CIRCLE EMPIRES LAUNCH TRAILER
Haarlem, the Netherlands, July 19, 2018 – Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Luminous announce that their PC and MacOS RTS game Circle Empires will release August 8th through Steam and major digital retailers, at an impulse price of $7.99.
The Circle Empires universe consists of interconnected circles, each containing loot to plunder and foes to be defeated. Players take the role of the god-like leader of a tiny kingdom, hungry for power. Using guile and strategic prowess, gamers must hunt down increasingly powerful foes and expand their territory.
Circle Empires features 18 playable factions, 12 enemy boss monsters, and 150+ different creatures, buildings and resources. The game is procedurally generated, meaning no two playthroughs are ever the same.
Circle Empires started life as a small demo on Game Jolt, which was picked up by over 165,000 strategy fans – since then it has blossomed into a fully-fledged Real-Time Strategy game, with completely overhauled art and countless new features.
In addition, the game will support the following languages upon release: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Turkish, Czech, Polish and Estonian.
Budding Circle Conquerors can wishlist the game on Steam now.

Luminous is an Estonian indie game company founded by developer Mihkel Trei. He's been developing games since 2002 and got the idea of Circle Empires from a famous graphic designer who said "Always start a design by drawing a circle".
In 2016, Luminous partnered with Edvin Aedma, a developer on the Estonian indie hit Teleglitch: Die More Edition. Together, they decided to involve two more Estonian indie dev companies run by Edvin: Interactive Fate, to create a complete overhaul of all Circle Empires graphics, and Playtest Games, to ensure smooth production of the entire project.
