Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen developer Visionary Realms is teaming up with Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues developer Portalarium to offer rewards for those who back both projects.
Both games are the latest projects from their pedigreed creators. EverQuest creator Brad McQuaid unveiled Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen last year. It's currently seeking funds on Kickstarter. Ultima creator Richard "Lord British" Garriott crowdfunded Shroud of the Avatar on Kickstarter last year.
According to a post on Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen's Kickstarter blog to "qualify for the special Pantheon/SotA cross-game cloak you must be a Pantheon backer at the Fallen's Special tier or higher and the SotA First Responder (Kickstarter) or Adventurer (post-Kickstarter) pledge tier or higher." You can see the cross-game crests below.
"The opportunity to work with Portalarium is extremely exciting, not just in terms of what we can do together with our games, but also on a very personal level," said Visionary Realms chief creative officer Brad McQuaid in a press statement. "Lord British has been a hero of mine since I was a teen, and ultimately was responsible for inspiring me into the video game industry. Lord British and Portalarium continue to be an inspiration with Shroud of the Avatar. It's a perfect example of how the core elements of games from years past can continue to influence and innovate in today's industry."
As of this writing, Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen has received $284,485 in pledges of its $800,000 goal from 2,182 backers.
