I've done a lot of work on Empire Rising these last couple of months, Ive made various improvements to it but the biggest work was getting the real time combat working. With this all the planned gameplay features are in. What remains is a ton of polishing and fine tuning (and replacing placeholder assets) but this is a big milestone reached.
Here is a video I made while playing a 1v1 game. If you want to try it out you can play it at empirerising.net (I apologize we still do not have a tutorial)
