Richard "Lord British" Garriott, inventor of the Ultima games and MMORPG's Shroud of the Avatar, is actively working on the story of the indie role-playing game Corven: Path of Redemption with and his alter ego even appearing in-game.
With Corven: Path of Redemption The indie studio Lycantic is working on a single-player role-playing game based on the Ultima series. Now the developers said that Ultima inventor Richard "Lord British" Garriott is involved in the story and his alter ego even appears in the game.
A modern Ultima with Lord British
Corven: Path of Redemption wants to create a gaming experience inspired by 1992's Ultima 7, but using modern graphics. The story, a living world, interesting NPCs and exciting quests are in the foreground. The RPG is currently in an early stage of development and Spring 2020 is not just a Kickstarter campaign, but also a demo release. Lord British plays a very big and important role in the story. The story was even developed in collaboration with Richard Garriott, who allowed the team to perform his alter ego in the world.
The community of the MMORPG Shroud of the Avatar now wonders what that means. Richard Garriott was supposed to write the episode 2 story of the online role-playing game, even when he's no longer CEO of the company. Does he care about other projects, now that SotA has not become the hoped-for success? SotA opponents on the other hand even smell already a conspiracy and suppose that the development studio of Shroud of the Avatar could be behind Corven. Lycantic, however, consists of a small team of single-player and Ultima fans who have nothing to do with Portalarium, respectively Catnip Games, as the developers assured us on demand.
