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 <>

At the time Sirrus and Achenar became trapped in the red and blue books, both Atrus and Catherine were unable to return to Myst. So who was left to tear the pages from the red and blue books, and scatter them across the Myst worlds *after* Sirrus and Achenar were inside? 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. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, and I must admit however, such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed... and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending ...

Myst & real-Myst:: Beautiful Dreams as Thoughtful Portals
22 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

Myst is one of the most unusual creations to change gaming history! This surreal Artwork renders a dream-like place full of puzzling controls, eclectic architecture, and strange technology.

As you explore, you will discover this complex landscape holds an even more detailed history. A family story no less tragic than any Greek play unfolds as you search through notes, and messages, and examine the worlds in which some of the events occurred.

Myst caught the world by storm on its release and it deserved to! It wasn't just its considerable beauty, or the safety designed into the gameplay (though that was a welcome relief in itself) nor was it the cleverness of its many puzzles. It was the entire mindset of the island...resting from its old battles....waiting on you for resolution.

There are many who "got" Myst..who understand the intuitive way it works... who flowed their minds into Myst's story and truly absorbed these Ages as their alternate reality. You don't have to be a genius to solve Myst..though intelligence helps! You need to be able to imagine where you are, and realize what clues the journals are offering you.

If you can do this, then Myst has many delightful hours of play in store for you. I recommend realMyst to all those who have not played yet (and have a new enough computer) the graphics are awesome and the game play is greatly expanded by the 3d realtime freedom of movement.

The performances are excellent... all of them.. the Miller brothers are quite convincing as Atrus & his sons.
