Myst 25th Anniversary Collection

edited 8 May in Gaming

A little over two weeks to go on their Kickstarter. If you've enjoyed Myst as much as I have, I highly recommend checking it out.

They've managed to get the licensing squared away to offer every episode of Myst (did you know there are 7??) together for the first time, all spruced up to run on both Windows 10 and Mac OSX. I've never played several of them because by the time I got them I had trouble running their legacy requirements.

ALSO THEY MADE A "REAL" LINKING BOOK. Geeked.

    I'm just playing Myst for the first time after missing it years ago. I saw realMyst on the Play store, and figured maybe it was finally time to find out what all the noise is about.

    The game that made the CD-ROM a killer app in PCs!

    The Oculus of 1998!

    Realistically, you can't expect it to have the same impact as the folks coming to it from a nostalgia aspect, because it really did create a new level no one had ever seen before in gaming. That said, it's fundamentally a plot-driven puzzle game (the origin of the genre, even) with gorgeous scenery, so it's the best possible candidate for graphics updates to reach a new audience.

    Thanks for the reminder. Backed.

    Less than 3 days remaining, and the extra goodies have been piling up pretty steadily. They're nearing 1000% of their goal.

    They've committed to a Mac version being available, which convinced me to get a second copy for Christmas for my dad (you need a second Kickstarter account to do this, FYI).
