      As soon as I heard about this, I shelled out the cash. Not a second thought. Doesn't matter that I'm a broke grad student. I love, love, love all the Myst-series games. Nothing like them. They transport me to alien worlds in a way no other games have. I don't like point-and-shoot games, at all, and I've missed that feeling of immersion that only comes with Cyan games. Just this year I purchased and re-played many of those games again (although I don't recommend it, if you're writing a dissertation). Keep up the great work, guys. Can't wait.

      Cyan will send out a KickStarter survey sometime before they ship to confirm your address. I suspect they get that address information from Amazon Payments.I do not see that information in my KickStarter account settings or profile.

      I just moved. Where do i update my adress so you send to the right adress when its all done?

      @Gary Hinton - yes it does. This (long) thread on the Cyan forums… shows how this was discovered but it's all rather diffuse!. There's also a wiki which has been capturing each breakthrough on the ARG.…

      Please update us on post-kickstarter funds! I would love to see if the stretch goals are met.

      Good find Mac_Fife! I wonder if it has anything to do with Karl Hunrath who was supposedly abducted by aliens back in 1953.

    8. charles kinder on

      Fantastic!!! I'm glad I'm able to be a part of it!

    10. Greta Prisby on

      @Tiago, that would be great, haha! Congratulations everyone! Wow. Such Amaze.

    11. Tiago Regueiras on

      Will Ryan be one of the obducted NPCs we'll find??? Will we find him roaming around an alien yet strangely familiar picket fence house, placed in the middle of what's clearly not it's place, after 2 years???

    12. Jose Cardoso on

      @William Or just use virtual machines. Less hassle to maintain and more portable. I have all of Cyan's past games working fine in a Windows VM via Steam.

      I'm just trying to think of ways for Cyan to raise more investments by doing deals on their existing software. Maybe a free full version of Myst for iDevice for another $25? Also if the graphics can handle it and not too much work is required a Backers Collectors edition of Myst could be distributed that enabled AIRPLAY or equivalents through to the TV (i.e. via Apple TV etc - not just the sound).

    14. William O'Meallain

      Which is why everyone should have a retro gaming system. For me, it's a 1GHz PIII Windows 98 machine, with a Voodoo5 card and a Gateway Destination 36" monitor. Great for those favorite early Windows games, which I still like to play on occasion.

      Ooops, its only the sound:( ANYWAY… ROLL ON 2015!!

    16. K R Parkinson (GalvanicSpiral) on

      @ Ian: You can get Steam/GOG downloads of Myst Masterpiece; Riven; V; realMyst; and URU, but it is true that some of them don't work too well on modern systems, even if playable. You *can* get them, though.

      Ian Adkins on

      Incidentally, AFAIK you can't get the old games for latest Mac/PC's. The only thing I worked out is that downloading the apps for iPhone/Pad is great to AIRPLAY on huge screen… just about to try it...

      Hey, can't wait for this! I could only donate $25 as on zero income but wish I could do more… maybe I could do another $25 if I got Myst and/or Riven downloads:) Don't forget Mac support - NOT happy playing games in Parallels/Windows.

    19. Gunnar Óskarsson on

      Congrats with the success of the Kickstarter campaign. Looking forward to see uppdates on the development. And I'm so glad to see you doing Oculus support. It will without a doubt be a spectacular game.

      Wonderful VID, Sweet!
      Ryan W, Rand, all Cyantists. Hope you get some well deserved rest. I know you all have been working on this for some time, already. Still, get Obducting! :)

      It's been my experience that the journey to the game is almost as good as getting the game itself. :)

      and now we get to pace and wait till these plans come to fruition *sigh* I hate being trapped waiting in a book *smirk*

      This may be the best $45 I've spent in awhile. Look forward to the periodic updates and of course the game.
      Damn, 2015, I'll be 64 years young then. Better hurry the development.

      When you looked at that tree I thought of that tree elevator from MYST.
