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.[1] 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.[2]

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.
