iEntertainment Network


Interactive Magic was founded in 1994 by former MicroProse founder "Wild" Bill Stealey. The company was taken public in 1998, and had its name changed to iEntertainment Network in 1999. It is based in Cary, a suburb of Raleigh, North Carolina.

The company focused on Military Simulations initially and then bought two Internet companies, MPG Net (casual online games) and in 1997 Interactive Creations Inc.(iCi) (known for WarBirds, an online WW2 combat flight game). Other games in their portfolio include war games such as North vs. South and their The Great Battles series.

In February 2000 iEntertainment created iWireless Games, a subsidiary to focus on the emerging wireless games industry. On 7th April 2003, it was announced that iEntertainment Network's corporate status had been changed to 'privately held' to add more value for their stockholders.

In November 2006, iEntertainment released the retail game Flyboys Squadron, a World War I combat flight simulator based upon the MGM movie Flyboys.

The company continues to develop and release additional games in their Total Simulations Series. This brand includes simulators for aircraft, tanks and other vehicles from World War I through the end of World War II for the PC and Macintosh platforms. The latest game for that series is WarBirds 2014 released in January 2014.

IENT continues to improve all its current games including WarBirds, M4 Tank Brigade, IENT Outdoors Unlimited. IENT is also now developing mobile outdoors hunting games with first release expected in the fall of 2014.
