The Simutronics web site at www.play.net is
developed entirely in-house using core technologies developed
by the company that include billing, message

marketing tracking systems. Most of our games are

The company's flagship products are its fantasy role-playing
titles, which dominate the market for MUD-style games. Based
on Simutronics' proprietary Interactive Fiction Engine (IFE),
these games support a dynamic, ever-changing game world where
each player has an impact on the world and where an incredibly
talented staff of GameMasters add new features daily. The
games are positioned in the high end of the market, where
players are seeking an advanced, robust role-playing experience,
and are designed for years of play value.
The longest running multiplayer game in the world, GemStone IV is enormously popular and

SimuCon convention which takes place
in the St. Louis area each year.
Other IFE-based products are DragonRealms,
a spinoff from GemStone, Alliance

Age of mythology, and Modus

Released on Facebook in October 2010 and Kongregate in February 2011, it has been described by PC Gamer magazine as "one of the most popular and interesting games on Facebook."
Simutronics has versatility in a variety of markets, releasing the game Tiny Heroes for the iPhone/iOS market in 2011, and its sequel One Epic Knight in 2012, both of which soared to the top of the charts soon after release.
