Amazing Update! Big News!
As you may know, Rand and his brother Robyn made Myst and Riven together. Robyn just wrapped up his first movie, “The Immortal Augustus Gladstone,” which is slated for release in February 2014. Robyn wrote and directed the film and composed the soundtrack. What you may not realize is he also played the role of Augustus.
Which leads us to some exciting news!
Robyn will be playing one of the lead characters in Obduction! And Rand will be joining him! They’ll both have acting roles in the new game - something they haven’t done together since the original Myst!
And there's even more exciting news!
Robyn and Rand's brother Ryan also worked on Myst - including writing the books in the library. After Myst, Ryan worked with Rand for many years at Cyan - where he helped with design and writing on many of Cyan’s post-Riven projects. Ryan then moved on to other things - including authoring several books. (Check out his latest book “Everything Breathes” here!)
Ryan will also be helping with Obduction - in both a design and writing role! He’ll be writing much of the supporting text that appears in the game - as well as offering his services to the design team, which Rand is heading up.
These recent developments are incredibly exciting! It feels like we’re building momentum for the final push! Let’s keep up the good work, and make Obduction happen. Thank you all for your hard work and support!
