It's the living dead! Is this the beginning of the zombie apocalypse?
And it's free..... a free zombie apocalypse.

Or is it a zombie free apocalypse? I always get those too confused.


Seriously, it's good to see it come back to life.

Does the online game make as little sense as the offline game?

I have to say I'm impressed by this revival. Every time I went looking for it, the project was closed. Thanks for the heads up.

Uru Live is a mixed single player multi-player game. The intent was to be multi-player. Some puzzles such as the Deline (sp?) and Ahnonay are definitely multi-player to solve. Others are just easier to solve in group play.

The initial 5 ages/puzzles can be done single player.

The core fans are pretty good about not intruding on your solo experience. However, the GameTap version of the game is more MMO oriented than the original. Some feel that takes away from the story and understanding what is happening.

The active forum for fans is MystOnline.com. The planning group for the open source version is at OpenUru.org.

I managed to get my account created, but I'm guessing things are a bit busy on the downloads, too. The launcher does not seem to be able to connect at the moment.

Heh. As I was typing that, a message came up on the launcher that the servers are down temporarily due to the high demand. I'm looking forward to getting back in there and exploring again.

Shorah! what ever that means, I guess it's a big "Heil yeah!" in Myst terms.

I'm heading over there right after this post. Just wanted to say that there should be some other way to donate than paypal (i don't have paypal and am ot getting paypal) and "Shorah!" "Heil Yeah!"

Looks like there are other payment options and I'll be doing my part once I can get signed up.
