The worlds have been reconstructed and enhanced to provide realistic water, changing weather, dynamic lighting, life-like foliage, bloom and other camera effects, and more. We’ve even redesigned the interface to provide an enjoyable way to explore for both novices and gamers.

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition – this is not your father’s Myst! It’s been 20 years since Myst became your world, and there’s never been a better time to revisit the Ages. This newly refreshed and rebuilt version of realMyst is all-things Myst, but amazingly more real. You can explore anywhere, unfettered, and in realtime! Pick your own path through the forest on Myst Island. Listen to the crickets as the sun sets in the Channelwood Age. Relax in the falling leaves in the Selenitic Age. Spin around for a full 360 degree tour of Sirrus’ throne room. Seek shelter from the thunderstorm in Stoneship Age.

And If you’ve ever been overwhelmed by realtime 3D – too many controls or too much motion – realMyst has something for you! You have the option to play the game just like the original Myst – with a simple point and click! Point where you want to go – click the mouse and you move through the world seamlessly to the new location. As a tribute to Myst’s 20th anniversary we’ve also added the original Myst images when you play in this Classic mode. Hold down the shift key and the original Myst image pops up, so you can see the difference and fondly remember that early Myst experience.

  1. My toddlerhood reborn
    by wandergirl, USA - Oct 15th 2015

    Some of my earliest memories are of playing this game with my uncle...I know it too well now, since I've read the story version in the guidebook to death (it was a pretty good story). When I downloaded this and found the book about Rime, though, I was immediately thrilled, knowing that there was more to the game now. Nighttime was annoying until I figured out the flashlight mechanic, and then all I wanted was to explore Channelwood at night to revive some of the old chills; finding and exploring Rime was incredible. Since there are no fail states in the game, just knowing the general story kills most of the challenge, but it was still wonderful to experience again - the soundtrack, in particular, is the same spooky nightmare fuel and I love it.

    All that said, I DO wish there had been an option to reset the graphics to the old versions - while some places, like the island itself and the underground rooms in the Stoneship Age, are more detailed and engaging than before, other places have taken a huge step back with the use of "improved" graphics. The red and blue books and the Channelwood Age, especially, looked a LOT better in the original, checking with the little comparison checker was almost painful. But that's a tiny gripe, really. If you know this game top to bottom like I do, I reccommend buying it, playing it through, finding Rime, and figuring that place out yourself - don't look up anything, it's fun to solve the old-fashioned-Myst-style puzzles anew.
