Cyberlore Studios was a developer of computer games based in Northampton, Massachusetts, United States. The company was founded by Lester Humphreys, Ken Grey, and Herb Perez. Since 1992, they produced expansion packs for MechWarrior 4, Heroes of Might and Magic II, and Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. They also produced Playboy: The Mansion (2004), a simulation game based on the life of Hugh Hefner and Playboy, and a PlayStation 2 version of the classic board game Risk. Their most notable game is Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim, whose original concept was created by Jim DuBois, who worked as a senior designer there.[1]

In 2005, Cyberlore ceased development of general entertainment games after the collapse of their publisher, Hip Games, and the subsequent layoff of 2/3 of their staff. The company refocused on the serious game corporate training market, under the new company name of Minerva.
