      another great adventure funded!

    2. Creator Sir Jordi on November 14, 2013

      great addition!

    3. Creator David Wistrand on November 14, 2013

      Success! Great work everybody! :D

      Let's make this happen!

    4. Creator TRYER on November 13, 2013

      Can't believe it. That is awesome. Glad I supported and glad you made it Cyan. Thanks to all the supporters. Can't wait for the game.

    6. Creator Jim Winsor on November 13, 2013

      Congratulations Cyan! Goal reached, and onward to the stretch goal!!!!

    7. Creator Andrew Macdonald on November 13, 2013

      Upped my pledge too - really want this to happen.

    8. Creator Ken Evans on November 13, 2013

      1400EST is my guess. And still lots of time for unlocking...

    9. Creator Ronald L Kirkland on November 13, 2013

      I'm guessing 1507 hrs. EST... and lots of gravy.

    10. Creator Andreas Birnbaumer on November 13, 2013

      We can make it!! :-)

    11. Creator Paul Freund on November 13, 2013

      I wonder if the lever sound was real...

    12. Creator Ken Evans on November 13, 2013

      Ok. If we get 1000 people to increase our support by only $25, this project will be funded. 5000 people at $25 will fund AND unlock the first extra! Maybe we can even talk the Cyan folks into one more benefit, if we get this done now!
      I'm up for it. Who's with me?

    13. Creator Ahenobarbus on November 13, 2013

      I would say we have pretty good chances to hit 1,4m.

    14. Creator Margo Roby on November 13, 2013

      Upped my pledge. Feel like I'm with a giant family waiting for their new child to appear!

    15. Creator Watashi on November 13, 2013

      1,060,808...on a roll again this morning

    16. Creator Watashi on November 13, 2013

      Never doubted for a second we could pull this off..We are afterall...Explorers Myst, Riven, & URU Live Again.....It would be nice to have an Obduction T-Shirt show up in our closets on our Relto

    17. Creator Aralis on November 13, 2013

      We're about to made it. Keep going! Spread the word. Cyan is going to bring us in another adventure!

    18. Creator Julius Ter Pelkwijk on November 13, 2013

      Upped my pledge. Unfortunately the boxed version was a bit too much for me (I dont have a big budget), but I believe that if you can literally "up the ante" by releasing a game that creates a whole new experience in the gaming industry, I believe that it is worth the extra money. Cant wait to hear the music that comes with my pledge...

    19. Creator mog7 on November 13, 2013

      Oculus Goal ! This would be so great. Manage pledge buttt.. where is.. ah.. top.. it´s big that´s good, I can´t miss it. Push, no wait, choose first.

      Thanks for the great video, it´s happening, a new real Cyan game. : )

    20. Creator Seba on November 13, 2013

      Two questions:
      1) How many takes?
      2) What on earth is Tony carrying?

    21. Creator Steve Kotton on November 13, 2013

      Congratulations Rand and Tony. Seeing you walk through the Cyan fortress brought back a lot of good memories of the creation of Riven. Can't wait to see the next game, and your next installment. Just found out about it, but I'll be passing the word along. Time passes too quickly old friends. Let me know if I can help.

    22. Creator Rori on November 13, 2013

      I helped (in my small way) and I hope it goes well.
      The hope comes from the bottom of my heart and thank you for all the wonderful hours I spent with the game Myst, Riven and Exile

    23. Creator Seba on November 13, 2013

      2:20 - it has to he said. "You fool!"

    24. Creator DeeZaster on November 13, 2013

      I have been flustered with worry that this was going to just miss the total needed from the calculations I did from 2 weeks to 6 days left. I even skipped checking for 2 days because I didn't want any disappointment... but why would I ever even have thought this wouldn't hit its mark? WE HAVE THE GREATEST BACKERS EVER FROM THE GUILDS! Whoo hoo! We are making it, I was going to raise my pledge up from the $250 to the new tier of $425 the last day to give some momentum but looks like its already started. It would be a dream to meet Rand and the team, 4 backers at that tier will be having the time of their life!

      Congrats Cyan! You'll always have my support.

    25. Creator ☜☆RSF☆☞ "The Dwarves" & "Battletech" on November 13, 2013

      So awesome. I think we should aim to chase down that Oculus Rift & Localization stretch goal!! :D

    26. Creator Jeston Tigchon on November 13, 2013

      Rand, you are the Coolest Dad.

    27. Creator Christel Bach on November 13, 2013

      Thanks Rand! Thanks for pulling the lever. I'm sure the door to the future is open now.
      OK - so give me that art book! - would buy it eventually after all. My Christmas present for me - -and you ! Go do your thing. <3

    28. Creator safyrejet on November 13, 2013

      Ok ok, I'll be depriving myself on other things this Christmas season but I can't argue with a guy who pulls a lever. I really want to see this game to happen so I've gotta jump on it now. Plus I want that soundtrack. I've upped my pledge. But just so you appreciate the sacrifice I'm making: I'm giving up going to see Thor.

    29. Creator Revery123 on November 13, 2013

      I hope you guys can reach the Oculus Rift stretch goal-- many of the community members are greatly looking forward to it! Upped my pledge to hopefully make it happen, good luck!

    30. Creator Isaac Nyhus on November 13, 2013

      Just upped my pledge, I so want this game to happen, I thought I'd never see anything from cyan again!

    31. Creator Wendy La Gasse-Anderson on November 13, 2013

      Hey- my sis Vick is in this! :-). So excited for this project!

    32. Creator Coyote Hubbard on November 13, 2013

      Reminds me of being a 4 door sedan owner in the PNW, Where im at, snow is rare, but when it hits no one knows how to drive in it (im an east coast transplant that learned to live weeks without power durung snowstorms) On my way home from work one year after a hellova snow, im at the base of a hill to get to my house. Imk off to the side, watching these folks in 4wd trucks deciding that trying to creep up the hill will work...
      After watching 3 of them slide off in the ditch, and the road clear, i floor it and shoot up, and over the top of it because i got momentum beforehand.

      This has momentum and that last push over the top is hairy like my display, lots of tractuon loss near the top, spinning but staying true but I made it over, and this will too.

      It has too, and it will.

    33. Creator Shad Garr on November 12, 2013

      Hah, Love it! Make it happen!! :DDDD

    34. Creator Maarten Dijkstra on November 12, 2013

      LOVED the video. Thanks Rand - We're gonna do this!

    35. Creator Jessi on November 12, 2013

      Thanks for your video, it made me smile! Congratulations on reaching 1 Million as well!

    36. Creator Casey Dombos on November 12, 2013

      We all love you and your team of beautiful minds. I know you will take care of us and deliver something astonishing/breathtaking/phenomenal it will rival all publishers and AAA studios and your doing it on your own. Stand tall amongst the rest and I cannot wait to experience another journey from your team.

    37. Creator Kenneth Ray Offer, II on November 12, 2013

      Just went and bought the iPad versions of realMyst and Riven to celebrate. We're almost there!

    38. Creator Alyssa Nelson on November 12, 2013

      Hahaha the hashtags killed me!! Best of luck to you :)

    39. Creator Damian Vila on November 12, 2013


    40. Creator Marie Lamb on November 12, 2013

      That switch made my day. So much love going your way, guys. I wish I could throw all the money at you with it!

    41. Creator Vonn Scott Bair on November 12, 2013

      Good Evening: Wish I had one of those levers. Incidentally, it worked! After the pull, I saw roughly $900 in new pledges come in. Now I *really* want one of those levers. Vonn Scott Bair

    42. Creator GalvanicSpiral on November 12, 2013

      Awesome vid. The lever gag was classic!

      Especially liked all the #cleverlystagedpeepsandconvos

    43. Creator Aaron Clausman on November 12, 2013

      No, Rand, you got the right lever. It makes the water flow which powers the money making water mill, you know?

    44. Creator Henry Minsky on November 12, 2013

      That lever actually worked... after I saw it thrown I posted a "Share this" with a pointer to this kickstarter to my LinkedIn account.

    45. Creator Cindy Collins Smith on November 12, 2013

      That lever pull made me laugh out loud!

      I do believe this game is gonna happen! #soexcitedicanandletthemoneyflow

    46. Creator Drew Salad on November 12, 2013

      Not sure if it was the lever or somebody tried moving the slider, but things are kicking now. Let's do this Cyan!

    47. Creator Redbearde77 on November 12, 2013

      @Rand Humm, puzzles! Got it! :)

    48. Creator Aaron Grieger | Quasar II on November 12, 2013

      Lol this is why you guys are my favorite. Excuse me while I go browse some ADD-ONs for my pledge.

    49. Creator Cyan, Inc. on November 12, 2013

      Thanks for the great comments, and the incredible support. You are amazing! BTW - we made that video today - just barely finished it in time! Now onward and upward! Might have to start working on another video pretty soon.
