New discovery in Pokemon HeartGold & SoulSilver shows that players can't get stuck in Cianwood City


Pokemon HeartGold & SoulSilver launched over a decade ago, yet fans are still discovering fun bits of information in the game. A user by the name of Alucard the Hedgehog discovered that there is an NPC in Cianwood City that can give the player a Tentacool in case the player ever gets stuck.

For context, Cianwood City is a location in the game that is necessary to visit, but it can only be visited once a player gains the ability to use Surf. If a player were to travel to the city and then release any Pokemon that could learn the move, the player could theoretically be stuck on the island with no way to progress. Alucard the Hedgehog was determined to softlock his game and get stuck on the island, and in the process, he discovered that an NPC will appear if certain conditions are met. Therefore, players can NOT actually get stuck on the island.

Myst Documentary Kickstarter now live

A Myst opportunity

In 1993, brothers Rand and Robyn Miller, living in a double-wide trailer on the edge of a forest outside Spokane, Washington -- a.k.a., the middle of nowhere -- changed the home computer industry forever with the launch of MYST, a single-perspective exploration game that had no score, no violence and no set goal other than satisfying pure curiosity. In a world of flashy, shoot-‘em-up, beat-the-clock video game challenges, MYST quietly became the best-selling game of the 1990s.

As we said yesterday, the Kickstarter is looking for $200k to bring this documentary to life. You can get more details on the campaign and throw in some funding here.

Myst Documentary Kickstarter launches tomorrow, looking for $200k in funding

Myst me?

Myst was a gaming phenomena when it launched in 1993. Now a Kickstarter project hoping to crowdfund a documentary about the point-and-click adventure game that helped to popularize the CD-ROM, pre-rendered backgrounds, and more.

Myst was one of the biggest game industry successes back in the day, reaching gamers and non-gamers alike. The creation of two brothers who set up shop in a garage, Myst absolutely took over the world. Now a new documentary is in the works, but the team behind it needs $200k to make it happen. The official Kickstarter to bring in that funding starts tomorrow, and we'll make sure to link you to it when it's live.
