Iron Realms Entertainment (formerly known as Achaea LLC) is a computer game development company that has created the MUDs Achaea, Dreams of Divine Lands; Aetolia, The Midnight Age; Imperian, the Sundered Heavens; Lusternia, Age of Ascension; Tears of Polaris; and Midkemia Online. Matt Mihaly is its founder and CEO and Jeremy Saunders is its President.
Iron Realms Entertainment is currently developing two games:
- Midkemia Online, a text-based MUD game based on author Raymond E. Feist's Midkemia universe. Midkemia Online is currently in the open beta phase of testing.
- Tears of Polaris, a text-based MUD game based in a science fiction/fantasy universe.
Other games developed by Iron Realms Entertainment include
- Lusternia, a text-based MUD game set in a fantasy sword and sorcery world revolving around four city-states and two nature communes. Lusternia is operated by collecting the revenue of virtual asset sales.
- Aetolia, The Midnight Age, a roleplay-intensive text-based MUD game set in a fantasy sword and sorcery world revolving around several player-run organizations.
The Rapture Engine was created by Iron Realms Entertainment and is used by all of its MUDs, albeit heavily modified for those most recently in production.
Iron Realms Entertainment LLC was originally founded as Achaea LLC in 1996. After the release of Aetolia in 2001, Achaea LLC was renamed Iron Realms LLC.
Achaea was featured in the June 10th, 2004 episode of The Screen Savers.
