Our AMA on Reddit went over spectacularly! Not only did we get over 4000 upvotes and make the default front page (a feat in and of itself), but we also drew in over 13,000 unique visitors to this site, and received nearly $200 in donations. Best of all, we got more than 20 new volunteers! Don’t worry if you haven’t heard back from us yet, we’re just a bit snowed under with these emails. If you sent us an e-mail, we’re working on it, and we should get a reply back to you shortly.
Thank you so much to everybody who participated! And if you didn’t get a chance to ask your question, just leave it as a comment here, on an older post, or send us an email!
Now you can “Ask Us Anything” on Reddit! Come join us for a grand old time with your questions and comments about the project!
You guys know we’re always here if you want to talk. Just post in a comments section, or send us an e-mail, and we’ll reply as soon as we can. Other people, though, people who maybe don’t frequent this site, don’t know how accessible we are. In order to remedy this, we’ve decided to hold an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit, on Monday, August 20th, at 10AM EDT (14h00 UTC).
We hope you can come join the rest of the Internet in asking about our project!
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.
Howdy all! This is your official invitation to join us for our presentation at Mysterium 2012 in Seattle! We’re presenting the last year’s worth of work and news today, Friday, August 3 right now!
Please note that while earlier today we were experiencing technical difficulties, those difficulties have been mitigated and we are continuing on with our presentation at this moment (now). Thank you for your patience!
If you’re not attending Mysterium in person, the event will be streamed live online here via LiveStream (or you can watch it embedded in this page below)! Hope to see you there!

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.
Just posting to let everyone know that we will indeed be at Mysterium 2012, during the first weekend of August, making our usual presentation. We will, of course, also be livestreaming the presentation, and it will be available for viewing after the fact. But for the fullest of effect, you really want to be there in person!
If you want to experience the awesome first-hand, register soon!
You may be interested to know that today, we launched a new development blog! We plan to post here about our works in progress, insights, and general struggles we’ve faced while developing the game. Hope you enjoy!
