Nice, nice!

I hope it can keep up like that. Reviews are good, but we'll see.

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. :?


You can put all the pages in (except the very last) without rescuing either brother, if that's what you mean.

Hello !! :-)

It's a great news that Myst is at last available on the App Store... :D

But I'm afraid it's only in English... :cry: Are you planning to include other translations in the near future... ?

Many thanks ! :-)

François

I bought this and it's fantastic. Well done Cyan :D

Number 4 in Adventure Games, 31 for all games, 54 for all apps here in the UK.

In the Dutch store: 9th overall, 4th in the games category, and 1st in the adventure category. :D Beat that! :twisted: :lol:
I hope Myst will be number one soon! :D

Man! I stop watching for a day... I should have known that Erik grumblings would have an affect. ;-)

This is a lot of fun and exciting. Haven't seen days like this in a while. Thanks everyone!

Yes. Let me see if there is something we can use for submitting bugs to, like what was used for UruLive.

FEATURE REQUEST: Make the linking animations loop, rather than only playing once. It'd also be nice to see the opening link to Myst in full screen, but that's just being picky.... :)

Unfortunately, the iPhone MoviePlayer does not a have a loop flag and when you restarted it when it finishes there is a delay before it starts again. Hmmm, maybe there is some effect we can do while the movie is re-rolling.

Nothing is wrong with the birds . . . . . now! :lol:

Now you're killing me. I have to know what was wrong with them!

Mystdee reported this bug: If you spin around at the dock for awhile you will crash.
When I was debugging it I found that the birds animation (done with flip animation instead of a movie) were causing the iPhone to run out of memory and then crash. So, when I fixed it I put in the bug report: "you will no longer crash when getting dizzy at the dock." Which Mystdee replied: "Oh good!!! it's a blonde thing LOL"

No plans at the moment but that could change ;-)

Yes, it has been VERY exciting and all the comments are fun to read.

Heh, yes, the dizzy blonde . . . that would be me ;)

:? what I also wonder is why it says it was released on April 22, 2009 !

Oh dear. Looks like release dates are still handled in the same unfortunate way. Chogon, weren't you aware of the ways to work around this?

Rand fixed it this morning to read May 2, 2009. I'm not sure how long it takes to update, though.

Thanks,
Chogon

Can you have more than one movie instance? When I've had problems like this, I queue up a second instance, pause it, and have it ready to play for a seamless branch.

This goes back to my high school AV crew days showing films using changeover controls between two projectors for seamless continuation between two reels. I still notice all the cue dots on films. ;)

Now that cursed game is a threat to my, and all of our, free time again. Myst is coming out as an app for the iPhone.

You'd better get started practicing ways to hide your iPhone from your boss. I suggest the 'under the table, held between the thighs' method.

That's great, I really hope the money will help in making new games or whatnot... you know, another myst spinoff could be great. Not uru. A different thing. Different interface and everything. Maybe playing as a d'ni before the fall. Or... another myst book, about alshender or something! or a MOVIE! YES A MOVIE! :D :D

Well, I shouldn't get my hopes up :lol: .

But really, I hope the money here will help you get back for a while... I'm no expert but I'll say the best thing for you is to make different games, for other companies. You said you had some game concepts, didn't you?

Nope. You can only have one movie in memory at a time on the iPhone (otherwise it starts tripping over itself and plays parts of both movies) besides the limitation on app memory.
The MoviePlayer on the iPhone is really good at playing one movie full screen, forward, once. We've submitted several feature requests to Apple that would be needed for something like Riven.

Thanks,
Chogon

And I wouldn't be concerned that the Apple platform will continue to have restrictions like this for very long.

While it may mean more work for developers like Cyan, it sounds like Apple is seeing the iPhone/iPod as an attractive gaming platform:

Cool. In that case I won't be bothering Mystdee with my bug reports (that she has graciously offered to enter into the internal bug tracking for me). One of them was the same as shown by greendragoon above, by the way. Of course, between following all the buzz here, I hardly get time to play the game, let alone write bug reports! :)

Whew, relief! :) Yep, it shows as May 2 here now. And ranks 15th among all paid apps, 7th in games, and 1st in adventure games. Good job!
