Time Empire (タイムエンパイア) is a role-playing game developed by Koei.


The game takes place in Japan's Edo Period where the protagonist is sent by the Time Patrol to thwart temporal anomalies caused by the Time Empire. Before beginning the game, players will be asked to adjust their stats based on strength, dexterity, constitution, and life. Commands are limited to moving and acting.

Open exploration is a key feature in this game. NPCs can be spoken to, recruited, or fought against. Enemies include ninja and rōnin. Because of the game's difficulty, hidden codes have been added for the player's convenience.

Resurrection - Highlight the data disk option on the menu screen, then tap F1, F2, F3 and the space bar simultaneously.
Status Up - During camp mode, tap 1, 3, 5, and 7 simultaneously.
