Shorah! This will be a long one, as we have quite a bit to announce, including an important update regarding the Mysterium 2021 hotel.
We are still working out the schedule for the convention, but the bulk of events will be on Saturday and Sunday. Friday content, if any, will only be in the evening (likely no earlier than 5 PM Pacific Time).
As with last year, we will be inviting some special guests to speak at our online convention, and we’re pleased to announce the first batch:
- Meinert Hansen has a slew of credits in games, TV, and movies, but Myst fans should know him as the art director for Myst IV.
- Robyn Miller needs no introduction, but you of course know him as the co-founder of Cyan and composer of the scores to Myst, Riven, and Obduction.
- Brian Wrench now runs a psychotherapy practice in Quebec, but long ago he played Sirrus in Myst IV.
We’ll have more names to announce as the event grows closer. Check out our special guests page for everyone’s full bio.
We’re still accepting submissions for events, so if you have something you’d like to present, please let us know! We will give priority to events submitted by May 31, but if time allows, we will consider anything submitted as late as June 20.
Mysterium 2021 Hotel
The Westin Alexandria will not be cancelling our room block. While there will be no official events held at the hotel, you may book rooms at the Mysterium rate if you wish using the link on our location page. Note: this also means if you booked a room that it will not automatically be cancelled. You will have to cancel the room yourself via the Marriott website or by phone. This is a change from our previous announcement.
Several people have asked if we would be able to once again push Mysterium in DC out a year. We can say now that we do not have a location set for Mysterium 2022. It is unlikely to be in DC, however, as we will be going through the normal bid review process for various cities around the country.
We’ll have more to announce and more special guests soon. In the meantime continue to stay safe, keep in touch on Discord, and enjoy the upcoming Summer.
