New Mudpie Shot, Movie Revealed
12:06 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Jim Stephenson's Riven Unofficial Home Page fan site for everything Myst pointed us to some very dramatic new media of Cyan's top-secret "Mudpie" project. One new screen shot of the broadband online game has been released, along with a new movie clip in the same setting. This is the first video to be released for the game, so Cyan fans will want to give it a look.

Apparently, the media was found thanks to an Easter Egg in the re-release of Myst Masterpiece Edition for the Mac. Here are the details from Stephenson's page:

These two goodies were actually hidden in an Easter egg in the Mac version of Myst Masterpiece. The egg sends the player to a hidden Cyan web page. Originally the page just had a "congratulations" message, but about a year ago Cyan added the screen shot and video. When no one found them, a Cyan staffer began dropping hints in Cyan's chat room. Recently, with the help of several other fans, I used the hints to find the egg (apparently I was the first person to find it). I contacted Cyan and they gave me permission to repost the shot and video, but asked that the URL of the hidden "congratulations" page not be revealed.
Fans will definitely want to head over for a look, as both are very impressive visual feats. The screen shot especially shows depth and variation in the Mudpie world not seen before. Stay tuned to IMG for the latest as Cyan leaks out any new information on the game.
