Myst Developer’s Next Game Firmament Raises Almost $1.5 Million

Firmament

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.

As part of the Kickstarter update celebrating the success, the team also revealed that ZED, another crowdfunded game that Cyan is publishing, will get more information on Thursday.

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.

Digimon Survive

The opening movie for Bandai Namco’s survival strategy game, Digimon Survive, has been released.

The opening was first shown exclusively at the “Future of Digimon” panel at Anime Expo 2019 back on July 6. The opening shows an earthquake that has hit Kanobe City, as well as some ominous red eyes (presumably Digimon) surrounding an old man in a forest. Near the end, the main character, Takuma, sees a mysterious silhouette of a girl, and the opening finishes with her singing.

Digimon Survive follows Takuma and his companion, Agumon, as they make decisions to stay alive and escape a bizarre dimension.

Digimon Survive will release on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One in 2020.
