Your Character Can Grow Old And Die In Chronicles of Elyria

Permadeath is the norm when it comes to survival games such as Rust and Ark: Survival Evolved. Chronicles of Elyria takes the concept of death and permadeath differently by adding the feature(?) to die by old age.

Yep, you can die an old man in Chronicles of Elyria.

How does the whole “death-by-old-age” work in Chronicles of Elyria? Here’s the official description from their Kickstarter page:

“Characters age in-game over the course of 10-14 real-world months. During that time your character will grow old and eventually die, leaving their mark on history. But while alive you must choose your actions carefully, as each in-game death reduces your overall lifespan (approximately 2 days) and brings your character that much closer to permadeath. However, if you’re an influential player (the king perhaps), each in-game death is more impactful, leading to permadeath in just 4 or 5 times.”

It’s definitely interesting to create a virtual character, only to have it grow old and die, This makes each character you create an important one as you only have a limited life-span on this (virtual) world to make a mark.

The developer, Soulbound Studios, launched their Kickstarter page for Chronicles of Elyria and is aiming for $900,000 in funding. You can check out their Kickstarter page here.

Chronicles of Elyria is targeted for a December 2017 window date and will release on PC (if funded).
