Maid Marian – Modernizing MMO Gaming with ‘Sherwood Dungeon’

Gene Endrody, CEO of Maid Marian Entertainment Inc., has a clear vision for keeping his best known title, Sherwood Dungeon, current and viable by bringing a 3D, multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPGs) to your web browser with the help of Adobe Flash Player.

Using the hardware acceleration enabled by the Stage3D APIs in Flash Player running in the browser, the team at Maid Marian was able to modernize Sherwood Dungeon to feature top-of- the-line visuals and responsive game play. By deploying the game in the browser, Maid Marian can now expand the revenue potential for Sherwood Dungeon as it can now be distributed through game portals that only support Adobe Flash® technology. Currently, Sherwood Dungeon is enjoyed by up to 3,000 social gamers simultaneously and more than one million unique players globally each month, attributable in part to the wide reach of the Flash Player on over 1.2 billion connected desktops.

The Maid Marian team looks to the future of the Adobe Gaming technologies and expanding their opportunity to grow their audience. “Marrying the ubiquity of Flash with GPU-accelerated graphics,” continues Endrody, “elevates the potential of browser-based games. We can now take on the big publishers with something small, independent, and disruptive.”  Read more from Endrody here: http://adobe.ly/RajbRM.
