On Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018, Michael Sean Kane organized and hosted a Shroud of the Avatar Launch Review with special guest, Lord British himself, Richard Garriott. The event took place at the Dave & Buster’s, a full-service restaurant and video arcade, on 42nd Street in Manhattan, NY.
There were a couple of dozen people in attendance, including members of the Ultima Dragons Internet Chapter, an internet- based social club whose members share a common interest in the Utlima series of computer role playing games by Garriott, as well as long time players of the pre-release versions of Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues.
Shroud of the Avatar began as a Kickstarter project which successfully funded on April 7th, 2013. After almost five years in development, it was officially released on March 27th, 2018. Kickstarter and other early backers were able to get early access to prerelease versions of the game for quite some time now. While I was a Kickstarter backer way back in 2013, I just recently installed the released version and starting playing.
