Uru is returning.

Uru was an entry in the Myst franchise that sought to go beyond the original franchise while remaining rooted in the type of worlds originally created by Rand Miller and Cyan. It was suppposed to be an interactive online game, but it fizzled. The software version of the game, actually three volumes of it, which I bought enthusiastically and played with decreasing enthusiasm, was a big let down. It felt like the story went nowhere, and the endgame involved jumping your avatar off a cliff. That's it.

But despite that experience, I'm interested in this reappearance of Uru Live. Throughout the software version of the game, there were places and items and puzzles that would have been much, much more interesting with other people around.

So, maybe...
