Description

Myst was the bestselling video game for several years, until The Sims exceeded its sales. Myst and its success had a significant impact on the first-person adventure game genre and was a showcase for many buyers of their first cd-rom drives. The story has you stumbling upon a most intriguing book, a book titled Myst. You have no idea where it came from, who wrote it, or how old it is. Reading through its pages provides you with only a superbly crafted description of an island world. As you reach the end of the book, you lay your hand on a page. Suddenly your own world dissolves into blackness, replaced with the island world the pages described. Now you're here, wherever here is, with no option but to explore. Myst is a first-person point-and-click adventure where the player controls a character known as The Stranger. Magically transported into the world described in the book, he needs to explore Myst Island and solve its mysteries. The game is presented as a series of scenes where the player acts with the environment by clicking and manipulating objects. There are no enemies and it is not possible to die. Through Myst Island, the game is further divided into mini-worlds set in different ages accessed through different books. Due to the game's popularity, many "Myst clones" came out after it and some adventure fans blame it for the death of the once traditional point-and-click adventure genre.
