Six months of development later, Richard Garriott is ready to show what shape his new RPG Shroud of the Avatar is currently in.

He narrates 20 minutes of videoed gameplay as player houses, cities, prisons and forests are explored. We see the early combat system in action as bears, sailors, chickens and even a dragon are faced down. Crafting and dialogue systems are in shot, too.

Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues was successfully funded on Kickstarter to the tune of $2 million earlier this year. It's tentatively due next October.
