Cyan Becomes Cyan Worlds
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Cyan, the small Spokane, WA-based company which created legendary titles such as Myst and Riven is now kown as Cyan Worlds. The name change also heralds the creation of a new web site, with revamped sections on game info, jobs, and company contacts. The switch to Cyan Worlds also signifies a change in focus, as the following clip from the new site explains:

And now the journey continues. The next step is both obvious and striking. An entirely new mediumóbroadband Internetóis once again waiting to be defined, beckoning for content. Cyan has redefined itself as Cyan Worlds, and has been growing, building, and expanding to create one final new world... a world unlike anything previously possible... a world that will never end.
This seems to refer to their highly-secretive project, codenamed Mudpie. While not much is known about this upcoming title, it is assumed Mudpie will be some sort of online game, since the platform is listed as simply "broadband." The one screen shot of Mudpie is quite impressive though, so we're sure it is going to be unlike most persistent online games today. Supposedly the game is so ambitious that they are literally waiting for home hardware and Internet connection technology to improve before releasing it, as the audience of broadband customers and those with ultra-powerful gaming systems out there is sill relatively small.

There are a number of job openings available, if you happen to be looking for work. If you're hoping for something more immediate from the Cyan world, you can look forward to seeing realMYST and Myst III: Exile to both be released soon for the Mac OS.
