Chronicles of Elyria

<Shameless Post To Recruit Community Members>

Chronicles of Elyria is an upcoming MMORPG[2][3][4] also commonly referred to as a MEOW (Multiplayer Evolving Online World), developed by Soulbound Studios for Microsoft Windows. Development of the game began in 2000 (see Development section below). Production started in 2016 with the majority of financing coming in the way of a large crowdfunding campaign. The game was originally planned for an estimated December 2017 release,[5] but delays in production due to slow acquiring of staff as well as over-engagement with the game's community led to postponement until the end of 2019.[6] In 2016, Soulbound Studios partnered with Improbable[7][8] to use SpatialOS for handling the server technology[9] of Chronicles of Elyria. However, in January 2018 the company announced[10] they were no longer using SpatialOS due to Improbable announcing [11] that SpatialOS had deprecated support for JavaScript SDK among other issues. As such they have instead incorporated piecemeal solutions such as Docker Swarm and RabbitMQ for server technology onto their own Soulborn Engine. Prologue: The Awakening, which will be able to be played both as a single-player and multiplayer game set in the same universe as Chronicles of Elyria (CoE), is also being developed. It will be free to download and play as a solo experience. For multi-player, only the GM will need to purchase an Adventure Toolkit which is used to build your own adventure.[12]

Been six months. Any word about the second half of 2019 release?

Went belly up. Lawsuits are being filed for mismanagement and fraud.

Yikes! Got any links to sources of information on that?

From the sites page:
https://chroniclesof...lyria-Into-the-Abyss

Youtube commentary:
https://www.youtube..../watch?v=bfiibVaEMeY

The main discussion about a lawsuit is being done on the Discord channel. I already filed with the Washington state AG's office. I am not expecting a return on what I spent but I would like to see the guy go to jail. He horribly mismanaged the money and six weeks ago had another land sale to gather up more money before saying it is all done a week ago. So he knew they were shutting down and still was asking for money through kickstarter.

I only lost a couple hundred. Others have lost 5-20k and more.

Wow. I'm reminded of those scammers who somehow string along women with long-distance relationships for months or years and extract thousands upon thousands of dollars from them over that time.

Yep, the CEO blindsided the devs and just shut everything down with no warning. Devs were told on the Monday and had to clear everything out by Tuesday. 

The entire community is in uproar and there is a dedicated Discord setup for a class-action law-suit.

Pretty annoyed about it all tbh.

If you purchased through XSolla, request a refund.  People have been given refunds going back around 600 days.  I've applied for mine :)

Sadly I can not remember who I paid. I think mine was direct.

Unless you paid in during Kickstarter, it will have been through XSolla (They are the only payment method they allowed) - even if you used Paypal...it went through XSolla ^_^

Check your emails for a receipt :)

Thanks. Was there. Seriously doubt anything will be reimbursed as per their policy and the fact that they can't get the money from a company that is bankrupt. Still submitted though.

Worst they can say is no.  I'm hearing quite a few people succeeded with refunds though.
