Impire sounds a bit Dungeon Keeper-y

When a game vaguely resembling Dungeon Keeper is announced, we often lose control of our mental faculties and get in a tizzy hoping it'll come close to Bullfrog's glorious dungeon management strategy-sim. They never do. So listen with interest but keep your cool for Paradox Interactive's announcement of Impire, an dungeon 'em up made by Blood Bowl and A Game of Thrones developer Cyanide.

Yes, as a mighty demon trapped in the body of a puny imp, you'll have to build and manage a fine dungeon. You design your dungeon's layout, as in That Game We Miss Sorely, with different rooms and traps and whatnot. And, of course, you have to raise and power-up an army of darkness. It's set in the same universe as the Majesty series, if that means anything to you.

Along with a campaign playable in single-player or co-op, Impire offers several multiplayer modes.

Impire is slated to launch for PC in the first quarter of 2013.
