Portalarium marks Richard Garriott's first return to the video game industry since the release of his 2007 title Tabula Rasa. The name "Portalarium", as well as the company's motto, "We take you there," is intended as a continuity and reference to Garriott's prior two company's names and respective mottoes; Origin Systems, "We Create Worlds," and Destination Games, "We have arrived." 
The company initially released some simplistic casino-themed games to test the backbone of the companies online infrastructure, and also has two flagship titles currently announced.
The first such game, Ultimate Collector, released in November 2012, is centered around virtually hunting for, collecting, repairing, displaying, and selling all variety of collectables. The game is set to be paired with a television show hosted by Garriott (himself an avid collector), the pilot for which has already been filmed. The game was featured in part of a cross-medium Easter Egg scavenger hunt contest from the book Ready Player One.
Also in development, is a role-playing video game titled Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues, a spiritual successor to the Ultima series. It was previously known by the working title Ultimate RPG. Garriott stated that if he were able to secure the rights to the Ultima intellectual property from Electronic Arts, that the game could literally become Ultima Online 2. Ultimate RPG is stated to be a cross platform title, including plans for browser based distribution via avenues such as Facebook, Google Play, and the Zynga portal, downloadable executable for PC, and mobile app stores such as iPhone and Android.
