I've been trying to stay away from Kickstarter! But this one intrigues me... NOW... if they would just do one for the Shivers games!

With a goal of $247,000 and $847,000 already pledged with 39 days yet to go, I'd say this one is pretty popular! Alas, it will be beyond them to rebuild the games for the Mac.

If they had Mac support for the package then I might well have gone for this, good there’s still the interest.

Yes, I was disappointed that the package is only for Windows, but then URU never was. I have all the other games anyway.

I've always thought of Myst as a William Wordsworth game. You know - "I've wandered lonely as a cloud......."

BTW, second you on Shivers.

They now say you’ll be able to get physical DVDs for the Mac as well as PCs.

After I found out about the Mac support, I decided to go whole hog and get the inkwell and linking book. I just couldn't resist. :bgb

They're also including (digital) copies of the novels now - but only in the higher tiers, which seems a bit odd. To get a couple of ebooks you have to be prepared to pay for the inkwell.

LadyKestrel you’ve gone one better than I did - I just went for the linking book! And I thought that was more than I should have done!
