Myst III: Exile's new villain, Saavedro, played by Academy Award nominee Brad Dourif (Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) plans to take revenge on Atrus and his family for the sins of Atrus' greedy, scheming sons.

Story

Myst III: Exile transports players ten years forward in the Myst universe, where a new villain lies in wait. Saavedro, played by Academy Award nominee Brad Dourif (Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest), has been hiding on Atrus' Ages, awaiting his chance to gain revenge upon Atrus and his family. Inadvertently, Atrus himself has provided that chance. He and Catherine have reestablished contact with the D'ni, a race of people whose knowledge enables them to write the special linking Books first encountered in Myst. Atrus hopes to see the D'ni civilization restored to its full potential, and his efforts to do so provide the perfect impetus for Saavedro to orchestrate his revenge. Players must track Saavedro through five surreal Ages, solving puzzles and uncovering the truth behind this new adversary and his devious plot. Only then can disaster be averted, and the fate of thousands ultimately determined…
