    “What do you make of Shroud of the Avatar? Is it worth backing?”

    Personally I don’t think so. He was the “king” back when Ultima was great but today not so much. His latest projects has been utter crap.

    I would not back this project and have no faith that it will be any good.

    I backed this project. It looks very promising and it takes Richard back to his ‘roots’. I didn’t experience his latest projects (I heard Tabula Rasa was crap) so I’m willing to give him another opportunity. And the fact that he and the team listen to backer input should deliver a game which most people will be fond of although it won’t turn into an MMO. But we’ll be able to own a house again. ^^

    Isnt this game guy that almost brought NC Soft to its knees with that failed MMO Tabula Rasa?

    @3: Yup, he was one of the former Ultima designers, who were partially working on Tabula Rasa. Although the whole story about who’s responsible for the failure is very, well, obscure. In the end both parties tried to cut each others throats at the court, so… yeah.
    But aside from that, it’s also the guy, who created the Ultima series and I’m guessing, that’s what ppl want from him. A good Ultima game.

    Great. Not only is the guy a multi-millionaire, but now you have shit like this:

    I hold every backer of that Kickstarter individually responsible. You suck!

    Jesus, that guy is a cock. Not only that but why is a multi-millionaire using kickstarter? Hasn’t he got a vintage car he can borrow against or something? Kind of beats the idea of kickstarter which is helping the little guy get a great idea off the ground, not fund a millionaires wet dream hit the sheets.

    “I’ve met virtually no one…who I think is close to as good a game designer as I am.”


    So this Shroud of the Avatar, is it some kind of iPhone game?

    @6 The guy spent 30 million dollars of his own money to visit the international space station, but he’d sure appreciate it if you could spare 25 dollars to make his new game.
