The very thought of Schrödinger brings shivers to cat lovers everywhere. And, following the same analogy, explorers want to know if their beloved cavern is safe for now or if they'll have some warning if it ever becomes in danger of being lost to them.

It's pretty obvious that Cyan is simply too busy with other (hopefully profitable) projects to concern themselves with details like updating the CAVCON meter, but they are maintaining the cavern, so it's not like they've forgotten about it. I like to believe that they see some value in keeping it open - whether it's for maintaining good relations with the fans or just because they like it - and that they'll keep it open as long as they can even if it cost them to do so.

They are working on the VR game Firmament right now. (link) so I guess all their time has been put in to that. Still, it'd be nice to see some kind of recognition of Uru from them, even if it's just to say "we're still here."

P.S. I had to Google what Schrödinger's cat was. :roll:

Not true, I'm afraid. As far as they've indicated, Firmament has been shelved since March.

The only project in progress (that anyone knows about) is the 25th anniversary box set and the associated re-releases. (All the Myst games are now on GOG, and will be publically available on Steam next week.)

The games have already been updated on Steam, though Exile and Revelation are not out yet there.

HMMM.... In the US I got all the games via Steam on 9/11...I don't like GOG so I can't verify or deny.

Myst 3 and 4 were made available on Steam for Kickstarter backers a few days ago. Cyan says they will be available to the general public (on Steam) on the 24th.

Oh, I did not know that. Any particular reason why? As it's VR I don't know if I'd have played it (don't have any access to VR currently) but it's sad to hear of any Cyan project being put on hold.

As an aside I'm still sending donation in, so I hope it's helping them out at least a little bit.

Still no update to CaveCon. I hope it's at least in the black. I just set up a recurring monthly donation so I hope it helps Cyan out.

Hey all @ Cyan. Any update on the state of Moul(a)? ... A nod or wink would be nice to see.

I'm with you 100% on this, Charura.
Since it doesn't appear that anyone within Cyan is going to pick up where RAWA very understandably left off on keeping the community - and especially those of us who are regular CAVCON contributors - apprised of the health of the CYAN shard, I really wish they would hand off the responsibility to a small coalition of trusted community members (GoMe?)
Unfortunately, Cyan's longstanding policy of keeping business/financial matters close to their vest makes such a collaboration unlikely.
We like to think that our CAVCON donations go into some isolated fund, almost as if it were a separate business. Were that the case, transparency about CAVCON specifics might be less of an issue.

Yes, it would be nice to know where the money is going. I recently had a month off between jobs so cancelled by monthly donation until pay from my new job started coming in. I'm kind of hesitant to re-start the donation though as there has been no communication whatsoever about CAVECON.

Is there anyone within the community who Cyan kind of listens to who might be able to let us know something?

From the latest All Guilds Meeting summary -

Quote:
Don’t forget to donate to keep the Cavern open! The CavCon status has not been updated yet; internal sources assure that the situation is good, but that can only continue with your help.
