Almost USD$1.5 million has been raised during the Kickstarter campaign for Firmament, the next game from Myst developer Cyan Worlds.
The campaign ended overnight, having raked in a total of $1.433 million from an initial $1.285 million goal. The final tally ensured that the game met its first stretch goal, which added Mac support, as well as a PlayStation 4/VR version and English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish language options.
However, the total fell short of the next stretch goal, which would have resulted in the production of developer commentary and a Making Of documentary at $1.5 million
Despite the success, the team will continue to crowdfund the title, though details on that process will not be available until next week. Whether additional funds will contribute to the aforementioned stretch goal is unclear at present.
While the campaign was running, OnlySP spoke to Rand Miller, co-creator and co-designer of Myst, who claimed that “[t]he Firmament narrative is one of the most interesting that we’ve done,” alongside discussing more details about the game and hinting at the future of the Myst franchise.
Firmament is currently scheduled to release in July 2020 on PC, Mac, and PlayStation 4, though which VR platforms will be supported is unclear.
