One thought on “Changelog Rising Empires 2”

  1. I have just seen this now, played this a long time ago but it didn’t update to work in the newer android version. So imagine my delight when I saw that there is a Rising Empires 2!

    But there’s only one thing I wish would come in the next update. An extended unit description, since I really like that you can describe the unit you created but felt really sad because it is very limited.

    Don’t stop pursuing your dreams, even if they end up changing along the way!
