Hello all! We have a few more bits of information about next month’s event.
We’re pleased to announce another set of guests for Mysterium:
- Mike “RIUM+” Ando is Mysterium’s resident mad scientist. When not time traveling, he is often found building Myst-inspired creations (and presenting them at Mysterium).
- Geneviève Lord has had a career spanning five different countries across North America, the Caribbean, and Europe. While with Ubisoft in Montreal, she was the producer for Myst IV.
- Rand Miller co-founded Cyan over 30 years ago, bringing us the worlds of Myst and its sequels, as well as the upcoming game Firmament.
- Philip Shane is an award winning documentary filmmaker, working on such films as Being Elmo and The Beatles Revolution. He is currently kickstarting the Myst Documentary.
Once again, we still have more names to announce, and you can see the complete list (and longer bios) on the special guests page.
If you’ve been to Mysterium the past couple years, you may remember Taniith singing a rendition of “Praise Gehn” to the tune of “You’re Welcome” from Moana. Last year we made it a sing-along, but now is really everyone’s opportunity to participate! Send in your own recording of the song, and we’ll splice together sections of each video to make a complete song. The more submissions we receive, the more fun this will be, so don’t worry if you’re a bit off key. The lyrics are available here, and the details on how to submit your video are available on the submissions page. Please get these in by July 28 so we have time for editing.
We’ve extended the deadline for open mic night submissions to July 26, giving almost an extra week to send your songs in. Submissions for What Would Atrus Build and social discussion topics are still open as well. See the submissions page for more information on all of these.
More to announce, including another round of guests, soon!
