Richard Garriott’s ‘Shroud of the Avatar’ Raises Over $3 Million Through Crowd-Funding Efforts

Richard Garriott and his development studio Portalarium have managed to raise another $1 million for his new online role-playing game Shroud of the Avatar. The original Kickstarter campaign for the game in 2013 managed to rake in around $1.9 million by its close – but like Chris Roberts' Kickstarter for Star Citizen, Garriott and company have continued to collect funding via the game's website. Combing the original $1.9 million with donations through the web site, Shroud of the Avatar has managed to raise a respectable $3,038,484.

It only took 4445 backers to raise the additional $1,119,209 via the game's website. It took 22,322 people to raise the $1,919,275 Kickstarter sum.

Shroud of the Avatar is set for a full release this fall, on PC (Windows, Linux, and Mac). Early adopters have been given access to the game already.

    …and now, he'll fly into space again, abandon all development efforts, then complain when the game launches to be a dismal failure.

    Just like his last game.
