There will be MORE

Filed under: Nad's Journal,News Journal,Site News — Nadnerb @ 8:26 pm Cavern Time

Cyan has finally reached an agreement with Gametap and they are lining up to restart Uru as “MORE”, or Myst Online Restoration Expiriment, which appears to be based around the idea of user created content (which has become quite advanced on it’s own already) becoming core to the game. Additionally, they (still :P)  intend to release the content creation tools that they used during the development of MOUL along with some source code so that PyPRP and other fan tools can use them for their continued development. They intend to retain central control of the game and keep a single cavern instance, unlike the “shard” model that was used during Until Uru, while still allowing individual game servers to be hosted by more resourceful fans. Today was the day of the “Press Conference” hosted in #CyanChat with Chogon/MarkD (Cyan’s current CTO, former client lead, creator of CyanChat) answering questions about the future of MORE. A condensed version of the proceedings can be found here, and a more complete log here. Guidelines for future conent can be found on the Guild of Messengers site and older guildlines on Cyan’s own legal page.

    This is what I’ve been eager to see all along. :) I’m horrible at developing my own worlds, though I suppose I’ve never tried, but with fan-based content core to the game…The Cavern will breathe again.
