The Mysteriacs' blog links to this article today, which states that
"Producers Hunt Lowry [Donnie Darko, The Last of the Mohicans] and Mark Johnson [Chronicles of Narnia] have partnered with Adrian Vanderbosch and Isaac Testerman of Mysteria Film Group."
Adrian quotes Cory Lanier of Roserock and Tom Williams of Gran Via as the executives that will actually work with them along the preliminary stages.
With the release of Stoneship: The Curse of a Thousand Islands Cyan Worlds is lowering the prices of all its games on the AppStore for a limited time!!
So if you want Cyan's games on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad this is the right time to go and download them!!!
Unlike many of you may think, Stoneship, the new game released by CyanWorlds, has nothing to do with the Myst Universe. Except for the name of course.
This new game, developed for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, is a "lighthearted new direction for Cyan Worlds", but it is still on the same genre our favourite game company masters: puzzles!
Stoneship is all about pirates and sailing the seven seas to fight agaist them.
You can buy Stoneship from the AppStore at the price of 2.99$. Click here to visit the AppStore

Members of the Guild of Writers have recently announced the opening of two public Uru shards. One is called The Deep Island Shard and is administered by diafero. The Guild of Writers forum now has a subsection specifically devoted to The Deep Island Shard. The GoW Forum’s user database has been integrated into this shard so that users can log in using their regular Guild of Writers username/password information. The other shard announced is currently called The UAM Shard and is administered by ddb174, also known as Dustin. UAM is an acronym for Uru Age Manager.
Both shards are designed to assist Age developers by providing them with multi-user test environments. Both are Alcugs shards, set up with all fan ages and the latest version of the Offline KI. Alcugs is an acronym for "Alternative Live Compatible Uru Game Server” and represents the open-source alternative Uru server stemming from reverse engineering efforts that began in 2004. Offline KI is a descendant of that same reverse engineering effort, bringing on-line Ki functionality to Uru:CC installations. It now works closely with Drizzle and is currently maintained by diafero. The Uru Age Manager is maintained by ddb174 and is a tool in the Drizzle collection. According to the Guild of Writers wiki, “Drizzle is a multipurpose Plasma toolkit written in Java.”
According to diafero:
Technically, the two Shards are very similar - latest Alcugs version, latest Offline KI, all fan- and converted ages. DI [The Deep Island Shard] has a slightly more recent version of the Offline KI since I put unreleased development versions on there…
ddb174 summarized the two shards by saying: Читать дальше
