Myst is back... in VR form!

some of the music at the end is from Riven, so maybe we're finally getting the Riven remake that everyone deserves? maybe it's finally time to make Myst 6, or hell, Uru 2. if you've never played this 90s classic and all five of its sequels, there's no better time. i just hope you're...... into books.

i do not work for Cyan's advertising team, i just really love Myst, Riven, Exile, Uru, Revelation and uh... tolerate End of Ages, as well as the terrible myst books, and the group of germans who still do a synchronized dance in the dwindling Uru Online community.

closing the book while Sirrus or Achenar talk has always been a feature.

when obduction came out their advertisement for it amounted to posting one tweet a week after, so I'm pretty sure no one actually works for their advertising team.

yeah they're a small shop these days and they seem to just eschew advertising entirely. Myst is like the absolute first game that should have gone to VR, but Cyan didn't know how to do it until they hit their Obduction stretch goals, lol.

i couldn't find the video in the OP by looking at their website or searching Youtube for Cyan, i had to get it from my friend who beta tested Uru.

I think it will go to console VR later too, Obduction did.

I don't have any VR because I'm stereoblind and I haven't been able to test it to see if it works for me, but I'd be tempted for Myst

Bro I loved Myst so much but holy poo poo the games after Riven were hot garbage. I mean MYST isnt that great in hindsight, but like the ATMOSPHERE and goddamn music and tone were just so goddamn good I ignored everything I didn't like about it and it was a glorious feeling of awe that I chase and never could achieve.

Cyan was busy with their ambitious MMO project Uru that crashed and burned in the end, so Myst 3 and 4 were farmed out to other companies that really missed the mark tonally about what made Myst and Riven great. Instead they tried to make them in an over the top Hollywood blockbuster style with "Epic" overblown orchestral music everywhere. Then Myst 5 was made by Cyan but hastily cobbled together from remnants of canceled Uru content and featuring one of the most annoying characters in the series.

Uru has the same great atmosphere as Myst and Riven, though it's a very disjointed experience since it's built on the remains of a canceled MMO.

Uru owns even if some of the puzzles are absolutely bizarre. one required you to read like 10 diaries of d'ni kings so you could figure out their unit of time measurement and then stand in a specific place for like 45 minutes. that one probably should have gotten the axe. the online stuff is funny because a very small community got super into it and basically used it like meetup dot com

The best puzzle is one where a bridge is stuck, so instead of doing the Classic Myst Thing of finding a way around and unjamming it from the other side you do a running jump to kick it down.
