A small gaming company is making a lot of noise in my local area. Empire Games rose out of a group of friends who simply have a lot of gaming ideas they want to share. In the interest of full disclosure, I know these guys and went to college with some of them. Some I used to game with quite a bit. When I found out that they were starting a gaming company, I was surprised they had the guts to do it, but not surprised because I know these guys love games, know games and know how to make games.
