Nancy, I started to play by just visiting the Island for now.

The scenery is gorgeous.

I left the game at daylight and came back to check and it was I presume at night fall with some lights in the stairs at the dock.

Thanks Chief!

Let's hope that the game will be a success, so that Riven can be given the same treatment.

As an aging "MYSTer" I have a few questions about this announcement. I still have my original copies of MYST, MYST Masterpiece Edition, and RealMYST (As well as all the books, the other five games, the comics, etc.!) Is this new version different from all three of the previous MYST games? Also, if I purchase this new game will I be able to save it to a disk to add to my collection? Thanks in advance for whatever you can tell me.

The Haze, this Masterpiece Edition of Real Myst is not different from the previous one regarding game play, from as much as I played it.


But the scenery: wow.

Take the time to read the text of the link on the first post to notice the improvement.


As for the saving to a disk, you will have to wait for an expert to post a comment on this.

Hi Chief. I have played Real Myst over and over again through the years. The graphics are incredible. Could it "look" even better in this newest version? BTW, I am a MYST-A-HOLIC. LOL

So cool! Also, the realtime version of Riven IS being worked on--not by Cyan but some dedicated fans. Riven project

Thanks, Chief,

I am so excited about this news. Myst is what got me addicted to adventure games in the first place. I have several versions of it already, including Real Myst, but I'm anxious to download this version to my iMac. I have it on my iPad, but I think it deserves the "Big Screen". And then there's Riven - Wow!

Chief, I looked on Steam and caught a bit of conversation about having to have an older version of QuickTime. Is this true? If so does this impact anything else. Also, I am assuming you can get an older version off the QuickTimes web site.
Thanks.
I need to go to your link.

Nancy, from what I read at my Control Panel about Quick Time, is that I have version 7,6,8 and seems to be up to date. I did not think about QT when installing the game.

And I have Win 7.

The game runs perfectly.

If this is the conversation you're looking at, it's for the old disc version from 14 years ago and has nothing to do with RealMyst Masterpiece --
http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1415363
He's talking about tweaks that helped him run the original disk version of RealMyst on his Windows 7 computer. It looks like he was missing some codecs. I doubt installing QuickTime had any effect on his game unless it supplied a missing codec. The fact that he used a NoCD (the RealMystFixedEXEs.zip file) may have also helped.

The Steam version of RealMyst mentioned in that thread is not the Masterpiece version, which did not exist in 2010 when that thread was started.

Even the original PC version of Real Myst does not require QuickTime.
In fact my old Real Myst box specifically states:
"QuickTime is not necessary."

The only Myst games for PC that needed QuickTime were the original Myst, Myst Masterpiece, and Riven.

QuickTime was an optional install included with Myst III in case you needed a movie viewer to watch the "Making of" movie. Some people thought it was used in the game because it was included with it. But it wasn't used in the game itself. I played the PC version of Myst III without any version of QuickTime installed on the computer. The PC version of Myst IV did not use QuickTime either.

The Mac versions of Myst III and IV did use QuickTime, and it's possible QuickTime was used for the small filmed sequences of the brothers and Atrus that were inserted in the Mac version of RealMyst. But I assume you're using a PC and not a Mac.

Chief, if the graphics in the newest version look even better than the original version of Real Myst, I'll be first on line to purchase it. One way to tell would be to have an actual DEMO released at some
future date. HAPPY GAMING!

WOW! Thanks so much for the great reply. I remember playing Myst years ago and you provided such insight to the series. Your link to the new series is wonderful and the scenes definitely make me want to return.
You are truly the wizard of the Myst series!!!!! rah

All you oldsters who have played this game should go to the link above. The person doing the playthrough has clearly not played MYST before. His voiceover sounds just like my thoughts when I played this twenty years ago. It's fun to hear what I must have sounded like way back when.
