Huge Community Update! Goals, Streams, AMA and more!
We head into the weekend with a ton of great community news to share with you all.
Thanks to all of you, we’ve reached more than $700,000! So we’re more than halfway to our stretch goal, which will enable us to support Mac, EFIGS and PSN/PSVR for Firmament. Please share with all your friends, relatives and strangers to keep that momentum going!
Community Social Media Goals
Many of you have been asking for new community social media goals, so we decided to do a few impactful goals for the Firmament campaign. We’ll track these goals on the main page every few days. We hope you’ll have fun taking part!
Remember, you can share / like / follow everything to do with Firmament to keep boosting the signal to all potential backers out there.
In the meantime, here are the official goals to get you started:
1. Instagram @FirmamentGame GOAL = 500 Follows
Follow the FirmamentGame Instagram account and share it out for others to discover and follow it, too. Commenting on the images helps boost it, too. This is a re-awakening of the account since we announced the game last years so please share your love with our baby Instagram page!
2. Twitter @FirmamentGame GOAL = 1500 Follows
Follow FirmamentGame on Twitter and Like, Retweet as many of the account’s (and fans’) tweets as you can! Please use the hashtag #FirmamentGame when mentioning the game or use @FirmamentGame - thank you! You can also @CyanWorlds and @Myst_Game for bonus mileage.
3. Facebook Post pinned at FirmamentGame GOAL = 150 Shares
Go to Facebook.com/FirmamentGame and find the pinned post on the page (the one that begins “On Kickstarter now”). Like Share to your own timeline, share to groups you’re in, share in messenger to all your Myst fan friends. It’s also hugely beneficial to find and share the other posts from the page - one every day or two!
4. Kickstarter Total Firmament backers GOAL = 16,000
This one is self-explanatory, let’s get the number of Firmament backers on Kickstarter to 16,000 (or more)!
5. “What is Firmament” Haikus on any social channel with #FirmamentGame GOAL = 100
Write a haiku with the question “What is Firmament?” in mind and share it on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media with the hashtag #FirmamentGame. Once we hit 100, this goal will be complete! But don’t let that stop you from sharing other #FirmamentGame-related posts during the rest of the campaign. We love to see all your creativity!
If all 5 Goals are met by the Firmament community before the end of this Kickstarter campaign, we’ll share the following rewards with *everyone* (not just backers)! Please note, each of these rewards will be shared in the future, after the campaign is finished (but hopefully before launch of Firmament). We’ll send out word when these are ready for everyone:
1. Your Own Adjunct! We’ll share a 3D printable model of the adjunct from Firmament.
2. Early Look! We’ll share some Firmament concept and in-game art in a community folder.
3. First Listen! We’ll share one of the first tracks from the Firmament soundtrack.
Streamers check out Firmament!
We sent our Proof of Concept Demo to some of our favorite streamers to check it out and share their first experience with Firmament! View their streams here, on Facebook:
We’ll be updating the post with more streams as they come.

Recent Interview Podcasts:
I think you two would get along:
Rand was recently interviewed by Trin of the Kickstarter Games Team.
It’s the crossover event of the century. Kells (Calico) and Rand Miller (Cyan Worlds) discuss their distinct creative visions, pack-bonding with robots, and how Jimmy Eat World is basically the Pink Floyd of turn-of-the-century emo.
Listen to the podcast below:
Live broadcast from Synthplex:
Russell Brower, Firmament's Music Supervisor was interviewed on Dublab.com.
Listen to Russell's interview, here (he begins to discuss his work with Cyan at the 17:40 mark):
