10:42 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Cyan, the company behind the monster hits Myst and Riven, has just released the first screen shot of their highly-secretive project in development, codenamed Mudpie. The fan site Riven has two versions of the shot, whichdepicts a huge, intricate room with a figure standing in the middle, dwarfed by its surroundings.
Very little is known about Mudpie so far. Cyan has only hinted the game will be played by those with fast (broadband) internet connections in a Myst-like world, all generated in real-time rather than prerenderd. They have also hooked up with Creative Artists Agency, in order to help "create web entertainment," according to a new article in Fortune Magazine. Various specualtions about the game indicate it will be a huge, continuously-evolving online world which will be populated not only by players but by actors in-character performing live as a way of advancing the plot.

Cyan is currently juggling this project, along with a re-make of the original Myst with a real-time 3D engine called realMYST. They are also overseeing Presto's work on Myst III: Exile; both of these titles are due for Mac as well as PC. These are exciting times for the Spokane-based company, and we'll be bringing you much more inormation as these games near completion.
