All Guilds Meeting - April 2015

Spring is in the air...well actually, it's a cavern, so you can't really tell...but the All Guilds Meeting continued on anyway!  We've got the usual raw and cleansed chatlogs for those that missed out due to weekend festivities.

Here's what you missed in handy summary form!

The Cleft and Below

Esto [Centura] was first to talk about the group's latest project: an audio recording of The Third Journeyer (the first five volumes of which are now in a handy PDF format!) under their new TCaB Echo radio drama banner!  They are looking for two voiceover artists, one male and one female, to fill the roles.  Auditions are being held every Thursday from now until May 7th in the Cavern Events' Hood.  You can read more at our corresponding news post.

MystiTech Productions

Vector Prime updated the crowd on the latest news from The Lost Art, the group's machinima production.  Filming has been going very well, and they plan to have an event around the D'ni New Year in their hood.  The exact details on that are forthcoming, so check back. Read more

Creators of Myst and Doom Interviewed

In a recent interview of Rand Miller and John Romero, the creators of Myst and Doom respectively, at the NYU Game Center, both of the legendary video game developers shared, among other things, their points of view on the other's game.

Doom and Myst were both originally released in 1993, and both were highly acclaimed, albeit for drastically different reasons. While Myst became synonymous with the graphical adventure game genre, Doom defined the modern first-person shooter genre for many years. According to the interview, their respective creators both initially expressed a feeling of incredulity and anger when they became aware of the others' game. Read more

RealMyst: Masterpiece Edition Out Now

Cyan Worlds, Inc. has released RealMyst: Masterpiece Edition, an update to the original version of RealMyst developed by Sunsoft and released by Ubisoft back in 2000.

Like its predecessor, it uses real-time 3D graphics as opposed to the rendered stills of the original game by Cyan.  In this case, Cyan utilized the popular Unity engine to enhance the visuals of the game.  Players can navigate the Ages by using either the traditional point and click method or using the mouse and keyboard to free roam.

At the moment, the game is only available on Steam and costs $17.99, although those that bought the original RealMyst will get a 33% discount, knocking the price down to about $11.99.

EDIT: The game is also available for Mac at Apple's App Store, also for $17.99.

Grab a copy today and see the Ages of Myst at their best yet!
