Richard “Lord British” Garriott has been away for too long. An outspoken eccentric with a passion for videogames, he was one of the first people to bring RPGs to the PC with Akalabeth, which grew into the nine-part Ultima epic. He co-founded developer/publisher Origin, arguably one of the most important developers of all time. They don’t make them like Garriott any more, which makes his return with Tabula Rasa all the more important. An online sci-fi RPG that attempts not only to introduce a whole new world to gamers, but to make them care about it? Can he pull it off?
