Open Source Uru Live

The Myst Online Website reports a new twist in efforts at breathing new life into Uru Live, the MMO Myst game that's failed a couple of times now. In July it was announced that Cyan was regaining control of the property, saying they were working on a relaunch they called MORE Urulive, which would allow fans to create their own content. Now due to funding issues, they are going a step further, as they will be releasing the source code for the servers, client, and tools for MystOnline as an open source project. Word is: "We will also host a data server with the data for MystOnline. MORE is still possible but only with the help from fans. This is a bit scary for Cyan because this is an area that we have never gone before, to let a product freely roam in the wild. But we've poured so much into UruLive, and it has touched so many, that we could not just let it whither and die. We still have hopes that someday we will be able to provide new content for UruLive and/or work on the next UruLive." Thanks Ant and Slashdot.
