Check out this Kickstarter campaign: (I just backed it and thought it would appeal to others who love Myst)
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1255217702/quern-undying-thoughts

Looks amazing. Makers state it was inspired by Myst and it clearly has a very Riven-esque feel about it. :D

Let’s not forget The Eyes of Ara, while we’re at it.

Yup, backed this project a few days ago, the first one since Obduction. My record for backing successful Kickstarter projects is currently 100%, so I'm hoping my streak holds out. I'll probably back Eyes of Ara as well. It's looking like 2016 may turn out to be a banner year for Myst-style adventure games. :D

Both of these look very tempting. I must check the budget :)

Congratulations!!! to the developers of both games for having been 'Greenlit' ... :P

They both are really looking very promising in many respects, and I have to say, as I've mentioned on the GoW forums already, 'Quern - Undying Thoughts' is the most Myst/Riven-like game I've ever seen ... I am sure no real Myst fan would want to miss this one ... I'll go on keeping my fingers crossed ... :D

Hi, everyone, did anyone read the latest update for 'Quern-Undying Thoughts'? ... :P

Wow! I was just listening to one of Quern's soundtracks, for which they've given written and illustrated insights to the creative process, and how they compose, adapt and integrate ambient and other sounds and music in general ...

Here's the link to this update, please scroll down to listen to one of the newly created 'Original Soundtracks' ... :)

Besides that let's keep our fingers crossed as 'The Eyes of Ara' and thus Ben resp. the '100 Stones Interactive' has only 6 days to go to reach that KS goal ...

I myself wish both 'Zadbox Entertainment' as well as 'Ben Droste' the very very best of luck, success and fun ... What they're creating and how they're doing it and are going about it etc. is just fantastic ... :D

Am I the only one posting here atm lol ??? ... /slowly looking left and right ... :mrgreen:

Since 'The Eyes of Ara' made it since July 1st ... Yeah!!! Congratulations Ben and all Backers!!! ... :P

... and since Wamduskasapa from the GoW forums and many other explorers and adventurers of the Myst/Riven/Uru/Obduction realms are beating the drum now for 'Quern - Undying Thoughts' as much and wherever they can, I thought I'd give out another shout here too, as there are only 15 days left to reach their goal and still some more Pounds/Dollars/Euros etc. needed to get there ... :)

The guys from Zadbox have listened to the Backers and recently added more pledge tiers to fill those 'money gaps', and to inspire more fans of course to join in, which might be very interesting for many of this very creative community, they've added a physical soundtrack pledge and a physical artbook option, and I believe they're just doing an awesome job with everything ...

For all who haven't seen it yet, I'd like to quote just a few features mentioned on the Kickstarter page to whet some appetite ... Yeah, that's it for now, and maybe one or the other likes to head into a new and exciting adventure ... :D

Quote:
We are working on the English texts and voice over for now, but we plan to translate the game to at least three other languages: German, Spanish and Hungarian.

For now, we are developing the game for Windows, Mac and Linux but we hope to be able to reach PlayStation and Xbox consoles as well.

We are already testing Oculus Rift with satisfying results and we are eager to work with it, and make Quern a more believable experience.

The game in it’s current state works perfectly with 4:3, 16:9 and 21:9 aspect ratios and we are working on interface optimization for 4k to make it ready for future standards.

Quern - Undying Thoughts is now at 71% with only 13 days to go.
The Pledges have SLOWED Down and THEY NEED our help. If this Game fails to make their Kickstarter we will be kicking our backsides.
This Picture shows the activity from 1 July to the present..
