Do games still use gouraud shading? Probably not, but it’s the only relevant word I could think of that sounded even slightly like ‘gorillas’. Myst is ancient source of division amongst PC gamers, and also one that’s never quite managed to go away. Remade in 2000 as both Myst: Masterpiece Edition and realMyst, with any number of ports and sequels and spin-offs since then, it’s now back again again as realMyst: Masterpiece Edition.
There’s still no sign of a Pyst remake, however. … [visit site to read more]
It’s not hard to see why once-legendary developers who’ve lost their way flock to Kickstarter. Second chances are rare, especially in an industry where a single dud can sink entire 100-person studios. Rebirths and reinventions, meanwhile, used to be damn near unheard of. But now it’s all possible, and wouldn’t you know it? Everyone> you fondly remember from your childhood is coming out of the woodwork. A true Myst revival, however, has been conspicuously absent throughout NostalgiaFest 2013, but then, I suppose it’s only fitting that exploratory, methodical puzzling took its sweet time getting to the scene of its own potential resurgence. So then, what exactly is Obduction? Pretty much what you’d expect: a spiritual sequel to Myst and Riven, powered by shiny Unreal Engine 4 tech.
What happened next was caught on a security camera. It can only be described as unbelievable.
Gas in the drainage system unexpectedly caught fire, causing an explosion that sent the 44-pound manhole several stories into the air, before hitting the side of a building.
The man's jacket, not his arm, was blown clean off, and he was lifted up, landing over six feet away from the blast. His arm is visible as he falls out of frame.
The incident occurred on Jan. 29 in China's Hunan Province. This clip was broadcasted on Japan's TV Asahi evening news.
According to TV Asahi, the man suffered burns to his face, but thankfully, neither of the children was injured.
This is like watching Nintendo's Manhole Game & Watch gone very, very wrong. Glad to hear the kids are okay and hopefully the father will make a full and speedy recovery.
Puzzling adventure game Myst, the best way to show off your bad-ass new CD-ROM drive in 1993, may be the next video game to get a big screen adaptation.
According to a report from Deadline, Cyan Worlds' adventure game series has been optioned for "live action film treatment." Producers Hunt Lowry (Donnie Darko) and Mark Johnson (The Chronicles of Narnia) have partnered with Mysteria Film Group, which secured film rights to the Myst franchise last year, in an attempt to bring the franchise to movie theaters.
Does that mean a Myst movie will actually see the light of day? Maybe. Maybe not.
But the filmmakers say they will draw from the Myst game and a series of novels that served as companion pieces. They're looking for a screenwriter now.
