Crimson Leaf, the game development company, announced today that it is developing and launching the comeback of MegaWars, the classic online space strategy game.
MegaWars is the reincarnation of Mega Wars 3, played on CompuServe, and Stellar Emperor, played on GEnie, in the 1980s. The goal is to update the graphics and gameplay for a modern audience, with the elements players loved most left intact. A Massively Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MMOBA), the game is played in 30-day campaigns, culminating in an annual grand championship war.
“I was one of the original players of this game in the 80s,” said David Baity, founder and CTO of Crimson Leaf. “This game is the sole reason I learned how to become a programmer”, he added.
The current version of MegaWars is built on a Unity5 client. Crimson Leaf is currently wrapping up developer testing in AlphaXI and will be ready to release the Beta version of the game by the end of July.
“Our audience and pool of interested gamers is growing exponentially,” said Matt Parisi, CEO of Crimson Leaf. “We are preparing to launch pre-sales of the game with lucrative supporter benefits as well.”
The Crimson Leaf team will attend Gam3rCon in San Diego, California, on Friday, July 10th, to discuss the new future of MegaWars.
