Myst Creator Looking For VC Cash For Mudpie

from the different-ways-to-do-things dept

The guy who created the game Myst is now working on some huge new project, code-named Mudpie and he’s looking for venture capital money to finance it. That’s somewhat odd, because rarely do games get venture capital backing. Then again, no one would consider any of the Myst games conventional either. This game is completely separate from Myst, but still involves the same “Myst world” that the other games occupy. However, this will be an online multi-player game requiring a high bandwidth connection. There’s a slightly arrogant statement saying that Mudpie will drive broadband adoption just like Myst drove CD-ROM adoption.
