The studio behind Myst launches Kickstarter Campaign for new game Firmament
Award-winning Myst studio Cyan launches a 30 day Kickstarter campaign to raise $1.3 million to develop Firmament, a next-generation enigmatic narrative adventure.

Cyan once again turns to its fans with a Kickstarter campaign to help fund an amazingly immersive new game, Firmament, and to further explore VR as the next generation technology in world building. Deeply rooted in the spirit of Myst, Riven and more recently, Obduction, Firmament is an all-new, immersive, atmospheric adventure that will be released initially for traditional gaming on PC, and VR headsets Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

“Kickstarter is a way for us to reach out to our fans to help us fund the types of games we like to build and they like to play.” said Rand Miller, CEO, Cyan. “Anyone who knows Cyan understands that we have always embraced pushing the boundaries of world creation. We believe that VR is part of an evolutionary step in making our worlds even more immersive. Empowering our fans to fund through Kickstarter allows us to explore these creative opportunities. Oh, and they’re gonna love this game.”

Firmament is an all-new story and experience, but it draws on and embraces the steampunk aesthetics (that define parts of Myst) to weave a rich and surprising narrative - with just a touch of magic. The player explores various fantastic worlds with the help of a mechanical adjunct. This constant companion gradually becomes an essential instrument as the player learns how to seamlessly interact, guide, and communicate with it, uncovering a remarkable chain of events.

Cyan’s previous game, Obduction, and most recently the Myst 25th Anniversary Collection, were both successful Kickstarter campaigns. For the Firmament campaign, Cyan is collaborating with Fangamer to create the merchandise. Fangamer has a reputation for creating exceptional merchandise – shirts, plushies, books, prints, pins,etc. – inspired by some of the best video games of all time.

With successful funding through Kickstarter, Firmament will be scheduled for release in the summer of 2020 and be available for PC, Rift and Vive.

About Cyan
Cyan is a legendary indie games studio headquartered in Spokane, Washington, best known for award-winning games Myst and Riven. Cyan celebrated the 25th anniversary of Myst last year with a special collectors edition of the complete series, and the formation of Cyan Ventures to help foster and support indie developers in the creation of innovative VR narrative experiences.

Happy Gaming!

Getting a little worried about this one. They've only got 6 days to go and are still almost 400K short. That's a lot of of backers they still need to get on board.

I have a feeling that a number of people were disappointed with Obduction (probably because it wasn't a Myst-universe game, which is rather unfair, but that's people). So the reaction to Firmament is a little cool right now, which is a shame.

I just increased my pledge (for the last time) and I noticed they just went past 1 million but still have over 200k to go by Friday.

Well, here's hoping they make it. I've done all I can do.

Very cool. Just listened to the live stream with Rand, and one of the topics he hit towards the end was a Myst Series/Movie! He straight out said they are more involved now in that effort than ever. He didn't give any more details than that, but wow. It would be very cool if they got Netflix funding on something like that grin
