Description

Secret Lair Games, Inc. is building The Imperial Realm::Miranda, a massively multiplayer real-time strategy game in the tradition of Command and Conquer.

History

About the Developer

Robert Basler released his first game, Space Mines, in 1981. It was built for the Ohio Scientific Superboard II and featured spectacular 80x25 black and white ASCII art and frenetic gameplay. Later, Robert worked on the multiplayer tech for 30+ Electronic Arts titles for the PSP, the Nintendo Wii and PC including franchises like Medal of Honor, Need for Speed, FIFA Soccer and Madden NFL Football.

The Imperial Realm::Miranda

Rob spent many evenings playing Command and Conquer Red Alert 2 multiplayer LAN games with his friends, but over the years they all moved to distant cities. When World of Warcraft came out, he had the idea of bringing the group back together by combining massively multiplayer gameplay with the frenetic strategy and action of the RTS genre. In 2009, work started on "MMO-1" as Miranda was known at that time. Over the next nine years, work continued on the Lair Engine, quietly building art, rendering, networking, audio, UI, patching, accounting, tools, gameplay and a hundred other systems. His progress is documented on his blog "The One Man MMO Project."
