Irony is so ironic

In this video, I greet the Obductees who have migrated over to our campaign and reflect upon the parallel history between Trilobyte and Cyan... how we began independently of each other in the same year and within a few months of each other, and how we released our respective games which went on to dominate CDROM market of the time. And now, exactly 20 years later, each company has independently chosen the same moment to introduce their own next big projects on Kickstarter. There is a certain irony to it all. And in an ideal world, it would seem only fitting to tie up the story nicely with an ending in which both games were funded and once again released again in the same year. That would be a bit of interesting gaming history. Ah, if only history were written by authors. On the other hand, the fans and backers here do have the power to write the ending to this particular story.

We have added add-ons to the Developer pledge level. Add up to three people (or two people and a pet) to your animated portrait, to create a haunted "family" portrait.

A great gift idea for the whole family

We will be adding a couple more lower and mid level tiers very soon.

We have backed two more games.

STASIS - Classic point & click adventure game played from a unique isometric view point set in a science fiction universe in 2D.

Red Baron - The best dogfighting flight sim of all time. And it's going to be light years better. Unfortunately, Mad Otter has decided to cancel the campaign. But they will be back to relaunch in the future. Go check out their page. If you follow them on their social media sites, they'll have perks for you.

And shouting out again to two of our favorites.

Bolt Riley - A Reggae Adventure Game

Playing With Fear -  The World of Horror Video Games

      Rob, that makes me a bit sad. I loved both games and considered them both groundbreaking in their own right. I was really excited when Myst was released for Nintendo DS and equally excited when I could finally download and play 7th Guest and 11th Hour again.

      Ghaelen,

      When the gaming press wrote about Myst and 7th Guest, they were almost always compared to one another. In the minds of the public and press, neither game could exist on its own and be appreciated for its own merits independent of the other. One would have to be declared good and the other bad. There was polarization with no middle ground where many gamers and most journalists were either in one camp or the other.

      I played both Myst and 7th Guest very closely in time with each other in the late 1990's. Both were equally intriguing in different ways. While I'm not a huge fan of difficult puzzles, the scenery and storylines of both were what really drew me in. And the music - amazing how great music can add to an already great game.

      This interlacing history is wonderful to hear - I didn't know the two were seen as rivals. I played both, so that should tell you something. It made upgrading the computer well worth it!
