We have six weeks to go before Mysterium! Are you excited? Here’s the latest news, and our next special guest:
We currently have just under 200 people registered, which is amazing! This is going to be a heck of a year, and we hope everyone who wants to can come take part. However, we can only fit so many people in our event space, so we are going to cap pre-registration at roughly 225 people. We’ll still have some badges available for walk-in registration, but if we hit that number before August we’ll have to close down online sales.
We’re extremely excited to announce that our next guest is Marty O’Donnell.
Marty has worked on everything from Flintstones Kids commercials to the multi-award-winning Halo games series. Myst fans, however, will know him as the sound designer for Riven. Where do you think they got the name of the Ytram?
These days, Marty is co-founder and co-owner of Highwire Games in Seattle. Their first title, Golem, is an exclusive title for Playstation VR and will be released in 2019. He has also composed and produced Echoes of the First Dreamer, the musical prequel to Golem, which is currently available.
Find out more about Marty, and all of our special guests, at our guests page.
In celebration of 20 years of Mysterium, we’re compiling stories, photos, and memories from the years we’ve spent with our wonderful community. If you haven’t already, please take a look at the Mysterium Memories page for more information. We anticipate using the memories you submit on-site at Mysterium this year in a slideshow format, so we’d love to hear from you! Submissions will be open until the convention begins.
In case you missed it, ZED launched a little over two weeks ago! ZED is the story of an aging artist, lost in regret and the haze of dementia. It was made by former Myst artist, and Mysterium special guest, Chuck Carter, and was published by Cyan’s publishing arm. It’s a beautiful game, and everyone on Mysterium staff highly recommends it. You can find out more about ZED at Cyan’s site, here.
If you enjoy ZED, please consider giving it a quick review. Everything helps!
That’s all we have today. We have a few more surprises for you, so keep an eye out over the next few weeks.
