We are Chuck Carter and Rand Miller, creators of the game Myst. We're releasing a new game tomorrow called ZED. Ask us anything!
Chuck Carter is now the Founder and Creative Director of Eagre Games, a small, independent game studio in Ellsworth, Maine. After working on Myst, Chuck went on to do special effects and art for Babylon5, Command & Conquer, National Geographic, NASA, and over 20 other games.
Rand Miller is the Founder/CEO of Cyan in Spokane, Washington, and recently founded Cyan Ventures as Cyan's new publishing arm, here to bring exciting new adventures to the masses. Cyan recently succeeded in Kickstarting their new Virtual Reality project Firmament.
ZED releases Tuesday, June 4th for PC/Oculus/Vive with a release for Mac and Linux shortly afterwards and can be found on Steam, GoG, Oculus Store, and Viveport.
Ask us anything about our careers in game development, our longevity in the industry, our lives outside games, or anything at all! Feel free to address questions to u/chuckmcarter and u/mysterm where applicable.
We'll begin answering your questions around 1PM EDT. Excited to see what you have to say!
EDIT: 3PM EDT: Rand has stepped out to lunch.
EDIT 2: Chuck here, Been at this for three hours now and I've got to take a break. I'm in Manchester, New Hampshire at our sister studio Skymap Games and we're getting prepared for our big launch of ZED tomorrow! Keep in touch with Eagre Games on our Twitter and Facebook to follow along and check out our Steam Page - wishlisting helps us gain traction on Steam too if you're so inclined :0) We'll be checking in over the coming days and doing our best to respond to each and every one of you. We had a great time hearing from all of you. Thanks for your great questions! ♥
