OverviewOverview

Myst is a classic video game graphic adventure. Published in 1983, and sellig over six million copies, it pre-dates many modern adventure games and created a new genre for gaming. Exploring by clicking in the world to move, you use a special book to travel to the island of Myst and solve puzzles to access four other worlds, which reveal the backstory of the game's characters.

You can interact with specific objects on some screens by clicking them. Some items can be picked up and carried to use in different locations, as well as journal pages which provide backstory. To finish the game your aim is to explore the whole island and be transported to each of the "Ages". As you do this, you discover a story told without words, ahead of its time.
