Dreamlords was acquired for North American release in July 2008 by Aeria Games and Entertainment. A German version of the game was published by gamigo in July 2007. The game was re-launched in July 2008 with new features and the new sub-title "The Re-Awakening". Dreamlords The Re-Awakening closed on November 2, 2010 to make way for beta testing and the release of Dreamlords the Resurrection.
Dreamlords the Resurrection ran until September 28, 2011 when it was closed down.
In the web-based game, players are given a section of land under their control. Tasks such as founding cities, researching technologies, building structures, and engaging in trade are accomplished through the web interface.
With a downloaded client, the Dreamlords client functions similar to a real-time strategy game. The client is used primarily to fight battles and do quests.
