Still Possible

Recorded in: Izy's Journal — Isyldar @ 6:33 pm Cavern Time

Courtesy of Nadnerb, who was able to help me set up the Link, I was able to return to The Cavern today with him to poke around. It’s so quiet down there without everyone else from the Surface. More like an echo of URU than the Cavern we all spent over a year exploring.

Still, it is nice to be able to go back. Perhaps there will come a time when more of us can return, and more Ages will be open for exploration.

It is troubling

Recorded in: Izy's Journal — Isyldar @ 10:38 am Cavern Time

I find troubling the sheer number of setbacks that the MORE project has seen throughout its history; not entirely in its current incarnation, but throughout the entire URU legacy. At first, the project got scrapped before it ever hit the light of day, and then it was pulled because the DRC wouldn’t give Explorers the ability to help with the restoration, resulting in stagnant growth, and another funding pull. Now, with that last key piece of the puzzle for the success of exploring The Cavern, to have funding disappear again…

I am sad.

Yet MORE Delays

Recorded in: News Journal — Isyldar @ 10:33 am Cavern Time

I suppose that it was naive of me to think that I wouldn’t also be affected by the current economic troubles we’re all seeing in the US these days. Cyan recently released this update on MORE:

MORE Urulive status – Strange times

Sorry for the long silence, things have been quickly shifting in these strange times.

Even though the development of MORE Urulive has been progressing (the new account system is nearly done!), I’m sorry to say that outside events have caused us to put this project on indefinite hold.

The MORE project was not funded directly but was riding on the coat tails of other projects. Unfortunately and very suddenly, a major revenue stream to Cyan was disrupted. The current Wall Street problems have had a significant, although indirect, effect.

We have no alternative than to put this project on hold. The ultimate future of MORE UruLive will be determined over the coming months. If or when moneys become available we will reassess the roadmap at that time.

Currently, Cyan is redirecting its priorities to focus only on fully funded projects. Of which, Myst for the iPhone/iPod Touch is one of and that project is progressing very well.

From all of us at Cyan, thank you for all your support.
