  • Myst is a graphic adventure puzzle video game designed by the Miller brothers, Robyn and Rand. It was developed by Cyan, Inc., published by Brøderbund, and released as a PC game for the Macintosh platform in 1993. In the game, players are told that a special book has caused them to travel to Myst Island. There, players solve puzzles and, by doing so, travel to four other worlds, known as Ages, which reveal the backstory of the game's characters. After the development of several games aimed at children, the Miller brothers conceived of Myst as a game for adults. Development began in 1991 and was Cyan's biggest undertaking to date. Technical constraints of the time influenced the design of the game and the production of its graphics, which were state-of-the-art but static. Robyn Miller ended up composing 40 minutes of synthesized music that became the soundtrack to Myst. Myst was a surprise hit, with critics lauding the ability of the game to immerse players in its fictional world. The game was the best-selling PC game for a time, until The Sims exceeded its sales in 2002. Myst helped drive adoption of the then-nascent CD-ROM format. Multiple remakes and ports of the game to other platforms have been released, as well as spin-off novels and other media. It was followed by several sequels in the Myst series of games. (en)
