One man, one MMORTS, one early access release

After seven years of development by a man named Robert Basler, The Imperial Realm: Miranda has finally released into early access.

Miranda was inspired by Command & Conquer and offers real-time strategy base building and battles between hordes of players. The game has been made on a shoestring budget and is charging $25 for those who want to participate in the early access period. If you like the game, that fee is a good deal, as it offers unlimited play from now until the end of time (or the game’s lifespan). Miranda is aiming to launch in May 2018.

“”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 open world like that,” Basler said in a press release. “I never imagined it would take 13 years for someone to make that game, or that I’d be the one to do it.”
