EDIT: Obduction was succesfully funded! And Cyan reached their first stretch goal too.
With still 65 hours to go, Cyan's Kickstarter for their new game, Obduction hit its $1,100,000 funding goal! This means that unless people suddenly retract their pledges, the money will go to Cyan and Obduction can be made. It's not over yet, though; there's still time to reach the first stretch goal, which is to add Oculus Rift support and localization to the game, by raising the additional $190,000 required (for a grand total of $1,300,000).
Cyan has already released a celebration video, which you can watch here. Congratulations, Cyan!
For all those of you who have pledged through Kickstarter, remember that you will be debited only when the campaign reaches its deadline. Read more
Winter is coming...and so has another All Guilds Meeting!
Here's a summary of what you missed:
Doobes led the meeting off by talking about Cyan's latest project...Obduction! As was reported on this site earlier, Cyan Worlds is using Kickstarter to fund the game, so be sure to stop by and donate what you can, and hopefully, we'll get to see new worlds made by the creators of Myst and Riven!

During the past few months, there has been much speculation surrounding Cyan's secret new project; the speculation and excitement rose dramatically over the past few weeks, as Cyan dropped various teasers about its upcoming new game. The wait is now over, as Cyan has formally announced its latest project: Obduction, a first-person adventure in the spirit of Myst and Riven and financed through Kickstarter, with an ambitious $1,100,000 goal.

InkWorks Productions is pleased to announce the launch of the Kickstarter for Unwritten: Adventures in the Ages of Myst and Beyond!
Unwritten brings the surreal worlds of Myst and Uru to tabletop role-playing. Using the popular FATE gaming engine, Unwritten gives players the chance to delve into the depths of D’ni’s troubled past, influence the future of the D’ni, and explore or even create new Ages.
The D’niverse has room for any of the stories you want to tell. YOUR story is Unwritten.
The Kickstarter includes some fantastic rewards, including full BETA access, handcrafted arts, and, of course the book itself!
We invite you to become a part of Unwritten, and help bring the Ages of the D'ni from the video game, into the hands of players & GMs.
October's All Guilds Meeting has finished and there was lots to report, the least of which being that Doobes finally stopped slacking and returned to his moderating duties at last! As always, here are the raw and cleansed chatlogs for a little light reading.
Here's what went on this month:
Cavern Tours/Cavern Theater
Zeke365 and Stone started things off to talk about their planned Cavern Tours. They are still in need of planning, including a translation bot (which Stone is working on), but they hope to have something happen in November. Cavern Theater is still being put together. Explorers are welcome to submit what they have to zeke for approval (email@example.com). Events incorporating this material are still to be scheduled.
Guild of Writers
Hoikas came up next to mention that Gehn.17 was recently released. The shard now has 908 active avatars, and the group would like to throw another party at some point in the future (hopefully to bring that total to 1,000!).
