Impire sounds a bit Dungeon Keeper-y

Paradox Interactive has announced Impire, a dungeon management strategy game from Cyanide Studio which sounds like it's taking more than a few cues from Dungeon Keeper.

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.

      I'm down for anything resembling DK. Does anyone remember Startopia? That was amazing, just needed more missions.

          I've had it running on W7, I don't remember what I had to do, but it is possible.

        I'm not sure if I'm down for anything resembling DK. Didn't particularly care for the demo of Kalypso's Dungeons.

          Dungeons was more of a tower defense dressed in dungeon management sim sauce.

      From the developers of the Game Of Thrones titles? That automatically raises alarm bells since I recall both of those were mediocre....
