Former Ultima Devs Announce New Gaming Studio, DeMeta...And You Guessed It...Blockchain
Richard Garriott has jumped on the blockchain train.
If you’ve been wondering what Richard Garriott has been up to lately – other than whatever is up with Shroud of the Avatar lately – we now have your answer. He and Todd Porter, a fellow former Ultima developer and founding producer of Dungeons & Dragons, announced the launch of a new company today.
The company, DeMeta, has already kicked off the development of an online title that will be making use of blockchain technology. DeMeta is the “US arm” of DeHorizon, a company that bills itself as being “committed to becoming the next generation of metaverse game ecosystems”. Its current project is the team battle game DeVerse. If you’re the kind to wonder about this sort of thing, it’s built on the Ethereum Virtual Machine – or will be...and yes, there will be NFTs.
Currently, that’s everything we know about the project – unless you want to go into the nitty-gritty of NFT and blockchain on their site, but you can read about that on the DeHorizon site.

LAUNCH CLASSIC Tabula Rasa. :)
Now every article has a list of just some of the dirty tricks, money scamming actions, and outright financial illegality these developers got up too. Beyond that, look at the /r/shroudoftheavatar_raw subreddit for far, far more detail. And even that isn't the full story, the lies and scams and outright stalking and harassment from people who desperately wanted to inflate their real money item selling businesses, or were just mentally unhinged and over-emotionally invested in a computer game, which goes back nearly a decade.
Now Garriott wants to do it all over again, but this time, using NFTs to exploit money out of you. Stay far, far away because what ever talent he may have once had, he seems to have left it in near Earth orbit, and returned as a pod-person version of the designer he used to be.
