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.
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.
