Cyan Steps Up Visitor Drive, Retools MO:UL Site

Players may now use downloadable banners to advertise MO:UL on other forums and websites. Cyanist Blake visited the Cavern for a brief chat on how he has been trying to increase exposure and draw players back to visit the game. Other ideas like T-shirt designs and ARGs or alternate-reality games like the Zandimobile in the offline Uru expansion packs were good ideas to Blake, but Cyan and GameTap were too busy to do them. Blake hinted that more involvement from players to build such attractions may be needed.

Blake also announced that Cyan is managing the MO:UL website instead of GameTap to facilitate more frequent updates, and that visitors may now download more easily the MO:UL demo outside of GameTap directly from the MO:UL website. The address is www.mystonline.com/demo.html.

Cyan Reschedules Season One Finale, Working on Season Two

In a brief announcement on the MO:UL forum today, Ryan “greydragon” Warzecha apologized for the recent silence on the release of “Exodus,” the Season One Finale, whose released was moved to November 1, 2007. “We needed to start the episode at this later date in order to fix some bugs that were found during rehearsal testing,” he explained.
