Interesting timing. I wonder if the recent renewed interest in Cyan due to the Obduction campaign had anything to do with bringing this article to the front page. Great to see it there :) .

Wikipedia Article wrote:
Uru took five years and $12 million to complete. It was initially conceived as a multiplayer game, but the multiplayer component was delayed and eventually canceled, although an online version (Myst Online: Uru Live) was available in 2007 and 2008.


I wonder how much truth there is to these numbers. I'm rather astounded and grateful that rather than trashing the whole thing, they turned it over to us to continue the building and expansion. From what I've been able to determine, they've given us a unique opportunity. I've never found anything that really equals MOULa Open Source on the interwebz.

It may not be new and shiney anymore, but a used Rolls Royce is still a Rolls Royce, even if it doesn't have a fully electronic dashboard. They've already made it look new and shiney again on the Gehn Shard. Pretty cool!

And Ruth, I'm with you on the "Rolls Royce" thing! Classy is timeless!!
