"Miranda was a Jewel. For twenty thousand seasons she was the seat of supreme power in The Imperial Realm. Until the Emperor burned her. Fool. But from the ash, the Emperor's Ridiil discovered something unexpected. Something immensely valuable. But the secret was not to be kept for long. Not even long enough for the Emperor to act. The race to retake Miranda and control its incalculable fortune was already underway."
- Excerpt from Chronicles of The Imperial Realm 29,600-31,200 Y.O.E.

The Imperial Realm::Miranda

Hi, I'm Rob from Secret Lair Games.

I used to play a lot of Command And Conquer co-op multiplayer with my friends. When World of Warcraft came out in 2004 I was amazed by its huge world and immediately thought how fun it would be to play an RTS in a giant seamless open world like that.

I thought surely someone would make that game soon, so I went to work at Electronic Arts as a lead online programmer for Medal of Honor: Heroes, Need for Speed, Madden NFL Football, FIFA Soccer, The Sims and others.

In 2009 I had the opportunity to start working on a new game so I chose one I was passionate about. It took seven years and an enormous amount of work, but now The Imperial Realm::Miranda is ready for more players. Amazingly, in all that time, nobody else has made an open world RTS.

Now I need help to make Miranda the best game it can be. I need players to play the game, to participate in the community, and offer feedback and suggestions so together we can move the game in the right direction.

If you think a huge open world multiplayer RTS sounds like something you'd like to play, I hope you will support The Imperial Realm::Miranda.

What is The Imperial Realm::Miranda?

The Imperial Realm::Miranda is a massively multiplayer real-time strategy (MMORTS) game in the tradition of Command and ConquerTM. Build a base and field a fighting force either by yourself, or with your friends, in an all-out war to dominate Miranda, the devastated former capital planet of The Imperial Realm.

Planned Features

Additional features will depend on feedback from players.

Early Access Game

This game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see what the game becomes.

Risks & Challenges

With The Imperial Realm::Miranda, the goal is to create a new kind of video game. Video game development is difficult under the best of circumstances, but creating something new means that the problems are not always easy to predict.

The good news though, is that Miranda has been under development for seven years on a shoestring budget, with just a single developer working as efficiently as possible to create the software, art, audio and bugs. During that time, hundreds of deliverables have been created from nothing in order to build the game you see today.

Even after all that work, there are some key features that are scheduled to be completed during Early Access. Once those core features are complete, the Alpha and Beta testing phases will allow us to polish the game and catch any remaining bugs.

Miranda is playable now for up to 50 simultaneous players and is designed to scale to many more, but there remain a number of difficult technical challenges to overcome in order to achieve the goal of a single shared world for everyone.

Before starting work on Miranda, Rob worked on 36 other games for PC, Sony PSP and Nintendo Wii, and ran an independent software development business for 16 years.

It's not enough just to be new and different, you have to also be great, and that's the overarching goal for Miranda. While one developer can take a game so far, ultimately it requires a diverse group of dedicated, talented people to make the best game possible. With your help, we're confident we can deliver.
