Yeah, Minish Cap is REALLY Puzzle-Heavy. If you're looking for something new, I'd recommend Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons, also available on your 2DS. Less puzzley, and very Zelda-y.

Ok, so I don’t need a box set of all the Myst games in the shape of a linking book with a built in lcd screen that looks just like the books in game and plays fly-overs from all the Myst games when you open it up...

...but I really want it.

That's-a spicy ruling!

It's been so long, but wasn't Mitchell a total twat anyway? I feel like I remember Wiebe sort of being bullied by the community, but can't recall why.

Looks like Kingdom Hearts 3 will have its own equivalent to the Game & Watch minigames...

Few days left to get in on the Myst 25th anniversary Kickstarter:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1252280491/myst-25th-anniversary-collection

For a $49 pledge you will get all of the Myst games updated to work on Windows 10.

There's also some other stuff like a linking book with a working display.

Feel a little bad about how much I spent on that.  For example, I have pretty much the worst handwriting in the world and rarely ever use a pen... but am I going to fill up that inkwell and use it to write out my rent check every month?  Yeah, yeah I am.

If it was available for Mac, I'd have backed it as a gift for my wife who used to be Myst crazy.
FINE

Did you see the post where all of the games will be available for mac (except one of the remakes of the original Myst I think)?  The only catch is they will be digital downloads, and won't be included on the physical discs for manufacturing / timing reasons.

Here’s the text from the update:

Mac News and More!
Posted by Cyan, Inc. (Collaborator)
Mac Update!

Finally! We’ve got some great news for Mac folks! We’re going to have Mac versions of all* of the Anniversary Collection! We’ve teamed up with some really amazing people at Codeweavers who specialize in this sort of thing (and are also Myst fans), and they’ve been able to make macOS versions of all the games* from the Windows versions — no additional emulation software is required.

 
 
* There are a few caveats, so keep reading…

First Caveat: Myst: Masterpiece Edition is giving us trouble. We’re working on it, but we’re not sure about it. Soooo… we’ll be converting the original Myst to fill that hole.

Second Caveat: The Mac versions will likely be digital downloads only. As much as we’d love to include them on the discs, because of the timing of the conversions, and the evolving MacOS platform, we can only promise digital downloads at this time. If you sign up for the Bookmaker tier or higher you will still receive discs, but our plan at this time is that they will contain the Windows versions.

Third Caveat: Flux. Any of this could change - for the better or for the worse. Because there is testing going on right now, we want you to be aware that there is a little room for some wiggle, but we’re obviously feeling very secure about the Mac versions.

Kickstarter Live

Hey, let’s try one of these Kickstarter Live things. Rand can make it on Thursday at 11:00am PDT (6:00pm UTC). How does that look for you? Great! It’s a date.

Another Milestone

And while we were busy with everything around here, we managed to pass the 1.5 million dollar mark! That is amazing! We’re looking forward to hitting the 10,000 backer mark soon, too! So exciting!

Thanks so much!

The Myst 25 Team at Cyan

The update I just got for the Myst Kickstarter says they are now going to offer Mac discs, during the survey process people will be able to chose Windows or Mac if you got a reward involving a disc.

So, there is now a pack of ships for Star Citizen that costs $27,000.
Seems a bit pricey for a game suck forever in alpha....
