|Gametap/Uru Live Update

Over 10,000 years ago, the D’ni civilization established an underground empire on Earth. The D’ni people developed "The Art of Writing" which allowed them to create "Linking Books" which would allow them to travel to incredible worlds called "Ages."
The D’ni thrived for thousands of years, but suddenly met a great catastrophe that all but destroyed their civilization. Their underground lair was left uninhabited and their Linking Books and Ages were lost - until now.
A group of explorers recently discovered the remnants of the D’ni civilization and have begun restoring the cavern in the hopes of learning the secrets of the D’ni people. The D’ni Restoration Council (DRC) have recently invited you to join them in the cavern and assist with their efforts. Will you? Should you? The choice is yours.
For the first time, you are the storyteller. What happens is up to you.
Always changing and ever growing, Myst Online: Uru Live evolves every day. The game and storyline expands and adapts on a continual basis as players make choices and act and react, creating new experiences for one and all. Explore all the Ages of Uru Live and help forge an entirely new Myst story: yours.
Join in the next evolution of one of the most critically-acclaimed and best-selling video game franchises of all time. Intriguing puzzles, breathtaking worlds, and new friends await you. What story will you tell?
Update from the website:
The Myst Online: Uru Live beta program is going great and now it's time to really get things started. This week, we added some new elements to this site including a new game trailer, a "making of" video, and some other fun stuff. But more importantly, we can finally announce the December 20th launch of a live "preview" story inside the Myst Online: Uru Live beta. If you have a GameTap account, you are invited to play this new and improved version of the beta game inside GameTap for a special sneak preview of Myst Online. Please not that as this is still a "beta" version of the game, it is not yet complete and includes some known issues that still need to be addressed.
If you'd like to join GameTap and help us test our first "live story" by participating in the Myst Online beta, we're currently offering a special offer of only 99 cents for your first month of service.* Just click here to sign up.
*$9.95 after the first month. Credit card required. Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only.

We’re currently in the final phase of the Myst Online: Uru Live beta and are quickly heading toward the official game launch in early 2007. As part of the final development phase, we’re searching for more international players to help us test both the standalone Myst Online client and all elements of the game, including its live story. If you are an explorer in Australia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, or the United Kingdom and are not currently participating in the Myst Online: Uru Live Preview.
You can find the sign up via this link.
