'Myst V: End Of Ages' Original Soundtrack Now Available

Picking up immediately where the original Myst ended, players are presented the privilege, challenge and responsibility of restoring the lost empire of the D'niTM – an ancient civilisation of people who thrived for thousands of years but later met with a great catastrophe. Like each previous Myst title, Myst V: End of Ages advances the graphical beauty and detail of its worlds with a fully immersive 3D environment. Cyan carefully crafted and combined elements of adventure, puzzles, storyline and gameplay innovation creating a worthy ending to the one game to which millions will forever compare any adventure title – Myst.

Cyan Audio Director/Composer Tim Larkin has created the game's original soundtrack which serves as an homage, of sorts, to the entire franchise. Listeners will find an evocative taste of the isolated and eerie moods, the vivid and bursting orchestral productions, and the unique combinations of world music that have been present in past soundtracks combined into a new and invigorating 17 track album, woven together to carry the wonder and beauty of MYST V, and to bring the series to a masterful and worthy end.

An accomplished musician, composer and sound designer, Tim Larkin creates innovative and mood-enhancing soundtracks for videogames, film and television. His recent game titles include Pariah (Digital Extremes/Groove Games), The Incredibles: When Danger Calls (THQ) and Uru: Ages Beyond MYST, which received PC Gamer's award for “Best Sound," GameSpot’s award for “Best Sound Effects” and a Game Developer’s Choice nomination for best “Audio.” Larkin was also the sound designer for the Academy Award winning animated short film The ChubbChubbs!. His music from Uru: Ages Beyond MYST will be performed at “Video Games Live” in Seattle (10/29) and Vancouver (10/30). For more information visit

Rand Miller, co-creator of MYST and founder of Cyan Worlds, and his Spokane-based development team have brought the development of the final episode and storyline to a close in its most dramatic and immersive experience to date, with photorealistic 3D scenes, innovative new slate and in-game help systems, and intricate puzzles with depth like no adventure game before.
