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.
