Paragon Software Corporation, based in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, was founded in 1985 by Mark E. Seremet and F. J. Lennon. The company's biggest successes were titles based on licenses from Marvel Comics and Game Designers' Workshop.
Paragon had a long relationship with MicroProse Software, who had distributed their games since at least 1988. MicroProse acquired Paragon outright in July, 1992. As part of MicroProse, the Paragon team developed Challenge of the Five Realms and BloodNet. Soon after, many of the former Paragon principals moved on to co-found or work for Take-Two Interactive, and what was once Paragon ceased to exist.
