Auran is an Australian video game developer and publisher based in Brisbane, Queensland. The company was established in 1995 by Greg Lane and Graham Edelsten and released its first game, Dark Reign, in 1997. Auran is also known for developing the Trainz railroad simulator series, which uses their self-developed middleware game engine Auran JET, and Fury, a PvP-based massively multiplayer online game.
In late 2005 one of Auran's founders, Greg Lane, left Auran citing it was time to move on. Greg Lane was responsible for the development of Dark Reign and Trainz. Greg Lane is now the Chief Technology Officer for MyVirtualHome (MVH). www.mvh.com.au MVH uses the Auran developed middleware engine Auran JET as the basis for their 3D home design program.
On December 13, 2007, Auran Developments, the team behind Fury, went into voluntary administration. Auran Games (the developer of the Trainz series) will continue to operate, although the majority of staff was laid off resulting in a development team of just three individuals.
