Shorah and greetings once again fellow Myst fans! Mysterium 2009 is just two months away! The Mysterium Planning Committee is gearing up for it at full steam, and we’ve got a boat-load of updates for you today.
First, we’re pleased to officially announce our logo contest winners! Two of them, in fact! This years t-shirt designs are from the lovely and talented Jean Fioca, and the equally lovely and talented Claire ‘Shoomlah’ Hummell.
Jean created this year’s front design, a lighthearted celebration of the 10th Mysterium ever.
By Jean Fioca
Claire gives us the back design, a unique representation of all the Myst games to date. See if you can spot all the references!
Our t-shirts will be screen-printed this year. Because of this, we are taking pre-orders on shirts with registrations to get an accurate estimate of how many we need to print. As a result, if you want to ensure you get a shirt, we strongly recommend that you pre-register! Shirts are $14 each for Small through XL sizes (and $15 for XXL shirts). You can order your shirts by visiting the Mysterium website and pre-registering to attend here.
Thank you to all our entrants, you make voting fun! All of this years entries can be viewed here.
Once again, the Mysterium committee is reaching out to our talented community for Myst-themed items that can be given away as prizes at this year’s events. Last year, people went home with limited edition Riven keychains, beautiful handmade books, and unique swag… what will we have for the attendees this year?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to donate a prize. Thanks so much for helping make Mysterium happen!
