I think this is part and parcel of the Myst Anniversary Kickstarter that happened a little while back.

Depends on the types of games you like.
Do you like mechanical puzzles?
Do you like exploration?
Do you mind if there are few characters to interact with and you are mainly exploring on your own?

Myst is on sale at GOG right now so if you're going to try it, now's the time.

Yes
Yes
I love interacting with characters

I guess its the type of game where you are all alone mostly. I think I should still give one a try. Which one should I start with?

CountZero,

The first game is MYST.

GOG sells this in two versions:

MYST Masterpiece Edition (with original graphics, now playable along with the whole series for Windows 10)

RealMYST (real-time weather, improved graphics) plus a bonus MYST Age called Ryme with new puzzles in that age.

Yup.

The first one -- Myst or RealMyst.
The advantage of playing the games in order is so you know the characters and the story.
Also it's the shortest.

Myst -- introduces Atrus, Sirrus, and Achenar
RealMyst -- same as Myst only using 1st person 3D instead of snapshot style point-and-click. Has the extra "Rime Age" on the end.
Riven -- introduces Gehn and Catherine
Myst III (developed by Presto, makers of the Journeyman Project games) --- introduces Saavedro
Myst IV (developed by Ubusoft) -- introduces Yeesha as a child, reappearance of Sirrus and Achenar
Uru -- option of 1st or 3rd person 3D, Yeesha as an adult
Myst V -- more like Uru 2 than the earlier Myst games. 1st person 3D only

You are playing the same unnamed person in Myst, Riven, Myst III, and Myst IV in the early 1800's according to the Myst series wiki
http://dni.wikia.com/wiki/The_Stranger
Uru and Myst V take place many years later in present day, at the time the games were published.

Myst IV was the first game I ever played around 11 years ago on win xp and I didn't have a clue how to play a video game. I've come a long way since then and played many many games. I never thought I'd get to enjoy Myst IV again as I couldn't get my discs to play on win 7 onwards so I could only hope there would be a re-release one day. Fantastic that Cyan gained the rights to update and release the Myst games. I've downloaded Myst IV from GOG and I'm delighted to be able to re-acquaint myself with this lovely game.

I think this is the last time I donate to a Kickstarter.
People who did not donate have been able to get Myst III and IV from GOG for days now. But because I "donated" over $100 to the Kickstarter I have to wait for some email with a "link" to a questionnaire to be sent to me before I'm sent a GOG code.

Email from Kickstarter says:
Quote:
1. You should get an email with your individual survey link from Blackbox to the email you provided Kickstarter. Please fill it out ASAP so we can distribute your rewards when ready.

You can also find your survey by inputting the email you gave Kickstarter here: https://backers.blackbox.cool/myst-25th-anniversary-collection

I go to that blackbox link, type in my email address, and they send an automated email.
But there is no link to any "survey" in that email.
They only list the information they will want.
