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


If all the people were heroes, there would be no one to watch the parades.

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


That will be ten Dramoi.

And more good news for Mac users! It will also be ported to the Mac!


In my PC corner for the winter, my little heater by my side, to game, read and knit.

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?

If anyone caught the Live countdown and party feed Rand and the Cyan team had earlier today, he pretty much said there will be a new Myst game as well as updating the Myst Online: Uru Live. He also replied to a question about if Firmament would be playable in other than VR and he said if Firmament is made they are shooting for totally VR but things could change. I got the feeling that it may not be completed. I also get the feeling that everyone loves working at Cyan. If you missed the Live countdown you can watch the replay here https://live.kickstarter.com/cyan-worlds...ary-kickstarter

Thanks GreyFuss, that was fun to watch. They are such a great bunch of folks over at Cyan.

Wonder if any members of the old forums will sponsor the traditional, celebratory Cyan pizza party for the crew grin
