    Steam/GOG Release

    So, why exactly have Myst III through V not had a re-release on a digital distribution platform like Steam or GOG yet? It's been a long time to hold off on such a thing, don't you think?

    As for why Mst III and IV are not available for digital distribution, Cyan and Ubisoft are currently discussing transferring rights between Ubi (the publisher of 3 and 4) to Cyan, don't have the link right a quick Google should yield that. As Cyan is the franchise rights holder but not the developer of Myst 3 and 4 those 2 games must be in some sort of legal murkiness as to how profits are going to be split and that's why they have not been made available yet, a shame really.

    I really wish they would complete whatever deals they need to do to release Myst III and IV to GOG/Steam. I'm working my way through Riven and really want to go through the series in order. I would rather not mess with the old physical copies.

    I have done a thorough Google search and have turned up with no such archive or credible evidence of what your saying. Can you please search for and provide a link to an article that backs your claim of Ubi talking to Cyan about transferring rights to those games?

    It was slightly mentioned during Cyan's Google hangout.

    Here's a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMAL-Rp0cGo

    That video is a little over an hour long. Umm. I don't mean to be lazy but do you know where in the video it was mentioned?

    *EDIT* - Never-mind. I found it. It's at 0:42:13 in the video for anyone who wants to see it.

    And Thank you "realXCV" for sharing that link. I (and I'm sure others, besides me) really appreciated that very much.
