That appears to be the original credits from Realm. Maybe the game is essentially the same as when we released it? I recognize most of the names.
I had forgotten about Steve Nichols. My recollection is that he was an engineer, not a designer. He must have taken over both the technical lead, and creative lead position from David Slaybeck.
The Realm was a technologic breakthrough for its time. It needed an engineer to lead it more than a creative person, as every design detail had network ramifications.
