Chronicles of Elyria restores forums and gives parkour demo to all backers

Even as former Chronicles of Elyria backers struggle to get refunds, the sole remaining figure of Soulbound Studio says that development of the troubled MMO is still going forward… somehow.

In an uncharacteristically short post, CEO Jeromy Walsh said that “much work has been done” but the game isn’t ready for release. Ahem. More information is forthcoming: “We have decided to start a series of video posts where we can discuss and show you the state of development — what’s done, what’s not done, and what needs to be improved before it’s ready for release; as well as share our plans for moving forward.”

As for right now, Soulbound Studio is giving the community some scraps by reactivating a read-only version of the forums, making transaction history available, and handing out the Trial of the Tested parkour demo to all backers, regardless of donor level.

They claim they handed out the parkour demo, but I’m not the only backer that has no access to it.

I love supporting game developers but this isn’t that… Really hoping the backers can sue this undead horror of a “game” out of existence before it shambles on any further.

So they had years with a large-ish team and couldn’t deliver anything of note. But Jeromy ‘One Man Army’ Walsh is pushing ahead and will get it done? LOL. You can’t make this stuff up. It’s hilarious.

Well that’s the thing. Doesn’t matter that it could take decades, if ever to complete. Just do long as he continues to develop it, he can claim he is fulfilling his obligation to the backers and can’t be sued into oblivion

By giving everyone the parkour demo he can now say that the game was indeed handed out, just lacking certain features and he is still working on the rest.

Bullshit level 1,000:

“First, in an effort to preserve the community history, all of your hard work – which is still being used, we have reenabled the forums. The forums have been restored in a Read-Only format, as we still lack the bandwidth to ensure that it is a safe place for the community. In the interest of transparency, we have removed all threads from March 24th forward to the state they were in just prior to our controversial March 24th post. We’ve done so to keep the focus on the state of the game and development.”

Are we taking bets on whether or not he’s going to do some big push for more money?

Because I know where I’d be placing my bets.

You left out A Very Important part about the forums.

EVERYTHING in the Forum from the Date of Announced closure onward has been Stripped from the forum to make it look as if there was Never any problem.

How on Earth did you miss that Fact when writing this article?

It’s almost as if this article was written to shine a positive light Jeromy Walsh the Con-Artist.

Dude chill this is just a little side note in a pathetic little story, we’re past the point where hard investigations are needed.

Although that is interesting news so ty for that.

You know, there are ways to point out addendums to a news piece without cranking it up to 11 and attacking the author.

Also why are you capitalizing random words in your post?

You’re right, this site totally has a history of wiring puff pieces for this game and has never criticized it, ever.

Mhm. The man let everyone go as he couldn’t pay the salaries anymore but the development is still ongoing… Ok then.

And the forums (or any other place to discuss this game) don’t have the bandwidth to support discussion to say otherwise.
