Do you remember when the head clown leading this circus said on these forums that of course $1.36M was not enough money. It was just seed money and he would need around $3M or $4M total to bring the game to full release with all the bells and whistles? Well they are double that money now. “Game” is still not even in Alpha. No investor ever found, just milking the same suckers for more and more cash.
$7.7 million and nothing.

Sorry, the very term “kickstarter-versary” just sickens me.
I find perpetual beggary more to the point.
It is well known that MMO's take a lot of time and money, but this is ridiculous. The currently available gameplay footage look like two completely different games.

Here is the Silvermine Dungeon demo from 2.5 years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xi2ASn9xDB0

Here is their latest dungeon walkthrough: https://cdn.chroniclesofelyria.com/screenshots/shiny/chronicles-of-elyria-prealpha-dungeon-walk-01.mp4?_=1

Yes, the SECOND link is what was shown a few weeks ago. Those are not reversed.

It seems that this game has recently ceased to exist. From what little information can be gathered, the developer more or less ran off with most of the money, if not all of it. According to Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronicles_of_Elyria
Quote
Chronicles of Elyria is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game[2][3] developed by Soulbound Studios for Microsoft Windows that is currently on an indefinite hiatus[4]. Early development of the game began in 2000.[citation needed] Production started in 2016 with the majority of financing coming in the way of a large crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. The game was originally marked for an estimated December 2017 release, but was not met.[5] Soulbound Studios closed its doors and laid off the entirety of its staff on March 25th, 2020.[4]
Several YouTubers have covered its demise, notably TheLazyPeon.

RIP Chronicles Of Elyria - Scam MMORPG

Designer Jeromy "Caspian" Walsh was paying himself $230,000 per year and also was still selling in game land plots right until the games development was stopped.

The last blog post from the developer is from April 28th 2020

Essentially: If you backed this game you're never getting your money back. And you're never getting a game.

The Chronicles Of Elyria YouTube channel still exists.

Its a shame the game died as it looked like it would have been a lot of fun.
