Obduction

If you’re interested in Myst, Riven, and good games in general, then you probably should go and check out Cyan’s new game, Obduction! They’re currently raising funds for it over on Kickstarter, and it looks like it contains everything we loved about Riven, and more! Please consider tossing them a few bucks!

UPDATE: The Kickstarter was a success!! Thank you, everyone!

Mysterium 2012 Recap

Mysterium is still ongoing, but we thought we’d post a brief outline of what we announced during our presentation just a few minutes ago.

First, we showed the gameplay as it stands now. You can watch a condensed walkthrough of that, including our brand-new sky, here (it had to be re-run since the video didn’t go through the first time), or by watching the video below.

You can also watch (or rather, listen to) the first attempt at showing the game (actual presentation starts at 4:07), which didn’t go so well because of streaming issues.

Then, we announced the exciting news that Cyan Worlds, Inc. has agreed to allow us to proceed with our project! We also showed a short video of Boiler Island as it stands now (shown in the video linked to above), and we have just recently added a new post to our dev blog for your enjoyment.

Chatlog from Online Mysterium

Online Mysterium has come and gone, and I’d say it was pretty successful. The full log of the event can be read here! Any follow-up questions can be posted as comments here, and I (or another member of the team) will do my best to answer them.

The Reddit Effect

We don’t usually do this sort of thing, but we got such a big traffic boost from Reddit the other day, we just had to share. We’ve never seen such a drastic spike – those horizontal bars are counting thousands of unique hits, and all of the non-Reddit days still average in the hundreds – still nothing to scoff at.

We got about $55 in donations, over 100 beta signups, and some other interesting side effects. More news soon!

Mysterium 2011 PowerPoint

Some of you might already know this, but one of the 59 volters gave a surprise presentation at the DutchMystCommunity gathering this weekend. It was quite a success, and we’re working on getting some footage of the event.

In the meantime, there have been some requests, from both english-speaking and Dutch communities, for downloadable Powerpoint slideshows, so you can all relive the magic of being at a Myst gathering this year. Here they are!

(These should both work whether or not you have PowerPoint installed. If not, let us know and we’ll do our best to fix them up for you)

These are for personal enjoyment only, if you’d like to present either of these at some kind of a gathering (like Mysterium or DutchMystCommunity), please let us know first.
