Richard Garriott de Cayeux ,aka Lord British, has locked down a new gaming venture in the form of Portalarium, a game developing company for mobile platforms and social networks.
Portalarium has acquired seven million dollars from venture capitalists, which will be used toward Garriott’s first game, Ultimate Collection: Garage Sales for Facebook and iOS.
The rest of the money will be put towards an anticipated role-playing game called Ultimate RPG / New Britannia (working title), with a possible tie to the Ultima tradition. At least that’s the story until we get confirmation, of course.
The last announcement during this venture was that Portalarium looks to be joining forces with Zynga, but no games have been announced yet.
It’s exciting to see the master of Ultima make a new RPG for mobile platforms, and I am curious to hear from fans how you feel about these upcoming games.
