Hello! Hopefully some of you have been able to rejoin society as things begin to reopen for the Summer.
Myst IV Panel Questions
As we mentioned in our previous post, we have Brian Wrench and Meinert Hansen joining us this year for a panel on Myst IV: Revelation. To facilitate question gathering for this panel, we have decided to request questions in advance. Feel free to ask anything, as long as it’s on-topic. Submit questions using this form by July 15. Currently this is the only panel for which we’re planning to require pre-submitted questions. If that changes, we will give plenty of advance notice.
Since we won’t be together in person, our usual marker missions involving markers scattered around the hotel won’t be possible this year. Instead, we are running one in Myst Online! If you aren’t familiar with Myst Online, that’s ok! We put together a guide for you. The game itself is also free! There are some steps that you’ll need to do to prep for marker mission participation, and that part can be time consuming, so don’t wait! See our Marker Missions page for instructions and additional information.
Registration for Mysterium 2021 Online is now open! As with last year, all events will be streamed, and registration is not required to watch; however, you will need to register (it’s free again this year) to participate in any interactive content. See our Registration page for details.
We have a few more special guests to announce:
- Chuck Carter helped create the artwork for Myst. He is currently working on a playable version of the original concept for the Selenitic Age using Unreal Engine 5.
- 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. Myst fans know him for his upcoming Myst Documentary.
Check out their full bios and the complete list of guests on our Special Guests page.
We’ll have more to announce in the coming weeks. Hope to see you all online next month!
