In the end, under one form or another (U:ABM, UU, MOUL) it's always Uru..
Beside, it's never been actually called simply Uru. It's always been UruSomething or SomethingUru.
So why not go to the lowest common denominator. (plus it's faster to type :shock: )

"URU TANE" URU THE AGES NEVER ENDS

:!: to be shure that it is not tooo stupid, go to : knowledgerush.com/kr/encyclopedia/Tane/ :!:
Tane
In Polynesian mythology, Tane is the god of trees and light, and the first son of Rangi and Papa. As a young boy, he was hunted by Atea. Escaping to Earth, Tane became very hungry and ate a man, becoming the first cannibal. He later killed Atea with lightning bolts, given to him by his ancestor, Fatu-tiri. He created the dawn, as well as the Tui, a bird that was a staple food of the Polynesians.
With Hina, he was the father of Hine-nui-te-Po, whom he later married, not knowing who she was. Upon discovering that she had married her father, Hine-nui-te-Po fled to the underworld, and began ruling there as queen.

Tane's eternal enemy is Whiro. Tane created Tiki, the first man.

it sounds mystic isn't it so :?:




i say it once, i say it twice :D :!:

Uru: Restored Universe. Which, of course, makes "URU". :)

That is fine and dandy, if there was only one iteration of the game, but as I found out last year, Uru mean't in conversation ABM or Prime.
While every iteration is still essentially at heart, Uru, talking with new and old players to the game and explainging to them which iteration of the game you're referring to gets very confusing very quickly, if you all think of different iterations under the heading of Uru.

DIRT - forget this one as it was used for real Myst, but not to forget that it formed the basis of the game engine we all know
MUDPIE
The closed beta before prologue
Prologue
Uru Live - didn't happen
Until Uru - UU
Myst Online Uru Live - MOUL
MORE - didn't happen
???? - The current iteration

that is 8 iterations with 9 coming up next in the next couple of months.

OSUL is neat, but hard to say verbally, and could be depending on accent taken the wrong way and sound like "assault"

This is why i'm for MOOSE: UL, omit UL because it has always been Uru Live at some level, and it can't be taken offensively.

I'll be calling this iteration MOOSE even though the official name will probably be OSUL

DIRT wasn't used for Real Myst, DIRT was its own game which evolved and became Uru. All that it shared with Real Myst was the engine and some screenshots used for easter eggs (I guess some textures too if you want to be picky about it). DIRT was around way before Real Myst was.

I like "Uru". It will be the first time it's used on it's own.

That's exactly it, Grogyan. Uru. Why? Because all of those games have major connections to uru, but none of them have been called it.


Uru is Uru. It's not "Uru Live" or "Uru: Ages Beyond Myst" or anything, It has a history in those, the same as it has one in every game by Cyan to date, AND the two Myst games by Presto/Ubisoft.

We don't forget the past, it led to here.. so we move on to the future as what it should have been. Uru.

Because it has always been the core of what it is, an MMO, where the iterations of the game have been called something else, so that everyone around can know straight up, without fuss, what form the game has taken.

Uru: Ages Beyond Myst -> ABM is an iteration, Uru is not an iteration, its like saying the game uses Plasma, back in 2000, 2003, 2007 and now, but Cyan will tell you that the game engine plasma has changed too much to be just called plasma, so developers give it a tag, usually in the form of digits like 1.4, or 1.5, the same goes for Uru, it is the core, not the iteration that it is currently at.

BTW another iteration I left out is EOA -> End Of Ages

So including this one, that is a total I think of 11 iterations of what is essentially a solid foundation for an an amazing game.

OSUL or my preferred, MOOSE: UL, but just simply MOOSE to save confusion
