'Impire' Trailer Promises The Latest Entry In Metal-Friendly Demon Management Games

The upcoming PC strategy title from Paradox Interactive and developer Cyanide Studio gets an announcement trailer. Enter the gates of hell to watch.

(Or, just, you know, check it out after the cut.)

Coming off with an "Overlord" riff (which, by the way is apparently out of print along with its sequel for the 360), "Impire" is the latest from Cyanide Studio Montreal (whose European branch was responsible for the much-maligned "Game of Thrones" RPG), and if absurd, dark fantasy humor is your thing, it might be worth checking out, even if the last major title bearing the Cyanide name didn't fare so well.

From the official synopsis:

Deep in the underworld of Ardania, a threat of the most evil nature grows and multiplies with an appetite for destruction that is unsurpassed. Summoned from the depths of the Bottomless Pit, the (once) mighty Báal-Abaddon has been torn from his throne of skulls and imprisoned in an earthly body of less-than-imposing stature (he's an Imp, OK?) to serve the none-too-competent sorcerer Oscar van Fairweather. But unfortunately for Fairweather, the luck of the damned is on Báal's side and he soon breaks free to build his own dark and majestic... Impire.

In Impire, you take control the of demon Báal-Abaddon as he attempts to rebuild his mighty hell spawn form. With the aid of dozens of evil creatures big and small as well as an arsenal of spells, you will help him construct a dungeon underworld of limitless evil and nastiness to stop all those pesky Heroes of Ardania from ruining his return to greatness!

"Impire" will be available sometime during Q1 of this year.
