Hey, why did no one post about this? We have been gifted with access to some very early prototypes for what would eventually become "URU: Ages Beyond MYST" (sorry, for Windows PC only). Eric Anderson posted about these over on Twitter earlier this week, and there was quite a flurry about it on at least one of the Discord servers.

Here’s a fun treat for all the Myst/D'ni/Uru fans out there…
The original pre-Uru, pre-Mudpie "DIRT/Descent" demo,
in all its fully-playable glory!
Don’t ask us for support,
just cross your fingers and hope it works.
PS: This thing is 19 YEARS OLD!

And for all you HARD CORE fans:
Here is the 20-year-old Pre-DIRT “Nexus” Demo
built before Cyan even acquired Headspin!
It’s so old you need to install a (included) Glide GPU wrapper!
Also, I have no idea how to solve the "puzzle". Enjoy!

Extra Double Bonus!!!!!!
Here is the playable "Hector Cove" demo as well (also from around 2000)...
Because why not - right? Go harass some janky birbs!

HINT: Read the README for keyboard controls. Use the ` (backwards apostrophe) key to access a console to type a command to save progress.

Agreed - this has been discussed elsewhere, but it does belong here too.

For reference, here are the Reddit (first, second and third) conversations and the Guild of Writers' topic.

Plenty of nice stuff in those demos ! I'm really glad they were released :mrgreen: The final version of Uru is less than Cyan intended, but their original vision of the game was awesome. It's so cool to get a glimpse of what Uru could be.

You're welcome.
Sadly the first minutes have very bad quality (because of Youtube MP4 convertion)...
