You have found a book called Myst. It describes an island world in very great detail. As you put your hand on the last page, your world dissolves to black and you fall to the world that was just described. You figure that the ending has not yet been written. Now, to get out, the player has to explore what are called "ages," solve puzzles, and get out of Myst. Written by Director9ff <>

Although the Island of Myst was supposed to be Atrus and his family's home, there were no actual living quarters (e.g. Bedrooms, Kitchens, etc.). No place for them to sleep or eat. See more »


[first lines]
Atrus: I realized the moment I fell into the fissure, that the book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse.

It may be hard but it's way cool and atmospheric.
26 September 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

You really do get the feel of absolute abandon and isolation while playing Myst. The graphics may be rather dated now (especially compared to the modern graphics in Uru and Myst IV) but it's easy to get immersed in the quiet, lonely environment and believe your actually there. The sound effects and music are slight and subtle rather than overbearing like in other video games.

Since Myst the franchise has indeed developed and evolved. People still tend to think of them and point and click slide shows. Which isn't very fair. Yes, Myst is this way, though it was made 11 years ago and graphic cards back then were not the frontiers of technology they are today.

A lot of patience and intelligence is needed to solve the puzzles and put the clues together. A lot of reading and note-taking is required and those looking for shoot-em-ups and violence should look elsewhere.

Myst is, indeed, a game for the refined gamer.
