Cyan cuts deal with Legendary to create a TV series based on Myst:

Quote:
Cyan Worlds has signed a deal with TV show maker Legendary to develop the Myst video game into a TV series.

…Cyan is teaming with Legendary Television & Digital Media (giving them an option to make the TV series) because it believes that it is now possible to express the Myst world in a visual linear medium, said Blake Lewin, vice president of business development at Cyan.

Legendary also has a record of building amazing entertainment that reaches a larger audience, and it is possible to link the TV show to new kinds of transmedia.

“Cyan’s goal in working with Legendary is not just to create a compelling TV drama, but to develop a true transmedia product that will include a companion video game that extends the story across both media,” Lewin said. “With 70 percent of tablet owners use their device while watching TV, Cyan sees the potential to push the boundaries of interactive storytelling to a new level.”


I haven't seen an official statement from Cyan (or Legendary, for that matter), but they apparently have a quote from Blake Lewin, so I'm assuming this is legit. Exciting times.

EDIT: Replaced link with a much better source.

EDIT 2: Cyan's official Twitter account just posted the same link, so I'll call that confirmation. Whee!

ahh, thank you for starting a new topic. I was posting links over in Robyn's TV thread, thinking there was some mix-up in the news. Totally different thing, I assume.

Here are the other links I was reading this morning:

Thanks, Kaelri and catherwood, for the info ... :P

As I've just said on the Cyan forums I am excited and love to see Cyan expanding ... I believe very strongly that they didn't and generally don't make such momentous decisions lightly, means that they thought everything thoroughly through, with reckoning and evaluating everything etc., and know what they're doing, and in which way it might serve them and all and everything involved etc. ... 8-)

So, whatever keeps and makes them more independent, happy and thriving, I'd say, yeah, go for it, Cyan!!! ... :D

has anyone worked out whether the new tie-in game is one Cyan will be developing or whether they have handed the rights for the game over too? I guess Cyan can't develop two games at once but we know they have had thoughts about a new Myst-canon game - does this development kill that possibility off, do you think?

Nothing announced. (You can read all the announcements, they all have the same information.) Quite possibly nothing decided yet.

Depends if this deal includes enough up-front money for them to hire another team.

But Rand has given a number of recent interviews saying how much he's enjoying being back in charge of a small team. So I can't see him lightly giving that up. My guess is that they've handed this new "thing" over....

Edit - just spotted Cyan comment on Twitter - "more information will come about this" [ie who is developing the game] "at a later date"

Whoa, wait, Blake Lewin is part of Cyan now? When did that happen? Last I heard, he was the Gametap guy.

Any reason The Stranger couldn't be white? Given the timeline, and the region the book was found in it stands to reason the Stranger could be Spanish or English.

I'm not convinced there will actually be a Stranger.

I picture this being about Atrus, Catherine and Yeesha, just after Revelation, but before Uru. Maybe just after The Book of D'ni.

Yeah, I didn't notice either, until yesterday, and I should have. I'm wondering if it was edited very, very recently.
