Impire review

Cassandra Khaw at

Impire is not Dungeon Keeper. It’s important you remember that. Although peopled – or imped, if you will – by long-eared, razor-toothed denizens, this RTS-meets-dungeon-simulator is less about running an evil underground empire than middle management in the lower echelons of a slow-witted, weight-watching hell.

I assume they’re weight-watchers, anyway. Certainly none of your minions seems to want to eat of their own volition. No one seems to want to do anything on their own. Your creatures can spend days gallivanting past the fetid innards of the local kitchen without so much as a second glance inside, or acknowledgment of the fact that they’ve starved themselves into impotency.
