Iron Realms Entertainment

  • San Francisco, CA, USA


Iron Realms Entertainment is the leading developer of both text MUDs/MMORPGs (text adventure games), with over a decade's experience of successfully producing text games beloved by players around the world.

Known formerly as Achaea LLC, Iron Realms was founded in 1996 by its CEO, Matt Mihaly, with the goal of producing high quality, text-based MUDs (or MMOs if you prefer) using a business model it pioneered - virtual asset sales.

* IRE opened its first text game -- Achaea, Dreams of Divine Lands -- in 1997 and has gone on to become the most successful developer of new text based online games in the world.

* In 2001, Iron Realms opened its second MUD -- Aetolia, the Midnight Age -- to immediate success and followed that with its third text adventure game, Imperian, Sundered Heavens, in April 2003. Both quickly entered the ranks of the foremost MUDs in the world and continue to maintain that status today.

* In 2004, Iron Realms launched its fourth MUD, Lusternia, Age of Ascension, in late 2004. It became an instant hit in the world of text games and is continually ranked in the top 10, like all Iron Realms text games.

* In December of 2009, Iron Realms released Midkemia Online, a text MUD based on works of NY Times best-selling author Raymond E. Feist.
