Cyan Worlds has signed a deal with TV show maker Legendary to develop the Myst video game into a TV series.
…Cyan is teaming with Legendary Television & Digital Media (giving them an option to make the TV series) because it believes that it is now possible to express the Myst world in a visual linear medium, said Blake Lewin, vice president of business development at Cyan.
Legendary also has a record of building amazing entertainment that reaches a larger audience, and it is possible to link the TV show to new kinds of transmedia.
“Cyan’s goal in working with Legendary is not just to create a compelling TV drama, but to develop a true transmedia product that will include a companion video game that extends the story across both media,” Lewin said. “With 70 percent of tablet owners use their device while watching TV, Cyan sees the potential to push the boundaries of interactive storytelling to a new level.”
