Dragon Lords was a highly popular mobile game launched in 2011 by Mighty Dragon Studios. It enjoyed huge success between 2011 and 2015, with over 1 million downloads on iOS and Android. At it's peak thousands of players were logging on and enjoying the game daily.
The original publishers of the game retired and closed down the game to pursue other things after player numbers dwindled but a number of diehard fans of the game gathered on a Facebook group with the intention of bringing it back to life. MDS released the source code to them so that this could happen.
The game fell out of favour originally for a number of reasons, including lack of new features in recent years and mechanics that excluded new players. The group behind the rebirth believes that they understand those problems and is addressing them with the intention of bringing back and extending the large vibrant community that the game once enjoyed.
The development effort for this rebirth is being led by a long time player/professional developer known on the game as Silverdom.
The Dragon Lords Community
There are three websites supporting the rebirth of the game.
- The Dragon Lords Forever Facebook group is a good place to connect with old players and ask for tips about playing the game.
- The Dragon Lords Reborn subreddit is the place to see what has changed lately, report game bugs and discuss/suggest new ideas for the game.
- The Dragon Lords Reborn Patreon page is the place to go if you would like more information about the rebirth project/to offer your support.
