Myst, one of the most internationally renowned and often baffling adventure games of all time, is getting itself a 25th Anniversary edition, thanks to a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year. They asked for $247,500 and got $2,810,127 from backers, so it seems safe to say that people still really like Myst.
In 1993 Cyan released what would go on to be the biggest-selling PC game of all time for nearly a decade. By 2005 the studio was on the verge of bankruptcy.
The Myst TV series announced last autumn will be coming to Hulu, according to Deadline.
Classic point-and-click adventure Myst is set to return as a TV series and an accompanying tie-in game.
Back in 2000 the 1993 point-and-click adventure Myst was remade as realMyst, a fully 3D restoration that allowed players to walk around the eerie isles as they saw fit. RealMyst was later spruced up for a shinier iOS release last year and now the original developer of the game, Cyan, has released a significantly enhanced version of its two decade old classic with realMyst: Masterpiece Edition, available now on PC and Mac via Steam.
Video games struggle to be taken as seriously as films or paintings or books or other pieces of culturally accepted works of art. Yeah, thanks Duke Nukem.

The biggest game in terms of filesize on the App Store has to be Riven, the resurrected 1997 sequel to point-and-click adventure game Myst.
I absolutely blame Myst. I blame it for everything. Everything bad about gaming, every hateful puzzle, every stupid cut-scene, every dreadful piece of writing. I don't care if any of it is Myst's fault, I still blame Myst. I blame it for the recession, I blame it for X Factor, I blame it for the war in Iraq.
