Oh wow. That looks great. It's amazing to see how the island has evolved over the years.

(Oh BTW, the photo you have from 2001 is actually from the 2012 iPad version which has much better graphics than the 2001 version)

I wonder if Cyan would be willing to do this for some of their other games in the Myst Saga

Well Riven they've handed over to the Starry Expanse people and they currently don't own the rights to Myst III and IV. That leaves Uru and Myst V, which, while it would be nice, is unlikely for them given that they are know busy with their other project not related to Myst.

Thanks for the clarification, Vector!

:D "My" 2001 photo is the one Cyan uses for realMyst on their home page! :lol: If you don't mind, I'll add your two images to the OP so they all can be viewed together in the proper order.

(BTW, have you checked your thread at the GoW lately??)

The sudden appearance of all that plant life seems worthy of a Yeesha quote



Too bad I can't remember any

Perhaps something that combines Myst 5 End of Ages and Uru CC, I often wondered If Myst 5 was originally new content for Uru Live, and if so does Cyan have those files sitting around collecting dust some place

Yes, all the content in Myst 5 was originally intended for Uru. Unfortunately, event transpired that made that impossible. So they used that content, completely reworking it to make a new game.

Some of the choices for changes are interesting. For instance, Atrus seems to have had to take strong preventative measures to protect the tree wall from pigeons now that some of the trees around it are gone.

Indeed. Like the spikes that were around the tree elevator in the original was removed in all the previous remakes, but have now returned.

It would make a cool update for Uru CC assuming they still have the original version

I think the 'original versions' were in various states of partial completion when the decision was made to redesign them for use in Myst V. The 'original versions,' as such, were probably never finished.

It'd be a challenge to port these ages to Uru:CC or MOULa and do it well, but it's by no means impossible - Cyan Worlds did that for K'veer back during MOUL when they had funding.

It's just another in a long list of things we don't currently have the resources to do. :|

But to return to the original topic: If this new version of RealMyst (RealMyst: Masterpiece Edition - which looks great, BTW) is successful, maybe things will get better for the fanbase in other areas as well. It's possible that this game will reignite some public interest in all things Myst, including Uru. We might see a bunch of new players here... but more likely it'll be a small blip, a modest and temporary uptick in players joining MOULa... sort of like how the iPad realMyst sold well but didn't translate into much change for Uru.
