realMyst Refines Gaming Experiences of Old

Posted by Blake Grundman on June 18th, 2012
iPad App - Designed for iPad

Remember back when that new fangled CD-ROM technology was just starting to make an impact on the PC market?  Suddenly developers went from having to squeeze their software onto floppy diskettes to having virtually unlimited storage space.  One game that redefined this era in PC gaming was a little game by the name of Myst.  Taking advantage of CD hardware, the game was one of the first puzzle/adventure games to feature a fully rendered three dimensional world.  It was technology far ahead of its time.

Fast forward nineteen years, and developer Cyan Worlds is bringing the game to a completely new audience on iPad as realMyst.  Designed for iPad 2 and newer, the developers are taking full advantage of the hardware, allowing players to navigate the world, without loading, for the first time ever.  It is awesome to see that this classic has been reborn for a completely new generation of players to enjoy.  You don't want to miss out on this chance to interact with this piece of history.

After over 15 years of being one of the coolest PC/Mac mystery-puzzle games, the original Myst comes to the iPhone - not a stripped down version of the game, but the full game!
