Myst heads to DS

Puzzler due in November.

Descending over our news hills this afternoon is Midway with the revelation that Myst will be heading to DS.

It'll be available in November and be a similar affair to last year's PSP offering. However, Cyan Worlds will be rebuilding it to make use of the quirky DS controls, and is including additional New and Rime ages to explore.

Myst is an adventure game built around solving puzzles in picturesque locations. There's no inventory and no death, just bastardly taxing tasks. However, the real thrill will apparently come from unravelling the "intrafamily" drama as you go. Spooky.

The series has been around for donkey's years now, with the first instalment hitting Macintosh shelves in 1993. It's been immensely popular over the ages, too, although it's somewhat retired into its own niche these days.

Myst Online: Uru Live launched in February, spreading the puzzle-vision into the MMO genre. Head over to the official site for more information.
