Obscure Puzzle Adventure ‘Myst’ Re-launches on Smartphones

Cast your mind back to the early nineties, and perhaps you’ll remember spilling endless hours into a game called Myst. Often hailed as a classic in the adventure game genre, the original Myst released in 1993 and became the best selling PC game of the nineties, until it was eclipsed by The Sims in 2002.

Today, developer Cyan has teamed up with Noodlecake Studios to allow modern day audiences to dive into the classic worlds of both Myst and its sequel Riven. The full list of features present in the updated versions of both games is as follows:

  • All of the original Myst Ages and bonus Rime Age content
  • Bluetooth controller support for Android phones and tablets, including NVIDIA Shield
  • Full Myst gameplay and interaction
  • Dynamic 3D environments and sounds
  • Haunting Myst score by Robyn Miller
  • Simple navigation – touch and hold to move, swipe to turn
  • Advanced navigation – run, move backward, invert look
  • Interaction Guides demonstrate how to work with objects
  • Bookmark feature to save and restore progress
  • realMyst Hint Guide in case you get stumped

Interested players can purchase realMyst today from the Google Play Store for the first time, the App Store, and Amazon for $6.99 USD. Riven will also see an Android release in the near future.
