Do you remember when Chronicles of Elyria raised $1.36 million on Kickstarter back in 2016 to make its highly ambitious (and so far, unfinished) MMORPG? Soulbound Studios certainly wants to keep that memory fresh in your mind with annual “Kickstarter-versaries” that also, coincidentally, raise even more money for the fantasy sandbox. The latest of these fundraising campaigns just wrapped up, and the studio wanted to thank all involved.
“Thanks to you, this was a record breaking Kickstarter-versary! You worked so hard to meet our challenge that we had to make new challenges for you,” Soulbound said. It went on to list several rewards, such as a Versary Monkey, that it will dole out to backers who have helped prop up the project.
It appears that the month’s promotion raised over $780,000 for a total of $7,730,142 collected to fund the game to date. Earlier this month, the dev team posted a pre-alpha video that focused on the soundscape of Elyria.
