Myst is a new installment of the classic first-person adventure game, produced by the independent studio Cyan, the authors of the original Myst and the warmly received sequel Riven. In response to the fans' requests, the developers prepared a remake of the cult adventure using the Unreal Engine. The updated version allows the player to immerse themselves again in the secrets of the island, also allowing them to explore the world using VR technology for Oculus Quest.

Plot

In terms of plot, Myst is not much different from the original. The player again moves to the island, which he decides to explore. Over time, he finds the books, drawn up by a certain Atrus, enabling him to travel between worlds called Ages. In each of these worlds, the main character discovers new clues, allowing him to gradually learn about the history of the island.

Mechanics

The gameplay takes place from a first person perspective (FPP), using the classic point-and-click interface (for the PC version). This time Myst is also available for VR sets, so you can play it standing up or using the whole room. This will increase the gaming experience and the feeling of being in the game world.

The goal is to explore the available worlds and collect clues about the history of the island. It also has to deal with various puzzles, which this time, if the appropriate option is activated, can be generated at random. The end of the Myst is dependent on the decisions that the player makes during the game.

Technical aspects

Myst is a three-dimensional edition of the original with a refreshed graphic design. Unreal Engine was used to develop this version of the game. The new version of the cult adventure game includes new graphics, audio and interaction options, and allows you to explore the surreal world using VR technology.
