Myst 25th Anniversary Release

Myst III: Exile
Myst 25th Anniversary Release
Steam Edition

We are very excited to be releasing Myst III: Exile on the day of Myst’s 25th Anniversary on Steam! Today’s release of Myst III: Exile and Myst IV: Revelation completes the 7-game Myst Collection in digital format. We hope you enjoy Myst III whether you are a first-time player or a returning player who is feeling a little nostalgic.

We have been working to ready all of the games in the Myst series for the 25th Anniversary of Myst. Most of the games in the series required compatibility updates and Myst III, like Myst and Riven, needed a little more than that to run reliably on modern day computers. So, we partnered up with the ResidualVM team and have worked closely with them to bring you this digital release version of Myst III: Exile.

Should you have something you would like to report regarding Myst III: Exile, please contact us directly at We would be happy to assist you.

Release Notes:

Myst III: Exile is available in 6 languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Dutch. Select the language option of your choice from the menu that appears when you launch the game.

Windows 10 compatibility update.

Please make sure your anti-virus program is not blocking the game from launching. You may need to modify the settings in your anti-virus program to unblock the files “residualvm.exe” and “M3.”
The file, “residualvm.exe,” is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Myst III Exile\residualvm.exe” (for a default install).
The file, “M3,” is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Myst III Exile\Myst III<your installed language>/M3.”

Make sure you have the latest drivers installed for your graphics setup, otherwise you may experience crashing or oddities with the graphics.

Known Issues:

Display settings will need to be set at 100% (default) in order to avoid the game appearing in an offset position on your display. This can be adjusted in the Scale and Layout section of the Display settings menu in Windows 10.

The cursor size stays the same when switching from windowed to fullscreen.

If the player skips a movie where Saavedro attacks the player, any movies played afterward in this instance of the game are skipped as well.

When standing in each of the rings in the Resonance Ring puzzle on Amateria you get a generic shaking of the screen. In the original version of Myst 3, each selected resonance would change the intensity of the shaking in sync with the actual resonance sound. This will be fixed in a later update.
