OK, I let nearly three weeks elapse before sending in my vote for Myst as a Google Doodle. Hopefully that'll help keep it in the Doodler's minds ;).

I already have an idea for an "Official" 20th Anniversary logo (started back in 2012), but it's not going to be a Google Doodle. :P

Big ole bump to this thread.

After some trouble finally got my account on this forum working again.

Saw this thread a month back, think it's a great idea. Wrote google the following:

Quote:
I really think you guys ought to consider doing a doodle to celebrate MYST's 20th anniversary on Sept 24. The game has been a very positive influence in the gaming industry.

The Myst series is notable for:
-helping the adoption of CD-ROMs
-non-violent, story and puzzle driven gameplay
-promoting literacy
-groundbreaking graphics and music in games
-clearest example of video games as art
-featured in both the Smithsonian and Museum of Modern Art
-key factor in the creation of video games live (Jack Wall was a founder)
-a major inspiration for the tv show LOST

Unfortunately, despite all this, Myst has largely dropped out of public consciousness. So I propose celebrating the 20th anniversary of Myst's release so more people come into contact with what I personally think is a cultural treasure of the internet age.

Thanks for your consideration.
Sincerely,
a Myst fan.


Would like to see more buzz in this thread, see if we can't get google's gears turning.

Well, here's a little buzz for you: that was a fantastic e-mail message! :D

Hopefully, more people have written to Google than have posted here. :)

If you want an idea of what they're capable of, check out this doodle from a few days ago:
