(Generic Empire for The Masses)

GEMpire is a simple turn based multiplayer strategy game, written in java, designed to be played over the internet in client-server fashion. It is a generalization of the commercial game Empire Deluxe for the PC. It consists mainly of a server, a client, a map editor, and a random map generator.

It is currently ready for playtesting. If you would like to help me with that, please email me at

As it is written in java, it should run on any platform java runs on. I developed most of it under Windows, then switched to Linux toward the end. I am currently using the Blackdown port of java 2, version 1.3.0.
