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. A Classic

    The release of the first Myst was awesome. these games are exciting as well as challenging. A wide variety of complex puzzles and many locations to explore.

  2. An adventure through dimensions
    by wobbleboxx, Germany - Aug 31st 2014

    The puzzles have the right amount of difficulty and the story brings everthing to life. My recommendation is to read the books in the library, so you get deeper into the story. The puzzles are very diverse and offer a lot of mechanical stuff to activate and play with. I fell through the world once but other than that the gameplay is pretty robust. I would love to customize the controls, so you could look around without holding down the right mouse button. If you're stuck somewhere the game offers a lot of hints and will point you at the right direction using a funny written walkthrough-like help.

    If you play in the "old style" point and click its heaps easier.
    I thought it was great - a blast from the past.
