In this intriguing Gamasutra interview, Myst creator Rand Miller fills us in on the past, present and future of the multi-million selling franchise, following its near-death and Uru Live's resurrection by online service GameTap. Miller comments of Uru Live, an online-enabled element to the Myst series: "Well, we've embraced the realtime 3D. Probably a little later than most people, but we also had a pretty high bar to live up to. People expect some pretty phenomenal graphics from us. And we had to make sure we could do that. Unfortunately, I think there's some taint to the genre. I think it's not dead, in fact I think there's a big opportunity in this genre for someone to come out with something that blows everybody away and makes them realize that, in fact, there is a large group of people who like this kind of thing. With Myst we sold... what was it... 8 million copies or something. Those people like wandering around in a world involving puzzles and not dying. So somewhere out there is a big audience of people who'd enjoy that if you get the right combination of people again." You can now read the full Gamasutra feature on the subject, including more about the seminal Myst franchise from its co-creator (no registration required, please feel free to link to this feature from external websites)
