Hey all you Gameboomers,

Today I saw this on Facebook.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1252280491/myst-25th-anniversary-collection

and this too:

https://www.techspot.com/news/73762-cyan-launch-updated-versions-all-myst-games-later.html

The Kickstarter has rewards as well as codes for digital copies of the games.

I have MYST and Riven and MYST 5 from GOG, but 3 and 4 haven't been available for a while so I'm excited!

-Adam

If anyone has any more information, share it with us smile

Wow.. Now I have to figure out how to convince my wife that I need to do this. It might be difficult since she knows I have all the games in their original boxes (The the books....and the comics.....and stuff!) laugh

Met their goal in 8 hours. I hope that's enough to signal to my friends at Cyan that there's a longing to play in the Myst worlds and these style of games.
I pledged for the book with the LCD.

yes I backed it for the linking book, I have digital version of all the games except for myst 3 and 4 which I have the masterpiece version on disk but they seem to run on windows 10.

Haze - be sure to get the Linking Book. Then you can beam off to another land when you get into a spat with the Mrs. lol

I am amazed at the total as Cyan was. So my uneducated, no nothing breakdown

$810,127 for Taxes and Fees
$500,000 for the cost of running the Kickstarter, the amazing incentives, shipping and the creation of the updated games along with the extra content.
$1,500,000 profit for making us more games?

I know...I have no idea of what I am talking about but one can dream of more games including a new Myst right?
