellular automata monsters!
Inspired by Conway’s Game of Life, Automata Empire challenges you to herd hundreds of mindless automata subjects to smash your rivals’ castles and steal their territory. While your loyal subjects lack individual intelligence, you can sacrifice them to build chains of taverns and roads to impose order on chaos. Ready to invade? Build some high-velocity catapults to launch your minions directly into battle. Balance expansion and consolidation carefully to grow your empire into enemy territory and gain dominance over the toroid. Or cleverly engineer feedback loops to surprise your opponents with overwhelming force.
Five Gameplay Modes
Siegecraft – lay siege to foreign strongholds while surrounding your own castle with a maze of defenses
Migration – battle for the last habitable land as you flee from an unstoppable horde of undead
Capture the Banner – sneak troops into the enemy base to steal their flag… but herding it back to your base is harder than it looks
King of the Plateau – secure your sovereign right to territory by flooding it with as many of your subjects as possible
WAAAAAR!! – wage plain old deathmatch warfare
Singleplayer and Online Multiplayer*
Battle 3 friends in all 5 game modes and practice your foreign diplomacy: forge alliances and then conveniently forget them at the most inconvenient times >_>

Short, Satisfying Matches
