Awww, sorry stranger. No, just the source of inspiration for my guess.

Don't believe it. They've got their hearts and souls invested in the Myst-Uru D'niverse. They won't let it die. But, just like everyone else, they've got to put food on the table, so income producing projects will take priority. It might take some time, but it will happen.

I hear all that and I appreciate their situation. But it is rapidly approaching 500 days since shutdown and all we have had is vauge "coming soon" promises which have yet to materialise into anything, We still have no dates for OS release, opening of any Cavern, plugin tool release or anything.

And people are beginning to leave the forums because of this amount of time waiting.

True but some people are coming back. Heck I just joined the Forum this year (even tho' I knew and loved Myst since the 90's) and with the whole iPhone thing that will bring more people into the Myst universe, and the profits from that and future games like Riven and Myst III for the iPhone may be enough for MORE to become a reality. On another note there are more than 60 Fan made Ages waiting for the players to explore as soon as it restarts (some of these of amazing quality). That alone should help the game hit the ground running.

I keep repeating myself. I just feel I must.
We have not yet waited very long since shut down last year. I must remind you that the word then was to wait with no promises for 2 years for Cyan to get the rights back to use the material. 2 years of waiting with no promises, then Cyan would look into what a relaunch would look like. Meaning another year (at least) before any cavern to reopen IF Cyan found that that was something they liked to do.
Instead Cyan made an effort and wiggled loose the right to use MOUL from Turner, sat aside all spare resources to prepare MORE. Very sore that the spare resources turned to dust in their faces. But they rallied the URU cause into the open source project to keep from just dropping URU in the archive.
After all this some say we're behind scedule. I say we're 1-2 years ahead of scedule. And Cyan has proven twice in a short time that URU live and Myst fans are important for them even if there are no profits in URU on the current horizon. I see a company that is holding on to our dream of reopening the cavern. I also see a company that is in a hurry to do so, and would like it if they had the immediate muscle to just do it. I also see a company that has it's mind set on the reopening happening in a way so that the vision they once had is not all lost. I also see a lot of fans that would like it if the vision Cyan once had is not entirely lost.
This is not putting Cyan Worlds on a piedestal.
This is not defending mediocracy.
This is how I see it.
