With the recent notification of MO:UL's closure on 4/4/08, besides continuing to help players in the GoG Bevin, our webteam is also refocusing some of our energies to improve our existing walkthroughs for the other games in the Myst series (Riven, Exile, Revelation). We realize that hints and guides already exist in other gaming sites. However, the walkthroughs on these sites is several years old. It is time to update at least the appearance, to hopefully appeal to a new generation of Myst players.
As usual, we're open to your thoughts and suggestions.
Not to stifle development but what is the point? There are plenty of sites out there already that encompass the D'niverse as a whole, is yet another site like that needed?
The argument that these walkthroughs are old only work when it comes to something like MOUL, given that Riven etc doesn't have a change of content.
If you really feel the need for other walkthroughs then I would suggest offering up links to sites that have them instead.
I would encourage the GoG to improve on their walkthroughs. I personally found the Minkata walkthrough to be spectacular, and couldn't find anything else like it on the web. (Thanks, GoG!) Additionally, it gives them something to do to remain banded together after the closure. It would be a shame to loose the wonderful team they have when the Cavern closes, so redirecting their talents in other areas would be a recommended choice. Not to mention it would suck to loose 1 Guild while the other 4 find ways to keep going.
