A remake to the puzzle adventure title, Myst, has been announced for the XBox Series X/S, XBox One, and PC.
A remake for the title first released back in 2020 and was made into a VR title for the Oculus Quest. The game has now been made to suit ”flatscreen” monitors and it will be releasing on the XBox Game Pass, Cloud, and PC
The original Myst title was first released back in 1993 on the Mac OS, it featured many puzzles and first-person gameplay.
Myst was the original entry into the much loved puzzle series, which eventually managed to span over 6 titles. A lot of the games even included live action gameplay, which featured many different stars playing the various different characters. Some of these stars even included Rand Miller (co-founder of Cyan Worlds) and Brad Dourif (Child’s Play)
Welcome to Myst: a starkly beautiful island, eerily tinged with mystery and shrouded in intrigue.
Journey to Myst Island and other stunning, long dormant locations – called “Ages”- and begin to unravel the mystery you have been thrust into. As you learn what happened on the island, you will find that you are playing a key role in an epic story whose ending has not yet been written. Explore deeper connections in these stunning and surreal Ages, uncover a story of ruthless family betrayal, and make choices that will affect both you, and the world of Myst itself.
Cyan, the indie studio that created the beloved classic, has reimagined Myst.
Built from the ground up to play both in VR as well as traditional flatscreen displays, Myst is teeming with new art, new sound, re-imagined interactions, and even optional puzzle randomization. Finally… the highly anticipated Myst 2D/VR experience has arrived!
Now you can explore the Ages of Myst in a new dimension!
As a young kid growing up, we personally loved the Myst series and even today it holds a place in our hearts.. We cannot wait to get our mitts on this one.
If you enjoy these types of games and haven’t already done so, then we highly recommend checking out their currently in development title Firmament
