The Return of Richard Garriott

Posted Feb 17, 2010 by Michael Bitton

The Return of Richard Garriott

Ultima visionary Richard Garriott is making his return to gaming. The former NCsoft executive and space tourist is now the technical director of an Austin-based social media company called Portalarium, which will be "developing and publishing online social games, virtual worlds and related services and products."

The virtual worlds bit stood out to us, I wonder what we'll see from Garriott's latest venture? The projects we currently know are in development include a Texas hold 'em Facebook game called Sweet @$! Poker, as well as the Portalarium Player, which is a browser plug-in used to allow games to run seamlessly within the various major social networking services.

Visit the official Portalarium website for more information.
