About This Game

Inviting you to explore a vast deserted island, Myst slowly reveals a haunting storyline involving a series of books that unlock alternate planes of reality. With only your wits as your guide, you must decode the hidden clues placed throughout the game's gorgeous 3D environments. Through text, video clips and tricky puzzles, you’ll discover a world so real, you will be certain that it truly exists.

Key features:

Revisit the world of Myst like you've never seen it before. For the first time, the surreal world of Myst can be experienced in full 3-D.

Anyone who is looking to play myst again should get this version of myst,it's far better than the original and it's still better than the new release,bare in mind that it's an old game and that it has not faired well in terms of compatibility but can be fixed easy enough by right clicking the .exe choosing compatibility and setting it to windows xp and put a tick in run as administrator and you will be sorted !

For those who have heard of myst and are thinking of buying,this game is for everyone and anyone who likes to explore strange new lands,solve puzzles and be immersed in wonder and atmosphere,myst is like a dream from another dimension,one that you know nothing about but can't help but wonder about and want to know more about,it has lasted the test of time thus far,my six year old plays both myst and riven over most of my games and he is hard to please when it comes to graphics,he has fallen for the characters and locations,the sound and atmosphere,the interesting puzzles and the story just like I was many years ago and I still am now,not many games can do that.

Play the game with an open mind,enjoy it's difficulty at times,accept the game for what it is and enjoy YOUR adventure.

I recommend reading the three myst books in paperback or digital as it explains a lot and is a fantastic read in it's own right,it will also set you up for riven,the sequel to myst !

Enjoy

realMYST is undeniably the link between the MYST of the past and the gamers of today. While the original still contains as much as nostalgic value as it did the day I first opened it, this remake creates a modern experience for those who lack those original ties. If you've heard about MYST and want to try it without any prior experience or appreciation for the early-90's graphics and style, then realMYST might be just what you need.

This game is a classic!
You find yourself on a small Island somewhere in an unknown ocean. Your only company on the island are lots of tricky puzzles. Your job is to solve theese puzzles, find out more about the one who created everything on the island and finally to get yourself out of it.
Be warned This isn´t just another point and click adventure game. This is a hard nut to crack, but i had a great time doing it!

Myst is a remake of an old point-and-click puzzle game from many years ago. I came into the game knowing it age, and realizing that I would be dealing with compatibility issues because of it. So, after a bit of tweaking- thanks to the Steam forums for help on discovering that disabling scaling on high-DPI in the compatibility issues would keep it from freezing- I was able to dive right in.
With no death or real failure- mostly- in the game, it is a nice change of pace from most games in one's library to explore and investigate the ages, or worlds, bridged into by the linking books found on the island of Myst.
The worlds were beautiful, the sound was excellent- though repetitive in some areas, and the atmosphere of the game was excellent down to the very end. While the interface took some getting used to, and remained a little clunky even after I got used to it, Myst is enjoyable when you play it for what it is. The puzzles may be easy to some, boggling to others, but its a fine little game if you come to appreciate it for what it is. If anything, I am a little saddened that the game was limited in its scope by the technology of the time.

I loved this game and am still trying to get through the other 5. Before buying it i would reccommend doing a bit of research on tweaking it. This game (same goes for Riven) came out in the mid 90s. The fact they run at all still is amazing, if you decide to purchase this, it will take a few minutes time to stabalize it to run at proper efficiency. Message me if you ever need some help with tweaking riven uru or realmyst so you may enjoy this as much as i have. (I also would encourage you to read the old game guides because they are written like a personal journal of the character)
