Could you imagine if worlds could be built minecraft-style from the community? Or programmed from the ground up like an addon? And we were allowed to enter these worlds through book/portals from some main world with a safety linking-book book in tow?

Over time, good authors/programmers would gain a reputation, create more amazing worlds and contribute more great content; just like a burgeoning D'ni society would! When I was going through computer science classes (waaaay back when), I imagined writing code was much like the world building in the MYST games and books. It would be amazing if this open source concept could not only make this a reality for the creative ones, but also provide an explorer's dream for everyone who just wishes to consume the content rather than create it.

If Cyan can pull this off, more power to them.

Some company actually did want to do this waaaay back a million years ago, can't remember the name. It all went to vapor unfortunately.

@(Unverified) That is what I'm hoping for, be able to make new worlds and pass them around as books in game. Overall the game is great as it is, needs more content obviously but its pretty, the atmosphere is creepy and interesting at the same time, and it really pulls you into the story.
If more people would play it, it would me 100x better than it is as its more fun to explore with friends.
Ive solved all but 4 worlds but doing it alone got boring. and some worlds require you to have more than one person.
I hope someone integrates it with the main game so explorers like me can have fun as well.
