I looked around for a good independent itouch game site, and I found this one. It's good - i think I'll put it on my blog.

By the time you see it, the Myst article might be the top article - you may need to scroll down. The article is very favorable and the discussion is quite lively and generally very positive.

I did leave a review and noticed all but one person, gave 5 stars :) The comments there have been very positive and I am loving reading them!

The app is at #6 now, ( top paid adventures games) but it has bounced back to 11 then back to 6 so I am wondering if Myst fans have broken iTunes LOL! :lol:

What's wrong with the birds? Also, it probably won't be long before it's in the top 100 paid apps overall!!
On a slightly unrelated note, I was looking at Benoit Sokal's games and I noticed that Syberia 3 is in the works! It was announced in April 2009 so I'm not sure if any of you guys saw yet. It's supposed to be out by June 2010.

I have that same bug. Only the neutral view of the Channelwood tree is affected.

Jay Is Games has posted about Myst, that should bring in some buyers!

Touch Arcade, mentioned above, has a good review

Can't quite remember, and it might be different in the iPhone version... Can you put all of the pages in either book without having to use it? I'd like to get all of the pages for both without needing more than one save file. :?

Myst is now in position 56 of the top paid apps in the US app store. If you narrow it down to games only, it's occupying slot 33.

In a day or two, I'll be surprised if it's not showing up as a featured app, or in staff picks... and once that happens, that'll result in a spike in sales also. Right now, Myst is mainly being picked up by people who follow sites that would have made the game's release known, but over the next few days it'll become visible to those who just like to go looking around the app store for something to play in their down time.

The only thing I'm worried about is if the size will be prohibitive to people who want to buy the game while they're messing around on their iPhone in the middle of the day, rather than sitting at a computer at home.

I'd just like to make a late night chime in to thank everyone who has/will purchase Myst on the iPhone. Your support is awesome!

Well, I hope we will get an update on sales soon. Up until now, most comments are positive, but what really matters are the sales. So yeah, I hope we can know what's up with you later on.

Oh, and I wonder what will you do know. I mean, I bet you'll finish up releasing uru soon (unless it's cancelled too :P ), and than...? a new project, hopefully.

Currently at position 77 here in the UK, with seven 5-star ratings and one 3-star (who calls Cyan lazy... hmm...) - seems quite good, bearing in mind it's been around for barely over 24 hours...

Yes, while a few people complain that the game is too big (with a little bit of them who don't really understand the nature of the game and complain it's a slideshow), all of the comments are positive, both from people who never tried the game and now want to, or people who tried the game and really liked it. I can't wait to see if the sales are really as good as it seems :) .

EDIT: 2 real reviews up until now, both positive :) : http://toucharcade.com/2009/05/02/cyans ... -memories/
