Crowdsourcing Mornings: Myst 25th Anniversary Collection

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the epic game that became your world, Cyan is offering a never-been-done-before, historical anthology of the complete series, along with some special, Atrus-approved, authentic game artifacts!  The collection and artifacts will be packaged in a unique box – available only through this Kickstarter, with a limited run, for a limited time.  (Seriously, the games will be available later, but the special packaging and artifacts will not be sold again!)

In the fall of 1993, Cyan released Myst – the surreal, graphical adventure game that provided an entirely new kind of experience for millions of virtual explorers.  Surpassing Cyan’s wildest expectations, it not only became the bestselling PC game of the 20th century, it also had a direct influence on popular culture.  Over the years, Myst has brought together communities of passionate fans and has been referenced in television shows, movies, books, comics, and more.  Myst has also inspired other creators as they built their own unique realms.  Myst has even earned spots in the Smithsonian Institute, MoMA, and other notable museums.

Looking back on this incredible, 25-year journey, Cyan believes a celebration is in order!  They recognize this amazing achievement could not have happened without each and every one of you who have found your way to this Kickstarter.  You have embraced the intricacies, oddities and mysteries in the Myst worlds – and have come back for more.  So, as 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Myst, Cyan is taking our journey together one step further.  With the needed agreements secured, they’re delighted to present the Myst 25th Anniversary Collection, featuring all seven titles in the Myst series!

As of May 11th, this project has raised $1.7 million of their $247,500 goal.  This project has 12 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $49, you will get digital versions of seven games.  For a pledge of $99, you will get digital versions and DVD’s of seven games.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
