À propos de ce jeu

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition is a beautifully updated version of realMYST for today’s Mac and Windows computers - celebrating the 20th anniversary of Myst! The models and textures have been reconstructed to provide an amazing graphical experience. The environments have been enhanced to provide dynamic water, weather, lighting, foliage, focus, and more. The interface has been redesigned to provide an enjoyable way to explore for both novices and gamers.

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition - this is not your father's Myst! It’s been 20 years since Myst became your world, and there's never been a better time to revisit the Ages. This newly refreshed and rebuilt version of realMyst is all-things Myst, but amazingly more real. You can explore anywhere, unfettered, and in realtime! Pick your own path through the forest on Myst Island. Listen to the crickets as the sun sets in the Channelwood Age. Relax in the falling leaves in the Selenitic Age. Spin around for a full panoramic tour of Sirrus’ throne room. Seek shelter from the thunderstorm in Stoneship Age.

And If you’ve ever been overwhelmed by realtime 3D - too many controls or too much motion - realMyst has something for you! You have the option to play the game just like the original Myst - with a simple point and click! Point where you want to go - click the mouse and you move through the world seamlessly to the new location. As a tribute to Myst’s 20th anniversary we’ve also added the original Myst images when you play in this Classic mode. Hold down the shift key and the original Myst image pops up, so you can see the difference and fondly remember that early Myst experience.

We’ve added plenty of new features to enhance and assist you on your journey. So whether you’re visiting Myst for the first time or you want to remember the first time - there’s never been a better reason to lose yourself and let the surrealistic Ages of realMyst become your world.

Really great remake of Myst! Well, a remake of a remake...
If you're confused about the differences between the different versions of Myst on steam, then get this one!

This if the only version with Achievements AND Trading Cards!
Also, the Rime Age (only on Realmyst and Realmyst Masterwork) is kinda neat!

WARNING! WARNING! I have no idea why, but this game... either wipes its individual achievements occasionally, or they pinged in-game but not on Steam itself for some weird reason... I had to redo my achievements up to the end of Channelwood (first age I explored).
Also, the Perfect ATU achievement was weird, and didn't ping in-game for me, but when I alt-tabbed to Steam, it showed up. Also, somehow fell into the water in Stoneship Age somehow and it respawned me at the beginning of the age.

All in all, a few glitches, but nothing too gamebreaking, and pretty easy to 100%.

Definitely get this if you want another game for trading cards and more 100% games achievement-wise.

NOTE: I say this game is easy, but I remember all the puzzles from doing it as a kid... most people will probably want to consult a strategy guide or a walkthrough unless they want to toggle the same few switches on the first island for a few hours, wondering what in the world they have to do... This game is not very self-explanatory puzzle-wise.

Well redesigned, the freedom of movement is fun because of all the faster paths you can take, and the secrets are very neat. Spoiler alert: The mythbusters reference is XD level of funny!

I started playing this series in 1997 when Riven came out. That game was very challenging in those days but I eventually beat it. I always wanted to play Myst because Riven didn't make much sense because I never knew any backstory.

I eventually borrowed a friend's copy of Myst in 2002 or so and played it and loved it. I researched into the series and found out there was a 3D remake of Myst called realMyst. I found a copy of it at Staples (lol) and played the crap out of it. Even though it was fun, you could tell there were issues with the controls and the game had many glitches.

But this right here? THIS is what Cyan should have made when the timing was right. I LOVE that you can play with the old point and click controls, because I was very fond of those controls in the past. I just finished this for the first time and did it pretty quick because I remembered all of the puzzle solutions, but it was still just as fun as I remembered.

I highly recommend this to fans of adventure games with a good story and good puzzles. The "book" cutscenes haven't aged well, but I can see why they kept MOST of the original videos. Recasting wouldn't make much sense, but that's just a small complaint.

Here's hoping Steam eventually gets Myst III and Myst IV.

#realMyst: Masterpiece Edition

Myst seems to be the ultimate "Figure It Out Yourself: The Game". From the very first questions of "What is this place?" and "What do I even have to do?" until the very-very realMyst end.

It's a 1st-person point-n-click game with a lot of journals to read and a lot of puzzles to solve. There's no hand-holding whatsoever – and I loved it! (mostly …) None of the puzzles are impossible or unfair. All you need is your mind and a sense for discovery: there are enough in-game hints, and much can be solved with pure logic. However, even though most often you need to THINK, there are also times when you need to PLAY AROUND – and there's no telling of when to do what.

Mastering these riddles completely on your own in a time full of flashing arrows, quest markers, YouTube Let's Plays and online databases makes the experience feel so much more rewarding. They are ~2o year old puzzles, after all! You really do feel smart solving them without any walkthrough.

Unfortunately I must admit that I did use a walkthrough – and let this be noted as a big dissatisfaction – namely after already having reached the end of the game! That's right: I solved the very last puzzle and didn't even realize it; I had to learn that from a walkthrough. As nice of a fanservice adding a new Age to the remake may have been, without a proper ending it felt very unfinished.

Aside from that, the now seamless spatial movement – the original used still images – is greatly appreciated. Greatly!

When I first got a computer... (A 486DX2 @ 50Mhz) This was the first PC game I ever played. The atmosphere and the environment made me insanely addicted to this game. This HD remaster brought back great memories as well as frustrations as after all these years I had forgotten the puzzle solutions. It's a great game to get you using your head and I am glad to see that it has stood the test of time and gained a new audience.

Oh boy, oh boy do I recommend this game? Yes! Myst is an amazing game that broke barriers in 1993 when it was first released. I love that they have remastered the game and it feels like a masterpiece and really is. Just get the game. But if you comeback saying SuperCat, I dont understand the story, the characters or the puzzles, what do I do? Then I say to you Myst is all about looking closer. Finding the story with in the game. I say that because you can play the entire game with out noticing the story! And that will show you that the game is more shrouded in mist and mYstery than you thought before.

I'm so punny.

Note: I've never played the original Myst.
Also it is to my understanding that this was intended to be as identical to the original, complete with dated movement and camera controls (which I used in contrast to free movement WASD). Personally I found the free camera to be unwieldy and nauseating.

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition is an enjoyable game that really attempted to mimic the original in everything down to the puzzles. The puzzles were fairly difficult, and if you missed any clue, you were dead in the water. I found that the game didn't hand hold, and you couldn't really tell which object was interactable. The story was minimal, but the embedded videos were an interesting addition and the acting was portrayed in very different, but positive, way.

Graphics-wise, the atmospheric effects were a nice touche as was the day/night cycle. However for a 2014 game, the 3D models were very dry and plain in some levels.

9/10.

Ce jeu s’adresse à mon avis aux anciens joueurs du Myst original qui veulent une version ‘remasterisée’. Pour les autres, et bien, c’est une mécanique de jeu incompréhensible, des touches non configurables réglées en dur pour clavier QWERTY, une optimisation insuffisante. Bref, une grosse déception.

Myst is pretty much the definition of a classic point-and-click game, and to an extent not much really needs to be said about it. It's the sort of game that just drops you into a strange new world without any explanation, and lets you figure out how its various mechanisms work on your own. This version is an enhanced version of the original realMyst, which itself was a 3D remake of the original Myst, allowing you to walk around like a standard first-person game instead of being locked into the usual 360 swivel-cam. The Masterpiece edition greatly improves the graphics, but at the expense of having pretty strange performance; despite my GTX 970 and overclocked i5, I barely managed 30 fps when the preset was set to Very High, but when setting the preset to Medium High (turning it to anything lower than that decreases the mouse speed, for some reason) and turning on all of the settings in the Advanced options it ran at around 70 to 100+ depending on the area. The ability to move freely increases immersion, but also makes the puzzles a bit more difficult in my opinion by making it less obvious what you can and can't interact with, which is further increased by the better graphics of this version, but I consider that to be more of a plus. realMyst might not be the version of the game that the original developer prefers, but it's the one I'd rather play.

I love the Myst world(s).
I can not give enough praise to this game.

Disclaimer: I had never played any Myst game before playing this one. So nostalgia isn't a factor here. With that being said, this game is incredible. It is so beautiful in its setting, visuals, and soundtrack. The premise is intriguing, the exploration is marvelous with stunning environments. It can be annoying that the player can only hold one page at a time though.

Regarding performance, it actually does run better if you first set it to minimum settings and then to maximum or whatever it is you want to run. It is indeed poorly optimized, but it makes you forget that quickly.

Avis & Rappel :
v. 0 -
C'est quoi Myst ? Myst c'est tout simplement un jeu d'énigmes et d'observations, mais pas seulement. Développé à l'origine par 2 frères, ces derniers peuvent se vanter d'être les pères de ce qui est resté dans la mémoire collective comme le Point'n Click - Rien que ça. De plus Myst était un jeu qui en son temps existait sous Mac et sous PC en même temps et avant d'être détrôné par les Sims de Maxis, il détenait le record du jeu vidéo le plus vendu au monde. Par ailleurs, la série Myst a su résister au temps puisque le 5e et dernier épisode est paru en 2005, alors que le 1er Myst date de 1993 !
d'ailleurs un kickstarter fructueux proposera bientôt quelque chose qui s'approche d'un fils spirituel pour la saga Myst. (auquel participeront Ryan et Robin Miller, les 2 frères mentionnés plus haut)
C'est le projet “Obduction
Myst c'est avant tout une difficulté relevée*, il faut être patient, intuitif, observateur. Myst vous bombarde de mécanismes et d'appareils en panne, ils s'offrent tous à vous en même temps, mais même si la segmentation des puzzles est perceptible, ils servent tous un même objectif, ils sont complémentaires pour un dessin encore plus grand et plus complexe.

Myst c'est aussi l'un des tout premiers jeux pour lequel des romans ont été écrits, par les développeurs eux-mêmes d'ailleurs (les premières éditions des 3 tomes s'arrachent à prix d'or). Si je parle de livres, c'est aussi parce que Myst vous donne à lire, il y a des livres, contenant des réponses, du background ...

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition est sans doute l'édition à posséder, la plus complète, la plus jouable. Le principe c'est de cliquer dans une direction et le point de vue le plus proche de cet endroit devient votre nouvelle localisation. Une fois positionné, certaines rotations précises sont possibles, mais globalement la caméra est fixe sur l'énigme ou le chemin qui y est lié. Pour les énigmes, c'est la même idée : des leviers, des interrupteurs, touchez pour actionner, c'est ça le Point'n Click original.

Côté histoire c'est simple, dans cet univers il est possible de rédiger des livres, une fois écrits, ces livres deviennent des mondes à part entière, il suffit de les toucher pour s'y rendre, mais une fois à l'intérieur du monde les choses sont délabrées, cassées (par la faute du temps ou de quelqu'un). C'est vous qui réparez et ce faisant, découvrez d'autres livres ou bien vous vous ménagez la sortie vers le monde en cour.

Cette édition est la bonne, succès, options, possibilité de jouer comme dans le temps, 0 bidouillage pour pouvoir la faire marcher. Vous voulez voir l'un des jeux PC les plus anciens et comprendre ce qui est à l'origine du Point'n Click ? Alors realMyst: Masterpiece Edition devrait s'imposer à vous comme une évidence.

*Riven (la suite) est réputé comme l'un des jeux les plus complexes existant, en tout cas plus que cet épisode.
À l'heure où j'écris le jeu attend son tout dernier patch pour être complet (il est possible d'y accéder en Beta avec le code suivant : Let1Me2Try3It

Je vais faire super court.

Si vous avez déjà Myst (ou l'avez déjà fini) laissez tomber, achat inutile, à moins d'être super fan.

Si vous ne connaissez pas, c'est la bonne version pour découvrir, mais attention, le genre a quand même beaucoup vieillit...
Surtout celui-ci, très frustrant : on galère beaucoup au début à comprendre la logique d'ensemble, et une fois qu'on a saisit, c'est l'autoroute jusqu'à la fin.
Cependant, il s'agit d'un classique qui doit avoir été joué au moins une fois.

Cette version remplace avantageusement la vieille 3D précalculée par une vraie 3D bien propre, permettant par la même de se balader dans le jeu à la façon d'un FPS. Et c'est à peu près tout... A vous de voir.
Au moins ca tourne sans problème sur une machine récente.

This is a wonderful game. This was my first game I ever owned back when I was a child, so I have a nostalgic bias. To the review; this game from the get-go is aesthetically 200% better. It looks like any indie FPS you can buy nowadays minus a tutorial and immediate plot. I put countless hours into this game as a child and never beat it. That was back before there was internet walkthroughs and developers who thought that you (the gamer) barely passed the second grade. I recommend this game to anyone who wants an relaxing, in-depth story told to them through puzzles, journal entries, and a non-hostile environment.

Good things to say about this game:
-Beautiful
-Flashlight feature is helpful
-Easy conversion from classic point-'n'-click to real-time first person.
-Story remains intact if not more immerse
-More brainpower and problem-solving required than any game on the modern market

Bad things to say about this game:
-Suffers from massive framerate drops in real time first person. I drop from 60+ FPS to around 15-20 frequently; it's not a hardware issue either, it's a frame cap.
-First person controls are different and take some getting use to (Letting off WASD brings up a cursor)
-Not a casual adventure game; requires hours upon hours to reveal the entire story, get through each puzzle (if you're new to the game), and navigate each area.

This is a time-consuming masterpiece. Mozart is to the Classical genre of music, as Myst is to Adventure games. Very few games deserve such artistic praise, this ranks number 1 on my list.

As I've read the other reviews of this game, I've noticed that this is a "nostalgia game" for most people. I, however, have just played it for the first time (RealMyst Masterpiece, not the original). It has a lot of good points, but I gotta tell ya, there were some major gameplay issues that had me tearing my hair out at times. I'm sure some of that comes from trying to optimize an old game for new systems, but I was hoping for better. Still, I really enjoyed it and I'm glad I played it.

GOOD POINTS (as determined by a newbie to the series):
- Like everyone else has said, it's visually beautiful and imaginative.
- Soundtrack is lovely and very atmospheric.
- It was nice to know through the in-game "Hints" menu (which, yes, I had to check, for reasons described below) that this was a non-hostile environment! No waiting for something evil to jump out at me from the shadows, even though there are a few ominous things to see/hear. But nothing explicit - still family-friendly, I would say.
- The puzzles are truly creative, and that kept me interested. Every Age has a specific "theme" or "conceit" for how its puzzles work, but knowing the "theme" don't make 'em easy! As someone who grew up playing online Flash room escape games (and some point-and-click adventure games like The Neverhood), I was really impressed with the varied methods you had to use to solve them. Pro tip: don't try playing with the sound off. Ask me how I found that out. (Plus you'll miss the music and audio messages!)
- The story (which is why I play games) was tantalizing and left me wanting more.
- Having 2 options for navigation controls was handy.
- The day/night cycles for each age were cool and added to the immersive aspect.
- The flashlight was a HUGE help! I mean, you could probably get by without it, but I found it indispensable. I hate not knowing if I'm missing something because I'm in a dark area!
- The live acting wasn't half bad.
- Unfortunately, after finishing it, there isn't really anything "to do" in the different Ages, but I liked that you're able to go back and explore more if you want.

THINGS I DISLIKED:
- Oh. My. Gosh. The "clicking" mechanics absolutely drove me UP THE WALL! I usually had to click on a certain supposed-to-be-clickable area in 20 different places before it would work. And the "sweet spots," when I finally found them, were inconsistent.
- The other "clicking" problem was that I frequently would stop being able to click on anything all of a sudden. I'd try to click a button that I'd pressed a hundred times and nothing would happen, and then I'd discover I couldn't click anything else either (though the game didn't freeze). I usually had to reload a save, which was frustrating, although on rare occasions the problem went away after I visited the game menu and waited a few minutes. Still, VERY exasperating. I was never able to tell, the first time I tried to click on a new object, if it was truly clickable or if I was having another glitch. I had to resort to the Hints frequently just because of that.
- Sometimes I would get "stuck" navigationally: I wouldn't be able to leave/move away from a particular position or vantage point, though there was nothing obstructing me. Sometimes I could fix it by reloading, but sometimes I had to work my way back from an earlier save :/ I particularly had this problem while facing the battery in the Stoneship Age and while facing the ceiling above the elevator in the Mechanical Age.
- The game did crash on me - once, I think.
- There are certain times when you're supposed to be able to hear an audio message, but the music never muted or decreased its volume, so I could rarely hear what was said. I had to look up the transcripts online. Subtitles would've been a huge help.
- I had an issue with the red/blue pages where I could collect them both in each Age, but could only give away the one that I had collected last. This meant that I didn't get to hear some of the audio messages from the brothers.
- You kind of have to do the Selenitic Age first, though the game doesn't require you to (and I didn't). Certain puzzles in other Ages are extremely hard to beat without having been introduced to a particular puzzle from the Selenitic.
- Having only five available save-game slots was annoying to someone who's used to infinite saves :D Also, some of the saves actually took me back a little ways before where the save-point actually was - I couldn't really save while a puzzle was in progress.

In short, it's a great game, and it's fun to get to experience the great-granddaddy of all the point-and-click games I grew up with. That said, you definitely need to approach it with the knowledge that it's still an old game, despite its remastering. It has plenty of major bugs, but it's still good. I liked it enough that if they remade Riven and etc. I'd probably play them.

I played Myst as a kid, like what, 15-20 years ago? I would just walk around and click things, and I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Today, I still have no idea what I'm doing. Love it.

A beautiful recreation of a timeless classic, realMyst: Masterpiece Edition brings a piece of gaming history to modern times. While the graphics and sounds are completely revamped to match modern-day standards, the gameplay stays true to its original and does not fail to deliver the nostalgic Myst-feeling.

It is, admittingly, a rather peculiar game, a slow paced and thoughtful puzzler in a surrealistic setting. Its puzzles can be overwhelming at times, especially for those unfamiliar with the genre, but they always have a logical (sometimes surprisingly straightforward) solution that makes you feel really smart if you solve them on your own. But even for those non-hardcore adventure gamers among you, the game offers a built in (optional) hint system that gives you little advices without spoiling too much.

There are only few negative points that should be mentioned; The controls and movement feel a bit wonky at times and you might occasionally get stuck on objects on the ground (nothing game-breaking though), however Cyan is working on a fix for that at the point of this review. The in-game cinematics still have the low resolution from previous renditions of Myst, which seems a bit out of place considering the otherwise beautiful graphics. And the missing inventory (you can only pick up and carry one item at a time) is a rather annoying remnant from the original Myst game, often requiring an unnecessary amount of backtracking.

In summary, realMyst: Masterpiece Edition is a game that wants you to immerse yourself, absorb the scenery and use your logical thinking. If you are a fan of the Myst series to begin with, this is almost a must-have, but any other adventure fan might take a look at this as well, to get a chance to enjoy a game that wrote history in a new and stunning visual design.

Pretty true to the classic Myst as best as I can remember, though it has been long enough I had to resolve much of the puzzles. The 3D work in the 'common' areas is really nice, but in other areas it feels very crude. For example the ending of the maze, you can see the textures tiling as you go by. Same on the fortress. They also did not remake the videos, especially the 'bad' endings.

A bit choppy on max settings with a very strong gaming machine. Definitely not warranted for the quality being rendered, but it didn't really affect the gameplay. Effects that seem to be from the engine (ie. water/lava) look really good.

I played it through and only had a single crash while alt tabbing to check e-mail.

The 3D controls were pretty good, if a bit awkward at first. Going up and down a spiral staircase in a certain realm was actually rather odd. Moving around in 3D does, imho, make the game easier as things are much easier to find and figure out than in the traditional navigation.

I also found a typo in one of the journals. The journals are worth reading, as a kid playing the game I didn't really read for the story, just the clues and missed the whole plot and meaning of the red/blue books.

The 'final' realm is also a bit dependent on your audible skills. I am a bit tone deaf, which made that realm a challenge. *You definitely need sound to finish that portion of the game.*

Overall, having had played the original Myst many years (decades?) ago, this was an enjoyable second play through.

My Dad introduced me to this game when I asked him what games he used to play. We got Myst so I could experience it the way he did but it crashed whenever we solved the clock tower puzzle to get to the Mechanical Age, so we got this. We have completed all but the Channelwood Age and I have to say, I'm really impressed with it. It's not the most well optimized game, but it runs fine most of the time. (Seriously, it looks good not amazing. I can run Shadow of Mordor on high and this lags. What?) I still can't it was done by 2 guys. The atmosphere is surreal and the music, oh my god, the music. The puzzles are really clever and most of them are difficult, but solveable. (I say most. I'm looking at you Spaceship Piano). The answers are usually in plain sight, you just have to explore and have the thinking capacity to connect two seemingly unrelated things. I also like how each age has a 'theme'. The flashlight was a godsend, as you may as well be blind during the night. You can't see ANYTHING at night time, so that helped a lot. Overall, a solid 8.5/10.

RealMyst was a great step forward in rendering the world of Myst, using an early version of the engine later put to work in Uru and Myst 5. It was rough around the edges, the view distance was a little short, but it maintained Myst's atmosphere, and gave you the bonus of being fully present in the world.

RealMyst Masterpiece is not that. This is a port to the Unity engine, along with all the baggage of modern graphical realism. Bloom, motion blur, specular textures, all the things that make games look "real", utterly fail in this edition. The architecture of Myst no longer has that surreal appeal in the original slideshow or Plasma engine versions, but rather a horrible out of place look. There are points in RealMyst Masterpiece where iconic structures look like the worst examples of bad-CGI-inserted-into-live-action-film you can imagine. Gone is the sense that this is a real place you can let your brain fill in the blanks for; instead Unity brings all the trappings of photorealism, and ruins the look entirely. The remaining prerendered videos (the red/blue/green books, Atrus) are the same as they were in RealMyst, and their encoding artifacts stick out even more under Unity's shiny patina.

Pick up the original RealMyst, it still works fine on modern OSes. Support Cyan by purchasing Myst, or Riven, or Uru, or donate to Myst Online, or throw your hat in for Obduction. But don't let them feel this slapdash engine port was a good idea.

Vanilla Myst had two major issues, and with this game one of them has been fixed.
The first issue is the nature of the puzzles themselves. Although they are deliciously challenging at times, there is quite a bit of 'find solution, write down solution, walk across map, apply solution'. This will never be fixed, but it certainly doesn't make the game anything less than spectacular.

The other issue, and by far the most severe issue, was how old the damn game was. Assuming you could even get it to start, you had to find a legacy version of Quicktime and were playing the game in 320x240 which some monitors don't even support anymore. A side effect of it's age was the graphics quality being garbage. Usually I can overlook graphics in a well-crafted game, but when a game relies so heavily on immersion and observation, and is prerendered with zero fluidity of movement, having visuals as poor as Myst's simply detracts from the overall experience.

It is for these two reasons that I had trouble getting people into the Myst series. Riven, which is quite possibly the greatest game of all time, relies on players having experienced Myst's universe and story. So you were left with two choices: Wrestle Myst into submission and persuade yourself to beat it, where the only redeeming factor at this point is it's imperfect puzzles, or play the also-ugly and also-buggy realMyst.

With the release of realMyst Masterpiece, I can finally say that Myst is fixed. While the graphics aren't quite perfect, and there are still a few cosmetic bugs, and the puzzles are the same puzzles as ever, I feel like this game actually deserves to be Riven's prequel.

In short, there is no longer any reason why you should not play through realMyst Masterpiece and then play Riven.

This is a very good remake so far. It took all the good things from RealMyst and Myst and combined the two.

I love the fact that they added not only the classic movement mode, but that it actually moves for you, rather than flashing the screen and showing the next image like in the original. Very nice touch.

I never got into realMyst in order to see the additional content, so I'm glad that they made it worth exploring all over again in order to get to the new content.

The textures are also much, much better than in realMyst. I was almost expecting something similar with only some compatibility tweaks here and there.

Pleasantly surprised. Definitely worth picking up!
