Imperial Empire SE is an online, browser based, multiplayer, space strategy game based on Solar Empire, as originally conceived by Brian Livingston. Imperial Empire SE is a reimagined, modern take on the game, aiming to improve stability and usability across multiple devices.

The aim of the game is to build up your economy, establish your forces, and found your empire whilst allying with, or destroying, your opponents or friends! Multiple rounds can take place at the same time, each with their own unique set of rules and options allowing for a variety of gameplay styles

So, Captain, are you ready?


Lost PasswordsOct 18th 2018

I recently noticed that there was a fault in the Lost Password system which was preventing it from sending out the recovery emails to those who requested it. First of all, my apologies about that, and for it taking so long for me to realise. I believe the fault occurred due to a server migration that took place in August. The good news though is that this system has been repaired, tested and is now fully operational once again.

Server activity is down once again and I know there's more I could do to keep it going, but I just haven't had the time or motivation (I remind myself more and more of Moriarty and Maugrim_The_Reaper). I hope one day to add to this project in a way that will make it enjoyable, even with low numbers of players.

Hosting MigrationNov 7th 2017

A quick update to let you know that finally the domain is auto-renewing correctly so there's no random downtime at last. But we're at that point where the server hardware is being made obsolete and we will be migrating to some shiny new ones.

The aim is for minimal downtime and there should be zero impact on the game itself for once, due it's modern nature - some of you will remember the hacks that went into place to get the game to run properly on previous upgrades.
