'Myst' Reimagined Using Unreal Engine 4 And VR - Screens & Trailer

Built from the ground up to play in either VR or flatscreen PC, Cyan has reimagined Myst and created the version fans have been asking for.

It’s Myst - in a whole new dimension!

Myst made its debut in 1993 to critical and popular acclaim and went on to become the best-selling PC game of the 20th century. 

Visit the starkly beautiful Myst island, eerily tinged with mystery and shrouded in intrigue. Explore the deeper connections and uncover a story of ruthless family betrayal.

Myst is fully redesigned and created from the ground up using Unreal Engine while many of the puzzles have been reimagined and engineered to include optional puzzle randomization and enhanced accessibility. Including new art, sound, interactions, and even optional puzzle randomization, the highly anticipated modern, definitive Myst experience has finally arrived!

Journey to the Ages, unravel the puzzles, and become part of the epic story. Like never before you can now be a part of the surrealistic adventure that will become your world!

“We’ve been waiting for the stars to align to create a VR version of Myst - and I’m so excited to announce that alignment! Myst has always been about creating a world to lose yourself in, and VR takes the Myst   experience to an entirely new level. It’s an almost magical experience for me, after so many years, to wander around the Ages of Myst and truly feel transported! We hope it will be for you, too.” says Cyan CEO Rand Miller.

Myst will be released first as a VR-Only title on the Oculus Quest platform for $29.99, with the PC version - including 2D and support for additional VR hardware - coming to Steam/ at a later date.
