All Guilds Meeting - June 2016

Much to talk about in the cavern these days.  With Obduction just over the horizon, there's certainly no lack of activity in the Myst/URU community!  As such, this month's All Guilds Meeting had a few interesting bits of information.

Of course, we have our usual raw and cleansed chatlogs courtesy of Korov'ev, plus a handy summary of what was discussed.

Korman

Hoikas was first to the stage to mention that work on version 4 of Korman, the Guild of Writers' latest Age-building plugin for Blender, was coming along nicely.  The biggest addition will be sounds along with a few other goodies.  There will be a full report on the update when it releases.

Obduction Delayed To July With Release Date

In a backer message sent to those that donated to the Kickstarter campaign, Cyan, Inc. has confirmed a release date for Obduction, but with a catch: it will be in late July instead of June as previously announced.

The new release date has been set for Tuesday, July 26th for PC and Mac. The retail price will be $29.99 for those who didn't donate but want to buy it. Backers have already paid for the game with their donations, and details of how and when the game will be delivered to them are forthcoming. 

Digital purchase methods will be Steam and likely GOG.com and a boxed release is not planned outside of backers who donated to get them.

System specs have been revealed on Steam's Obduction page.  Alex Rich has posted a handy screenshot of said requirements for the Windows version.  UPDATE: ...and the Mac version too!

Keep checking back here for more Obduction updates!

ZED - A Game From Chuck Carter

It's been an interesting few years for adventure games and their corresponding Kickstarter campaigns, with Obduction and its imminent June release being at the forefront of Myst/URU fans' minds.  Quern: Undying Thoughts and The Eyes of Ara were also successfully funded.

Now, a new game has appeared and it has a strong connection to Myst: Chuck Carter, formerly of Cyan, Inc. and part of the team that brought the original Myst to life, has revealed his own adventure game: ZED.

The game is being developed by Mr. Carter's own Eagre Games, and the screenshots and video so far are quite a sight to behold!  They are hoping to raise $48,000 in the next 30 days, with a nice list of perks for various donation amounts. Read more

Music from the Ages

Karel will once again be playing 'Music from the Ages' on Sunday, June 19th at 13:00 KI time in DRC(1059) Hood (which will be bumped in the Nexus), so be sure to stop in!
 
Karel will be playing L'Age des sons 2 music this week, with a few tracks from HALO: Combat Evolved game as pre-event music. The music stream can be found at this link on the day of the event.

This continues in the spirit of the nice sessions started by the very-missed Patricio.

Each session includes some of the background story and description for the Ages and characters mentioned in the game. Don't worry NO SPOILERS.

Karel hopes to see you there, but if you can't make it, you can always just listen to the music stream. smiley
