So how's that $1.9 million funded Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues project coming along? It's like these past 3 months have been covered, or perhaps shrouded, in mystery. Richard Garriott breaks silence.
In an 11-minute HD video update we get to see just what Portalarium Inc. has been up to as they cover travelling, exploration in towns and dungeons, crafting, dialogue and more.
The footage is of a fully functioning prototype they have of the game, which hit a significant milestone Jul 6th as they demoed it at RTX 2013.
They ask us to remember that the RPG is still "very, very early" in development and so all the visuals and effects are meagre at best - it's all still in the "embryonic phase." Lord British himself narrates the HD demo, covering:
◾Crafting & Recipes
◾Decorating Your House (a Knight's Keep)
◾Full Sentence Conversations
"For the sake of brevity, travel shortcuts were used to expedite movement from area to area," they say. Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues is Richard Garriott's return to his fantasy RPG roots, after having created Ultima. To find out more about the project's particulars you should visit the .
