Myst-Riven-like game underway

Anything that isn't directly related to Age Creation but that might be interesting to Age developers.

I knew you would like it, Wam, or I even dared to believe that you'd very much love this one ... :D

Those crappy small jpg pictures really do not do justice to this high quality the developers of this masterpiece of art are providing us with ... Everything looks almost so real, esp. the plants, the fires and all of nature and all is so naturally animated and alive, and the water ripples and the rocks and everything is naturally glistening in the sun etc. etc. ... just wow ... :P

Uru (and Myst/Riven etc.) has its history, its story, its ancient magic and beauty and all of the energy we all put into it, but as of quality, what is being delivered nowadays, it is staggeringly breathtaking and just sheer awesomeness ... one really cannot compare this anymore ... :)

There are some more commands and keys nicely highlighted in my above post, hidden in spoiler tags btw, which are not mentioned in the game's readme file, for anyone who might be interested ... :geek:

Janaba - Your Keys and Commands Spoiler does not work

You also should mention the BEAUTIFUL Day / Night cycle and Rain / Thunderstorm cycle

and YES I Love it...


Unfortunetly there is no swimming - everything just fades out and you start over (in the current age)...

Ohh, you have to click on the 'Show Spoiler' link and not on Keys and Commands ... and you should really read all the spoilers, where I've mentioned everything like toggling day and night and creating rain and snow and everything nice, but without spoiling too much hehe ... just read my post, I just put everything in spoilers to not make it too long and for all who want to explore and find out everything by themselves ... :P

And of course you cannot swim lol, because that's another special which I've also mentioned above, which is the transport/teleport system ... It isn't intended for us to just swim over the pond as it seems ... I find it wonderful btw, when you're softly with a beautiful fade carried back ashore when trying to swim or when falling from somewhere etc. ... :)

Besides that, I'm glad that you like or even love it, Wam ... have lots of fun exploring ... :D

Ok, for all also having problems opening the spoiler, here it is again ... :geek:

Awesome!!! How wonderful to have those all in one place, thank you, Wam ... :P

And the developers, aren't those guys and the gal of course lol, wonderful ... and they're such a small team accomplishing this all, which proves again and again that not 'many' are needed ... Yeah, to look through those videos you get more acquainted with all that is available and possible in the game ... very nice and inspiring ... Thanks again ... :)

How wonderful ... yes, I'm looking forward to the final release too ... I haven't had the time to play through the whole demo yet though, but I found this 50 min. YouTube video, and it seems this man played it through ... Maybe we're lucky and have a little help to look into if needed ... :D

Nice!
Not about to spoil myself with the demo, but I just made a modest pledge towards Xing, as well as this one:
