Back when The Manhole was submitted to Apple, Chogon had this to say (emphasis mine):

Right now, we are working on Riven and a yet un-announced app that is a bit different than other Cyan games.


Go to http://cyanworlds.com now and see if you can find something related to that statement. Don't worry, it's not tough.

Really excited about this, Cyan! :D

Wow didn't see that coming, but yeah I'm excited to see how this works out. Do you suppose that it will actually be related to Myst as the title suggests or do you think the title is just a little nod to us fans?

Very interesting!

And I guess stoneship is just a work-on-progress name.

Interesting. This could easily take place in the distant past or future in the same world as the Stoneship island.

My first thought was that this could be related to the Black Ships, but that's from a different age, so that's unlikely.

BTW, Cyan, that new banner makes your sidebar navigation do this (in Safari 5 anyway):

It's usually floating neatly a bit more than that. (See any of the other pages.)

Edited to add:

Stoneship is already getting some press! (Okay, that's 'cause I sent it in…) http://toucharcade.com/2010/08/19/from- ... stoneship/

Glad to see this making the rounds.

Part of me is sad to see Cyan Worlds has to make casual games instead of great wonderfully-detailed worlds with rich storyline...but if it may get us closer to the goal, I'm all for it :)

Great music! Is that from Tim Larkin?

Edit: Or no, iTunes puts Tye Hooley in for the artist. I know he's been there awhile… But new music talent at Cyan?

Pirates?!? 8)

Nothing wrong about "causal games" (if that's what it is), actually they can be hard to design, and if they're done cleverly they can be well worth it.

HOO! HO! HAHAHA! HEE!

I'm probably wrong, but I seem to remember Cyan has tried to do casual games a couple of times before and gotten stopped because their publisher wanted more Myst. Maybe they are finally getting to do what they wanted to quite awhile ago.

Either way, Stoneship looks very cool. I can't wait to play it!
