Play OverviewPlay Overview

Myst (1983) is a classic video game graphic adventure. Published in 1983, and selling 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.

This classic game has been re-released and re-imagined on several platforms over the years, and is now available in 3 different variants:
  • Myst: Masterpiece Edition (closest to the original)
  • realMyst: Masterpiece Edition (fully explorable in 3D)
  • Myst (newest edition in full 3D, with VR support)

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Myst 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 10 months ago.
