The date for Shroud of the Avatar’s final wipe has been set, with today July 28th being the last time character progress will be deleted.
The game has been in a state of soft launch for a while, with the store being open for some time. However, today’s launch of Release 32 marks the last time characters will be wiped. “Royalty” players who pledged in the thousands will have access to housing lots first, with others whose pledges include deeds having access to what’s remaining after. Details of individual access to housing lots will be outlined in each person’s account page.
The announcement comes a day after developer Portalarium held a “telethon” to gain more pledges. The funding event overall raked in $130k for the game.
The nebulous nature of any crowdfunded game includes what constitutes a launch, it seems. Soft or not, we figure that the end of character progress being reset is as good as a final product as any. Congratulations are in order for the Shroud of the Avatar team as the title goes persistent!
