Description

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition is a beautifully updated version of realMYST for today’s Mac and Windows computers – celebrating the 20th anniversary of Myst! 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.

We’ve added plenty of new features to enhance and assist you on your journey. So whether you’re visiting Myst for the first time or you want to remember the first time – there’s never been a better reason to lose yourself and let the surrealistic Ages of realMyst become your world.

  1. RealS..IT!
    by StinkingLouse, Spain - Mar 9th 2015

    This joke of a game is unworthy even of writing a review about it. The speed of rendering is inexplicably slow for today standards. Trying to look around with your mouse is like trying to fly a jet fighter in a drunken state. The "sensation of being there" is near to zero: it's more like "being in a postcard". The environments are static: just the ripples of water (if it's in your line of sight) and two or three birds flying (if they are). The game doesn't give you any feedback about what you're doing (that's pushing buttons and levers everywhere), so the need, desire or curiosity for doing something is null. The areas to explore are so small that you feel you are exploring in your bathroom. Believe me: my daily morning walks are far more intersting than playing this. Don't waste your time with it: life is too short.

  2. Best Ever
    by GF Horn, USA - Jan 14th 2015

    Myst was the first PC game I ever played and I don't know of any that compares. I loved the sequels but realMyst on my Mac was almost like doing it all over again only better. Thanks and I hope there will be more for Mac users.
