What did it look like when Cyan just started working on its original games?

Now that Cyan Worlds has exceeded its $1.1 million Kickstarter campaign (now at $1.24 million) for its next big game, we felt the urge to find out how Rand Miller, Robyn Miller and their team managed to keep the company together.

More than three times in the past 10 years, the little Mead game development firm seemed to have struck out, losing support as it kept trying to find a sequel to the big hit that Myst and Riven had been.

We found this Tribute Video to Cyan Worlds, uploaded by Matt Giuca.  He says, on YouTube, that he made the film in 2005. But the footage goes back years. Some of the best parts of the video are those early scenes of how Cyan got started and the enthusiastic look on the faces of those building the first game.

Matt, I hope you're still in touch with the Millers, so you can do one more video on the next chapter of the Cyan Saga.
