About the Game

Enter a world where nothing is as it seems... and adventure knows no bounds!
Journey to an island world eerily tinged with mystery... where every rock, every scrap of paper, every fleeting sound holds a clue to an ancient mystery. Enter, if you dare, a starkly beautiful landscape shrouded in intrigue and injustice. Only your wits and imagination hold the power to unlock the shocking betrayal of ages past!
Lose yourself in fantastic virtual exploration, now more compelling than ever in the stunning Myst® Masterpiece Edition. Breathtaking graphical realism blurs the line between fantasy and reality, challenging your wits, instincts, and powers of observation like never before. The fantasy beckons... can you resist its call?

Not very compatible with Windows 8.1. I was hoping that the availability on Steam meant this awesome game would be miraculously ported to modern platforms, but I had the following problems:
- no animations worked. Anything that was animated just didn't happen, such as the message from Atrus giving you the clue to rotate the tower.
- occasional full crashes. You can't even use Task Manager to kill the process, you have to reset the machine to recover. The crashes were mostly due to saving the game, but also occasionally due to animation.

I got it to work through the whole Channelwood Age (+- about 5 reboots), but because of the above I had a hard stop at the clock tower, whose puzzle involves animation and continually triggered a freeze.

I'm off to try realMyst-Masterpiece, which was developed much later (2014) than this (2000).

Its Myst what more is there to say, one of the best adventure games i've played. Even today its still a good game to pass the time.

Works fine on Windows 7 SP1 x64 (My set up anyway)

Awesome part of my childhood. Runs beautifully, even on 8.1. No crashes (yet!).
Beautiful graphics, wonderful soundtrack, and challangeing puzzles make this game worth the money. You won't regret it!

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! This game just does not work, plain and simple. realMyst works just fine on my computer, but this won't load a number of things that are needed to play. realMyst is the same price, and actually works.

Myst is a point and click game from the olden days, where things were simpler. FMV was taking off, and a slew of adventure games came out, one of them including Myst. What made Myst so special, you ask? Well, it told a story from a new perspective, and had mind-boggling puzzles. It really gave you this sense of adventure. Sure, the game has aged like ♥♥♥♥, but it's a good trip down memory lane. Get past the graphics, and you can treat yourself to an adventure classic.

*NOTE* This game has techincal issues on Steam, and I have experienced crashes, and has made the game almost unplayable. It's very glitchy and unstable in this condition. If you desparately want the game, try out GOG. The game probably runs fine with Win XP, but watch out for anything newer.
