'Forge Of Empires' Details Art And Design - Screens

Forge of Empires is a browser-based strategy game that lets you create your own city and accompany it from the beginning of the Stone Age onward throughout the centuries.

In Forge Of Empires players will have the chance to build and lead an entire empire through the centuries and write the history of mankind. Build structures typical of the epoch. Enlarge your sphere of influence through military campaigns and skillful dealings. With a powerful army and the right tactics, you will subjugate your enemies and forge a vast empire.

The Flash-Based 3D Graphics of the game are based on a naturalistic style, and present players an accurate and believable world by focusing on details and remaining close to reality.

“We aimed at creating a world that feels authentic to players,” explains Tobias Dunz, Forge of Empires’ Lead Artist. “Which doesn’t mean to force oneself to remain historically accurate all the time, but rather to keep in mind that this world and the buildings within it could really have existed.” Forge of Empires keeps away from comic-like exaggerations; a muted color palette with targeted visual highlights keep the graphics appealing without being too uniform: “We did not want a style that seems sterile or plain. Thus we toyed around a lot with the geometry and shapes of the games’ various ages. Additionally, we paid a lot of attention to details,” says Dunz. Structurally complex and detailed buildings and dozens of animations allow curious players to continually discover new aspects of their city. The Graphic Artists’ main tools for creating Forge of Empires were 3D Studio Max, Maya and Cinema 4D.
