Coin Operated Games has released a new story trailer for their upcoming Empyre Lords Of The Sea Gates!
This game tells the tale of a troubled New York, near the end of the 19th Century. The city is experiencing the tail-end of a technological and industrial boom, nothing the world has ever seen. The population grows to over 5 million. New York becomes one of the biggest and most advanced cities in the world. Now comes the Great Flood of 1899. The city becomes flooded under raging waters, with no one knowing where the water came from. Citizens now face a real world, 2017 problem, there is no water to drink!
Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates features an original story penned by renowned writer/comic artist Paul Noth, a staff cartoonist for The New Yorker magazine, where his work has appeared regularly since 2004. He created the Emmy-nominated animated series “Pale Force” for Late Night with Conan O’Brien and was animation consultant for Saturday Night Live. He’s also developed shows for Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Nickelodeon, and his trilogy of middle-grade novels will be published by Bloomsbury, starting in April of 2018 with “How to Sell Your Family to the Aliens.”
In the game, players will experience a New York City that has been divided into several varying City States, all vying for control of the city. There’s a colorful cast of characters to encounter – some will be your allies and some will be rivals – as you make your way across New York in an effort to discover a solution to the city’s new water problem, as the fresh water pipes running to the city have mysteriously stopped flowing.
