Shroud of the Avatar - 'We Are Nomadic Now' as the Team Gives Up Its Office Space

Shroud of the Avatar - 'We Are Nomadic Now' as the Team Gives Up Its Office Space - MMORPG.com

The Shroud of the Avatar livestream from last week started off with a bang as Starr Long kicked things off with "We are nomadic now" and told the viewers that Portalarium had decided to give up its office space in favor of teleworking. The move away from offices will free up resources and time, according to Long, due to increasing office rental costs and rising utilities as well as commute time / cost for developers.

"We decided to do a little bit of an experiment to go office-less and this will free up the revenue that we were spending -- on things like office and utilities and internet access and the time we were spending commuting which just got greater and greater -- on other things." Long told viewers.

The stream went on to say that more might have been done on the latest update and that more is planned for the next update with the time saved commuting.

Servers have been moved to a data center so that developers can telecommute without worrying about power outages and so forth.

You can check the full stream below or on the Shroud of the Avatar Twitch channel.
