Video Interview with Richard Garriott and Starr Long Re: Shroud of the Avatar

shroud-of-the-avatarI was extremely fortunate (and hopefully didn’t fangirl too much) to meet both Richard Garriott and Starr Long of Ultima and Ultima Online fame at E3 this year.  The two are working on a new project with Garriott’s company, Portalarium, called Shroud of the Avatar – which is being called the spiritual successor to Ultima Online.

Shroud of the Avatar was successfully funded by Kickstarter last year and Portalarium continues their funding effort with an ongoing pledge system on their website, all the while allowing backers to test each play release for a weekend when that release is available.

The gentlemen were nice enough to squeeze us into a time slot at their booth to answer a few questions by fans of Shroud of the Avatar.  Enjoy the video below!

Plantronics Gaming Giving Away Early Access to Shroud of the Avatar

splashScreenA little over a year ago, Richard Garriott, with Portalarium, launched a Kickstarter for the spiritual successor to Ultima and Ultima Online, called Shroud of the Avatar.  The project was funded and continues to gather funding and followers through their website.  With more than $4.25 million raised thus far for the game, it’s not a surprise that Portalarium has teamed up with a number of companies, including Plantronics Gaming, to spread the word about their game.

Richard Garriott, Starr Long and other members of the Portalarium team were at E3 to talk about Shroud of the Avatar – we will have a video interview later.  But post E3, Plantronics announced a give away for Early Access to Shroud of the Avatar.

If you aren’t a backer and are interested in learning more about the game, try your hand at a chance to win one of 1,000 early access keys.

The first 1,000 people to sign up get a key.  Best of luck!  Look forward to our interview later this week.
