Über dieses Spiel

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.

Unlike regular realMyst, this version actually works on modern machines. Noting this is the primary reason for my "review."

Overall, this version seems to be faithful to the original, quite attractive, and definitely worth it for anyone who has "the itch" but doesn't have any version besides the original. There's an inexplicable lack of rebindable hotkeys and the anti-aliasing isn't the best, but for the most part the rough edges contribute to the "old school" feel.

Fair warning, though: there are also a few dumb glitches, particularly with the "free roam" mode. None are show-stoppers, and they seem to be the sort of thing you need a certain number of unique testers to catch. For example, an elevator in the tree age reset after loading a save wherein I was on the second level of platforms. I was able to safely fall through the hole where the elevator should have been, and the game "snapped" me onto the platform without incident. More immersion-breaking than problematic.

So after playing this for a few minutes everything was great the island of Myst really does look real in a way that no prior version of Myst has matched. But the longer I played the more I looked back at the classic pictures (accessable in game via the shift key in classic mode) and it dawned on me that many locations especially the bottom level of channelwood look far worse then the original graphics. Primarily in the lighting and shadows. I was hoping this could be the version of Myst that I would repeatedly come back to and replace the unstable original Masterpiece edition as my favorite, and while this is a good version of Myst. The original Masterpiece Edition still is and will continue to be my favorite version.

There have been many versions of Myst over the years, but this is truly the best. Myst Island has never looked so beautiful before, full of more lush vegetation and gorgeous water. The heights on Channelwood, the eerie blasted landscape of Selenitic, are beautifully rendered in the new engine. I've spent time just walking around admiring the improvements in some of my favorite video game locations of all time.

The puzzles all have an internal logic, focused on you understand what the environment is telling you. The key to solving the puzzles of Myst is to remember that everything on the island and Ages were created and reshaped by people, and the traces of their presence they leave behind gives insights to their past actions, their outlook on the world, and what they might yet do. What someone displays in their room is important, as is what they conceal and how they do so. The story is meant to be uncovered via exploration and careful reading, of putting together what it means that a symbol from one Age is repeated in a more sinister context elsewhere. Only by this understanding can you make your decision about who to trust.

As a kid (we're talking around 5 or 6) I remember playing the original Myst for Windows 3.1/95 and being two things:

1. I was terrified that at any second I was going to be attacked by some unknown foe.

2. I was absolutely enthralled with how good the game was.

Now, I didn't beat the game until I was probably 9 or 10 because it was difficult at that age, but ever since then I've revisited it from time to time. I've played the original, Masterpiece Edition, and now realMyst: ME. I love that it now runs properly on Windows 8 and it fills my screen. As others have said I was surprised at how choppy the graphics are, but I'd say they've done a very good job updating the original graphics while still very much feeling like Myst. I wish they could have remastered the sound a bit better, as that alone was one of the best parts of Myst.

All in all, I'm happy I bought it, but then I've played every game in the series. If you weren't a huge fan of the original, then it's probably not for you, but if you somehow have never played Myst, this is a must-buy, as you can't call yourself a gamer if you've never played (and beaten it without guides!) Myst.

If you were a fan of the original or a new comer, the latest patches have made realMyst: Masterpiece Edition a gem to play again. One thing to note as of 6/14 the achievements still do not work from what I can tell. Developer Cyan has stated that they are still in testing and will update further whe they are ready for general public. The game has classic point and click controls as well as wasd/mouse first person controls. I personally used the classic controls and instead of shifting panes like it used to do many years ago, now you get a nice walking simulation to the next area of interest. This walk movement simulation can also be scaled faster or slower. In classic Myst fashion the game is extremely hard with puzzles that stretch across the environments. You have to use memory, sounds, and quickness to complete many puzzles in this fantastic setting. If you are looking for a new challenge or haven't visited the original myst since the 90's you will be in for a treat with some of the toughest puzzles in any adventure game.

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.

Myst: One of the greatest video games of all time. A captivating story, ellusive puzzles, and wondorous lands to explore. This brings Myst to a whole new level. The Day/Night cycle worked brilliantly, the Ages were made more glorious and gorgeous, and the flashlight and hint sections in the menu were terrific ideas.

This game is for recommended mature people. If you only find fun in games strictly of action, then this game may disappoint you, as it is more art than game. If you have a time, isolated in your room on a rainy night; it is a perfect time to play Myst.

It's good 'ol Myst remade on a fully 3D engine with better graphics. Not only that, but the remake also features modern WASD+Mouse control scheme (classic movement style is also available) and even nice little things like dynamic day & night cycle.

However, there's also the bad:

The remake suffers from very poor performance. I can run Battlefield 4 with consistent 60+ FPS on ultra settings, but realMyst:ME can barely hit that mark even on lowest and frequently suffers from random drops in framerate.
And I must say, while the game looks a thousand times better than the original Myst - it doesn't look good enough to justify such poor performance. Model and texture quality isn't great, and while in some cases it actually looks nice by replicating some of that nostalgic aesthetic the original Myst had - in other places the lack of detail is too obvious.

Add to that:
- Dynamic shadows are a nice addition but are of fairly low resolution and you can clearly see the jaggies.
- Obvious texture seams in many areas.
- Somewhat clunky and unintuitive "FPS" controls, which only enable mouselook while you're moving. If you're standing still - you can't look around with the mouse unless you hold right mouse button.
- Mouse cursor is not constrained to the game's window (even in fullscreen) which is annoying on multiple-monitors setup.
- There's very obvious model popping in some areas, where models switch between low-quality to high-quality versions (example: The interior of the library on the main island).

And that is just what I discovered in the first half an hour of playing the game, on the very first island and I fear there's more to come as I get further into the game.

-----------

I cannot recommend it until the developers at least sort out the performance problems.

Don't have a whole lot of time in it just yet but from the time spent I'd say that graphically the game is much better than the original. You feel immersed in the landscape and the different worlds more than ever, however they aren't really up to spec with modern day game graphics. Still, if you are into the casual point and click mystery/puzzle games then Myst is pretty much the grand-daddy of them all.

The controls for the 3D Roaming are a bit awkward at first especially if you've played it before. The good thing though is that there is a Point and Click option that mimics the original while still maintaining the updated graphics. I would give it a solid 80/100.

Sound is great. Music is great. Brings back fond memories.

Bottom line: for $12.05 or less (Summer Sale) the game is a must buy if you're into these types of games or if you just want to revisit your childhood days of playing the original Myst series.

Myst was my first computer game, ever. Played it on Windows 3.1. This is the only version of the game I've had no issues with running on modern PCs (Win 7). Both Myst:Masterpiece and realMyst Original had crashing or other issues. This one worked perfectly for me.

I highly recommend it to almost anyone, if only just to try it out; there are few games like it, it's an exploration, puzzle, story-driven game. Don't play it like an 'objective', just relax, explore, and be curious. Puzzles are clever, and the controls, while taking a bit of getting used to, offer both a WASD and 'Classic' mode. The hint system is very nice as well, offering just that: hints. Not complete solutions, so you don't feel bad if you need them. It's accessible to all levels of gamers, IMO.

It's a faithful recreation, with most of the original textures, sounds, and models (in a few places) while generally updating it... to a point. Admittedly, it could look a LOT better. But I appreciate the old, timey feel to it. It was very refreshing to play the free roam mode in a game I'd always traditionally had as point-n-click. Overall, a good blend of old and new. Highly recommended.

To those of you who have not played Myst before:
GET IT. It's an important piece of gaming history, and is a joy to explore. The plot isn't just handed to you - you have to find it, but it's more interesting that way. The music and visuals work well together to create an intriguing ambiance that makes you simply want to learn just what happened to these now-abandoned places.

If you have played through it before, consider the following:
All the puzzles are the same, the WASD controls can be a little weird at times, and Rime doesn't really add too much.
However, it WORKS on modern operating systems, so you don't have to go through a huge rigamarole just to get it working in the first place. Consider the monetary value of your time and, if you don't consider the hassle of finding the proper old Windows emulator just another puzzle, you'll probably come out ahead to just buy this latest version.

Who the hell designed the interface? I already read about the weird thing, not rotating if not moving, having to press right key. Another thing that annoys me in games is when they don't have invert mouse. I am used to inverted Y, I can get motion sickness or play badly with non-inverted, I am not going to get used to it. So,. I was looking at the settings and said "Wow, at least they seem to have an invert mouse option". And it gets even more crazy. The Invert option is only for traditional look (Wat?!) not for FPS controls. And when I put it, it automatically inverts both Y and X (Wtf?). It's two times impractical, I mean not only the FPS control is the one that should have invert, but just Invert Y not also X. Was the person who designed the controls drunk? It totally doesn't make sense. Even the options menu, minor, but the "X" at the left, intuitively I think it should be to escape from menu, not quit game. It's totally random and fail. Thank god it's just an adventure game, not needing crazy refleces and might try to play again, to see if I can finish Myst this time (I never liked the originals, never understood the dull world, random levers that you don't know what they do, and I do play traditional adventures. I thought with 3D immersion, maybe I can stay more in it's world and actually solve something).
