New Screenshots, Captions Offer Clues About Myst Online: Uru Live
Our newest batch of screens was sent to us by GameTap and Cyan Productions, makers of the sociable first-person puzzler MMO Myst Online: Uru Live. This comes with some interesting info for those not tracking Myst Online's development. In possibly the most creative business model choice to-date, GameTap aims to offer subscriptions to Myst Online to its US GameTap subscribers. Gamers get access to all the games and media GameTap has to offer for the price of admission to Myst Online, or vice versa. MO:UL also has a free, scaled back "Visitor" option too.
"Today, GameTap has posted a new batch of screen shots for the upcoming "Myst Online: Uru Live," an innovative intrigue-driven massively multiplayer online game that launches in December 2006.
Selling more than 12 million units, "Myst" was the top-selling video game franchise of its day and is credited with creating the first-person adventure-puzzle genre. Looking to continue this tradition of excellence, GameTap has tapped Cyan Worlds to produce this online version of the game that will be available exclusively on GameTap. For $9.95 a month, subscribers get unlimited access to "Myst Online: Uru Live," plus more than 700 other games and 600+ TV shows/videos on the web. "
