Location Info & Shirt Order Deadline Extension

Shorah!

Can it be that Mysterium is really only 8 weeks away? I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to be in Orlando soaking up the sun and seeing all of my fellow Cyan fans.

I’ve got two updates for you today.

First, the early-bird package of registration + a shirt ends tonight, but we’ve decided to extend T-shirt orders for 1 week. That means that you can still order a T-shirt with your standard badge until June 16th, so visit the Registration page today!

The second thing I’ve got for you is our newly expanded Location Guide.

One of the nice things about taking Mysterium to new cities is the chance to get to spend some time exploring the host city. We’ve never been to the Southeast before, and Orlando’s a great choice since there’s so much to do. Obviously there are theme parks, like Disney, Universal Studios, and Sea World. There are also some really cool attractions, like the Orlando Eye, the Orlando Science Center, Kennedy Space Center, and more.

Visit our Location Guide to see what the team thinks is awesome in Orlando. I know a bunch of people are going to be coming early or staying longer. Want to go to a theme park but think it would be more fun with friends? We’ve started a post in our Facebook group to help you find an exploring buddy or three!

We’ll be updating this guide over the next few weeks to add in more things to do, places to eat, and other items of interest, so keep checking in.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you in 2 months!

Mysterium 2017 T-Shirt Design Announcement!

Shorah to Mysterium fans and friends!

Here’s an announcement I know you’ve all been waiting for: the t-shirt designs!

The designs for this year’s t-shirts were created by Rayne. Her hard work turned out incredible.

Pre-Orders

T-shirt pre-orders are open as a part of registration. If you will be attending Mysterium 2017, you can purchase a t-shirt along with your registration. Shirts are available in sizes from Small to 3XL, in both unisex and women’s cuts!

Please note that shirts are only available on-site. Unfortunately, we are not able to ship shirts to non-attendees.

T-shirt pre-orders end June 9th! So be sure to get your registration in.

Mysterium 2017: Registration Open!

Shorah!

I am happy to make two big announcements we’ve all been waiting for: hotel and registration information!

Hotel

Our hotel will be the Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando International Drive Jamaican Court. We’ve secured an exclusive convention rate of $119/night. This rate includes a suite with two doubles or one king bed, along with a sofa-bed in the second room. All rooms also come with complimentary self parking (the $15/day will be waived for our attendees), wifi, and breakfast cooked to order.

To book your hotel room, please visit our online booking site here. The site will allow you to book rooms between Thursday 8/3, and Tuesday 8/8. Additional nights are available at our group rate, subject to availability. If you require those extra nights, please see here for details on extending your reservation beyond those dates.

Our hotel is on International Drive. I-Drive is a popular part of Orlando surrounded by attractions, restaurants, theme parks, and shopping centers. Our Location page contains many more details about the area, including transportation options.

Registration

Registration for Mysterium 2017 is now OPEN as well! You can find all the details at our registration page here. Until June 9th, the cost for a full weekend is $25, and the cost for a full weekend with a t-shirt is $45. After that date, prices will increase, so be sure to register early!

As a reminder, the deadline for T-shirt logo contest submissions is April 14. We’ll announce the final T-shirt design shortly after that.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you at the Embassy Suites in August!

Special Guest – Chuck Carter

Greetings all, and a special welcome to any Obduction backers who are looking at Mysterium for the first time.

Special Guest

Today, we are happy to announce that we will have a special guest at Mysterium 2016: Chuck Carter will be joining us on Friday and Saturday to talk about his work and generally to hang out with the fans.

ChuckProfile

Chuck, along with Robyn Miller, created the artwork that brought the worlds of Myst to life. After Myst, he worked on a number of other games, including a number of titles at Westwood Studios. He has created artwork for TV shows like Babylon 5, Crusade, and Mortal Kombat Krusades, as well as for motion rides like “Star Trek: The Experience” and Disney’s “Mission to Mars”.

Today, he is the Founder and Creative Director for indie studio Eagre Games, working on their first game, Zed. I gave Zed a try at Pax East last weekend. Trust me, if you liked Myst you’re going to like Zed.

We are very excited to have Chuck joining us. This is going to be a Mysterium you don’t want to miss!

Cyan

We are also happy to announce that Cyan will be involved in Mysterium in some way this year! We don’t know quite what type of involvement yet (whether it will be a video call or actual Cyan employees at the convention), but we will keep you updated as we learn more.

Deadlines

A reminder that Con Book submissions are due tomorrow, and event submissions are due this coming Monday. And don’t forget that registration is currently open!

We know many people are wondering about hotel information. We sincerely apologize for the delay in getting that to you, and we anticipate that we will be able to open hotel bookings in the first week or two of May. We are in the final steps of getting the contract signed right now.

Until next time,
