Myst Online's Demise And The Future Of Cyan Worlds
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Gamers With Jobs has posted a new interview with Cyan Worlds' Rand Miller. The discussion covers the demise of Myst Online: Uru Live, recenly shut down by GameTap. The interview also covers Rand's feelings about the MMO market and the developer's plans for the future.

Rand Miller is the co-creator of one of the most successful video game titles of all time: the Myst series. Until Will Wright decided to own the space with endless SimVariants, the franchises 12 million copies sold proved that serious games could sell. Myst remains one of the seminal titles of video games on any platform. It taught a legion of game designers how to make photorealistic settings and CD-quality sound design matter at a time (1993) when the world was just discovering how to use 3d textures in Doom. It exposed millions of gamers to the joys of unashamed exploration at a time when blowing things up was what the cool kids were doing.
The interview is available for download from the website below.
