realMyst: Masterpiece Edition is a beautifully updated version of realMYST for today’s Mac and Windows computers - celebrating the 20th anniversary of Myst! The models and textures have been reconstructed to provide an amazing graphical experience. The environments have been enhanced to provide dynamic water, weather, lighting, foliage, focus, and more. The interface has been redesigned to provide an enjoyable way to explore for both novices and gamers.
realMyst: Masterpiece Edition - this is not your father's Myst! It’s been 20 years since Myst became your world, and there's never been a better time to revisit the Ages. This newly refreshed and rebuilt version of realMyst is all-things Myst, but amazingly more real. You can explore anywhere, unfettered, and in realtime! Pick your own path through the forest on Myst Island. Listen to the crickets as the sun sets in the Channelwood Age. Relax in the falling leaves in the Selenitic Age. Spin around for a full panoramic tour of Sirrus’ throne room. Seek shelter from the thunderstorm in Stoneship Age.
And If you’ve ever been overwhelmed by realtime 3D - too many controls or too much motion - realMyst has something for you! You have the option to play the game just like the original Myst - with a simple point and click! Point where you want to go - click the mouse and you move through the world seamlessly to the new location. As a tribute to Myst’s 20th anniversary we’ve also added the original Myst images when you play in this Classic mode. Hold down the shift key and the original Myst image pops up, so you can see the difference and fondly remember that early Myst experience.
We’ve added plenty of new features to enhance and assist you on your journey. So whether you’re visiting Myst for the first time or you want to remember the first time - there’s never been a better reason to lose yourself and let the surrealistic Ages of realMyst become your world.

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition reviews and comments

Myst was and still today a reference in this type of game. The series although finished remains a reference. and find the first episode completely redone with the possibility to wander around allows to rediscover the game. So yes a person who knows the game by heart will finish it in less than an hour.. but for those who do not know this game prepare you to think finished the games or you advance by being completely guided. You only have to rely on the information found and collected (personally I even had leaves handy or I had noticed the information collected) short this game is a marvel, peaceful and mysterious atmosphere. Myst is one of my favorite series (even if River's sequel to Myst according to remains the hardest episode of the series)

The Classic Myst game pioneed an entire genre of computer games and lay top 1 for a decade. Today, the game is almost forgotten, cultivated only by a small number of dedicated fans who keep their old traditions and stories alive-Original merchandise, book sets and copies are even sold as collectibles over the net... It is many years ago and therefore interesting to move through the exciting world of discovery again, filled with good memories. However, the sophisticated animations and the undetailed 3D graphics have deprived the game of the exciting atmosphere that is otherwise included in the vast Myst universe... The Game looks like most of all a mockup made as a private animation project, rather than a professional production. If you Are for Myst it is certainly worth trying-but the immersive effect disappears quickly after you have tristed around the sudden very simple Myst island with associated worlds.

Wonderful "Little" game. Requires a tremendous investigative mind. A game that sets high standards. Despite the fact that there is no game mechanics that is tiresome or repetitive, on the contrary, but simply because the problemlösandet itself is the content itself, and it is difficult. If you Use various kinds of help, it will be a small game with today's dimensions. If you Solve everything yourself or with a friend, it will be as they say. The Game becomes your world! Tips. Brew one jug and play with a friend to avoid tjuvkikningar when frustration strikes. There will be times when you just do not take, but must have a great deal of patience with the riddles. Just Think of the puzzles as riddles and you get the right attitude. You don't collect objects or build things together. The Riddles require no prior knowledge. All you need is your own imagination, logic and Utforskningslusta. This game is a small piece of jewelry. Negative? That game is from the beginning of the 90 century when gamers "flew with the butt" * and did not have online walkthroughs and solutions at hand. Today'S players are not always charmed by a game that is destroyed if you check up on how to get ahead. It works finfint on our Mac with i5 processor. * Flying with the butt is a reference to the early 1900-century pilots who did not have advanced instruments. They felt in the butt how the plane was inclined, if it was air under the wings etc. In this case, it means. In this case, it means. Play as if there was no help on the Internet. This makes the game enjoyable.
