Re: Linking?

I don't see the point of that. If the Millers had really wanted to do that, it wouldn't have been that difficult for them to do. So I take the fading to black as canon. The explosions of colour appearing on the firemarble powered linking books is about the closest that anything gets to expanding in ...

Re: hahaha wow

Well you can tell that the track has recently been extended, because there is that long straight section at the end between the tower and the cliff face, which wouldn't make much sense if you were still designing the track from scratch. You'd just have a more shallow grade up to the cave.

Re: Which Game Had the Best Art-Direction?

Riven, then Exile

Only problem with Exile is that it was really the beginning in the series of unnecessarily complicated devices and doors.

Re: Real Riven, real characters?

Do you have any character assets that you are prepared to show us?

On the subject of the voices, do Cyan have the original copies of the recordings in high quality?

Re: The Myst Ages From Best to Worst!

As I said, I used to really like Edanna... until some git pointed out how improbable it all was, which kinda ruined it for me... :x

Re: Your history with Myst.

My introduction to Myst was seeing the dramatic CD art with the falling man on it sitting in the CD cabinet growing up and wondering who it was and what happened in the game (my expectations were quite different to reality). Apparently it had come bundled with Mum and Dad's Windows 95 desktop, and t...

Re: The Great Bridge of Riven

Actually that would be even easier in real time. Thing is though, that would be a long time to be out of control of your character. Its a very long pipe! And for a lot of it in pitch black, you wouldn't know what was happening. Very frustrating for your character. Maybe another option would be for t...
