No offense Sirusblack, but you've most probably just offended everyone at Cyan and all those that love Uru.

Uru rocks, and it's only going to rock harder as it grows. Ha ha! Now we've got Uru threads in the Myst IV forum.

Actually, the quote should go, "FATHER FORGIVE THEM for they know not etc." You're thinking of the confessional: "BLESS me Father for I have sinned." Interesting Freudian slip?

I viewed URU as an awakening for me, I had played all the Myst games, read all the books, been there, done that, and had kinda moved on. Then URU came along, different, yes, but new and filled with the scent and taste of Myst. Now I am once again obsessed and anxious. Looking forward to X2 and now, Revelation! It really seems too good to be true. I just hope I don't get hit by a truck before Sep. 1!!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I agree, I can hardly wait, too! I love all things Myst and with having only gotten Uru in February, plus an expansion pack, I'd thought that it was a pretty good year to begin with. Now with a second X-Pack, plus another Myst game on the way - well, I can hardly sit still! June and September aren't so far away, either. Yeah .. RIGHT!

I have RealMyst coming so it'll give me something to do to pass a little bit of time, anyway.

Here I go again...I'm having another of those combination blonde-senior moments. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

RealMyst..?? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Have I lost my mind..? I am only aware of the Myst I played many, many years ago.

Is there another Myst I should know about...and...if there is...where do I get it. I haven't noticed it at the stores..??

DawnaDune,

RealMyst was a 3-D version of MYST. The puzzles and the scenery were the same as MYST but you were able to walk around in a 1st person 3-D environment.

Is RealMyst something that I can still get..somewhere..? (Assuming the box will look the same...but will have to look closely for the word REALmyst.

realMYST is still around. You can find it on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004ZC7H/ref=ase_cyaninc/102-3438602-2754547?v=glance&s=videogames). I ordered my copy direct from Cyan's homepage, but I'm not sure if you can still do that or not.

Anyone else find it ironic that we're talking about realMYST in a thread on the Revelation boards about how Myst IV will not be talked about in Uru forums?

Cheers,

Hi everyone ... * ahem * sorry I brought it up ... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

&lt; http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif Note to DonnaDune re: RealMyst ... I got mine off of eBay ... plus it has an extra age (Rime) not in the original Myst game&gt;

Now about Myst IV, having spent an hour perusing a few sites, I can only say ... September?! We have to wait until September?!! AHGGH!!

Actually, I LOVED the official site, completed the little puzzle for the prizes &lt;guess who's now got a spiffy new wallpaper? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif &gt;, watched the video - a few times, played around with the interactive image - VERY cool, and listened to the little looping music clip - which is hauntingly beautiful. Just seems a shame that there aren't a FEW more screen shots &lt;nudge, nudge to UbiSoft http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif &gt;.

September you say? Drat ... it seems so far away ... &lt;scuffing toe in dirt&gt;,

LOl Tocirpa I think last night I lost count of how many times I watched the trailer, it was just so cool to finally see it. I'm sure I'll be watching it again and again.

I think as well when momemtum begins to build up around the game there will be more screenshots, press releases, and maybe even a longer trailer http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I can but hope http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Yeah, the trailer was awesome.

And Uru was the (good) smack in the face for me. I had always been a fan of the Myst games, but then my friend said, "Hey, play URU." So I did. Then, I went out and bought the 10th Anniversary Edition and Uru, and I'm reading the books. I'm nuts about it! And now, I can't wait until MYST IV!!

This may be The Year of Myst, but you know what would complete TYOM?

Tocirpa,

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I was trying to keep my obsessive behavior to myself. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I spent ages moving through that interactive screen shot (Ubi it NEEDS to be bigger), clicking on the 3 things that it would let me, panning to the left or right to spin to the rest of it. Just amazing! I have watched and rewatched that trailer, couldn't guess how many times. And woe be to the family member within earshot. "hey, come here you've got to see this" was heard for an hour in this house when I was playing with the interactive screen shot on the site and figuring out the little puzzle. Everyone was expected to drop everything and "come have a look". Funny thing ... eventually everyone had someplace "else" to be. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

And good GOSH I hope they put up more screen shots and wallpapers, and an extended trailer wouldn't hurt either. Hopefully as we get closer to the release date they will, gotta' keep us drooling, ya know. Not too sure about another top ten though ... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

You know, i think im playing the myst games for the wrong reason. I dont particularly enjoy the puzzles, i follow the storyline a little (been a long time since i read the books), but mostly i play for the stunning ages and the mystique of it all. So im a bit weird. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Cyan labels you a "tourist". http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif No, really, take a look at From Myst to Riven. They sort Myst players into tourists and gamers. Tourists are mostly there for the sights, solving the occasional puzzle or two on occasion in order to move on, while gamers are mostly there to solve puzzles. According to them, Myst was more gamer-oriented, while Riven was designed for both.

Tourists also buy shirts that say "My mom and dad went to Myst and all I got was this stupid T-shirt."

Hi,
Games should be played the way you want to play them. I'm not particularly into the puzzles myself, but I really like exploring the worlds and advancing the story. Wolf52371, I think there are a many, many people like you who played the other games for the exact same reasons.


I'm looking foward to both games - Myst Revelation and the second Uru expansion pack. I don't think you can have too many games set in the Myst series game universe.

I have found that getting someone interested in a Myst game is very difficult if they have never played. But if you do get them involved, they usually end up being even more obsessed than you. It is not the the type of game that appeals superficially, but rather slowly drags you in and hooks you forever. When I first received Myst as a gift years ago, it sat on my shelf for awhile. Finally, in a state of boredom and with nothing else to do, I put it in to take a look. The rest is history. I was dazzled by the graphics, awed by the soundtrack and totally immersed in the story. I wanted to get my hands on anything Myst, the books were wonderful. Then Riven came along, it is still my favorite. By then cost was not an issue, I simply had to have it as soon as possible. The Myst genre is addictive, I still think in my heart of hearts that eventually URU Live would have succeeded. I remember when cell phones first came out, everyone laughed, but now, I don't know anyone who doesn't have one. I saw Live like that, something new and wonderful that everyone could be a part of, problem was, 'everyone' didn't even know about it. I think the key is advertising. I do hope they push Revelation and the URU chronicles. I think the more they reach, the bigger this fan base is going to get. And as fans, Myst has the most passionate I have ever seen.

Kuhlade, that was me with Myst, too. I'd heard of it but didn't really know all that much about it, I'd all but given up on games as they'd gotten so "same old ... same old". The first time I'd even found out about adventure games was when I'd first heard of Syberia - I remember thinking "what no running, jumping and shooting, nice idea but people won't buy that (thinking of kids, I guess). Not long after, I noticed Exile (the images on the box were so beautiful) and picked it up for my daughter for Christmas to go with her new PS2. It was the only game that she didn't open right away. Took some talking but, about a week later, she finally did and we were BOTH hooked. She's very quick figuring out puzzles, amazes me really, and we had a great time solving it together. After that I was tracking down anything Myst. It just grabs you - heart and soul. Love the characters, the evolving storyline, the puzzles and quests, and the graphics and music are outstanding. I'm working on my husband now to give them a try, but he's not an easy sell - he is a self proclaimed technophobe and is just only learning to use the computer now. Like pushing a big stubborn rock up a hill, really. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
