Lucid Sight, the developer behind MLB Champions and Crypto Space Commander, has acquired Colyseus, taking over the brand and open-source engine.
Colyseus is an open-source multiplayer game engine, currently utilized by games like Raft Wars, Tosios, Party Toons, and more, including some of Lucid Sight's own games.
Lucid Sight will be launching a cloud service to further support developers who are using Colyseus, and the service's creator Endel Dreyer will be joining the Lucid Sight team.
The cloud-hosted version, called Colyseus Arena, will launch later this month.
Lucid Sight CEO Randy Saaf said in a press release that Colyseus Arena will be the "first multiplayer server engine that can be deployed without a networking engineer," and that he wants the service to democratize multiplayer game server engines.
In 2019, Lucid Sight secured a $6 million investment to expand its flagship games, in addition to launching the Scarcity Engine toolset, intended to "bridge the gap between blockchain and traditional gaming platforms."
