Myst 25th Anniversary Collection is Probably as Infuriating as it Used to Be

by Shane McGlaun

Way back in the day, I went straight from high school to college into a medical program that saw me going from a broke high-school student to 19-year-old with an actual career making good money. The very first thing I bought with my very first paycheck was a 3DO game system and a copy of Myst. I both loved and hated that game because it was so cool and so hard to play. This was way before you could Google and figure out what to do when you got stuck in a game.

Now, a quarter decade has passed since Cyan’s groundbreaking puzzle game arrived (yes, I feel old now) and a special edition is on Kickstarter called the Myst 25th Anniversary Collection. All of the Myst games will be included, but if you buy it on Kickstarter you will also get some sweet artifacts that won’t be sold again anywhere.

This collection has all seven Myst games, including Myst Masterpiece Edition, Riven: The Sequel to Myst, Myst III Exile, Myst IV Revelation, Myst V End of Ages, Myst Uru, and realMyst Masterpiece Edition. All games have been updated to run on Windows 10 and macOS 10.13. Available artifacts (which vary with the version you buy) include a Myst Linking Book with its own 800 x 480 screen inside featuring flythrough videos of the games. Gehn’s inkwell and pen, digital versions of three Myst novels, and original design sketches from the game.

A pledge of $49 or more gets you all the games. $99 or more gets you all the games for digital download and on DVD along with the Myst book. $169 or more gets digital and DVD games, a Myst book, the LCD Linking Book, and digital extras. $250 or more gets you the pen and ink well and more. The hand-drawn original concept art reward was going for $1,000 but 25 folks gobbled up all those already. The project has already blown through its goal on Kickstarter, so what are you waiting for?
