Cyberdog Castle began life in 1991 as a late night Bulletin Board System (BBS). The first game released under the Cyberdog Castle name was the BBS door game, Society of the Eternal Rulers, in 1992. MetaFox registered Cyberdog Castle as a trade name in 2004.
In 2005, MetaFox registered a trade name that is a shortened form of Cyberdog Castle, Cydoca Entertainment.
Dream On MagazineEdit
Cyberdog Castle released the first issue of Dream On Magazine at the Midwest Gaming Classic in 2003. Pre-orders for a second issue of the magazine were taken in 2006, but the second issue was postponed and refunds were issued. A companion demo disc to Dream On, known as The Sandman, was created by DC Evolution and Cydoca Entertainment. Sandmenu was developed for this compilation and was first demonstrated at the first stop of Dreamcon in 2006. The first release of The Sandman also occurred in 2006. Sandmenu ultimately wasn't used in this release, but it was used in other DC Evolution compilations, such as Alice Dreams History.
Dream On ContestEdit
In 2004, the second Dream On Contest was held. No entries were entered in the professional category, but JMD won first place in the amateur game category for Nibbler, a themeable clone of the Amstrad CPC game of the same name.
The final Dream On contest took place in 2005.
In 2005, Cydoca Entertainment held the first DreamCon Dreamcast gaming convention at the East Coast Gaming Expo in Reading, Pennsylvania. The convention was held at the ECGX as the Midwest Gaming Classic was not held that year.
In 2006, due to the Midwest Gaming Classic returning, and the fact that the majority of the people who exhibited at the first DreamCon lived too far away to make the trip to Wisconsin, the convention was split into two parts. The first part was held at the Magfest in Virginia, and the second convention was held at the Midwest Gaming Classic in Wisconsin.
In 2007, Curt Grymala hosted the DreamCon Dreamcast Gaming Convention at the Magfest in Virginia. The show was on hiatus until its tenth anniversary in 2015, when it was once again hosted by Cydoca Entertainment, at the Con on the Cob in Ohio.
