With four times the staff than it had at this time last year, Soulbound Studios is going full-steam on Chronicles of Elyria and all of its pre-alpha projects. To make the business environment fun and keep employees in an MMO mindset, teams have been formed to go on various project “adventures.” It’s partially because, as the devs admit, they are nerds.
The current adventure teams were revealed and their tasks detailed, including designing a horse mount, drawing up dossiers for all of the Twelve Tribes, wrangling assets, getting the game to work with SpatialOS, and improving the web experience. There’s even a team that is currently trying to get jumping right, a job that’s compounded by Chronicles of Elyria’s desire to make race and weight a factor in your hippity-hops.
“A Kypiq and a Yoru will not be able to jump the same height, nor will a fit person versus an overweight person,” the studio said.
Soulbound Studios also announced that it just hired on a new community support lead, Adam Vener. Vener ran a game server company and has handled large online communities in his career.
