Cyan Worlds

Keep the Myst Movie true to the lore

Myst is one of the few, if not the only, games to bring art and depth to an interactive environment. It came with a mythology and structure, with story and creativity. That is why it managed to attract such a large following. Within the culture of gamers one finds the subculture of the Myst fans, those of us with an appreciation for art, literature, science, and philosophy. We love Myst because it did what most games cannot: it combined freedom, beauty, curiosity, and thought.
That's what us fans would like from a Myst movie. We don't want it to be geared towards mass appeal or large box office sales. We don't want the producers to have a clipboard and piece of paper titled "The 25 things to captivate a wider audience". We want the beauty and artistry that is Myst. We want the depth. We want the compelling story.
And we fear this is not what Cyan Worlds wants.
Cyan, to put it bluntly, your fan base made you, and if you mess this up, we will unmake you.

      I grew up playing the games, and I've recently started reading the books. Myst is essentially my childhood, and it's a part of my life now as an adult. I already know what it feels like to watch one of your favorite stories go up on the screen, only to watch as Hollywood ruins it completely. Myst, to say the least, would be on the top of that list.

      As an artist and a writer, Myst and its concepts have been a driving force behind my art and creative visualization since the first game. The final game, slightly estranged me but it was good none the less... to know now that Cyan may lose their integrity to the masterful creations of the Myst Series would be a true disgrace to the work that was put forth in the first place to create such a world that millions crave its manifestation. Please Rand, use that calm voice and tell them execs in the board room trying to change your essence and spirit... NO

      I've looked forward to this film for years. And been a fan since I was a child in the 90's. To see it sell out breaks my heart. This was to be amazing and epic! Please retake it and don't let something 2nd rate be made

      I'd rather there be no Myst movie at all if it's not up to snuff with the quality of the games and books. Simple as that. No compromise on artistic integrity.

      Love the books, stay true to the story. Be brave, don't make it "hollywood" because so much that comes out of hollywood lately is safe.
