Myst 25th Anniversary Collection Kickstarter

Posted by Cyan, Inc. (Creator)

Hey Obduction Supporters!

We interrupt this Obduction Kickstarter with a special Myst Kickstarter announcement:

We don't mean to bother you, but just in case you haven't heard, Cyan just launched a special Kickstarter to celebrate Myst's 25th Anniversary. If you are a fan of Myst you do not want to miss this Kickstarter. It involves ALL the Myst games, a WORKING linking book, and Gehn's pen and inkwell. Head on over to the Myst Kickstarter to check it out.


Oh, you should know, the physical items (linking book, pen and inkwell) are ONLY available through this exclusive Kickstarter - they won't be sold later.

Don't miss out!

We now return you to your regularly schedule Kickstarter.

      Besides the tacky case, you forgot to mention the fact that the physical copy was supposed to be DRM free and it isn't.

      Out of all the wonders in the world Jason, this one is really easy for you to grasp. I believe in you buddy

    3. Matt EH on

      Jason go to Google and search for "boxed PC game" and look at the images. Then look up "Obduction Boxed Edition" on google and see the difference. It's not that hard to understand why we got ripped off.

    4. Jason Hunt on you're mad that you got a boxed copy of Obduction when you pledged for a boxed copy of Obduction?

      @Patrick Karjala I gave these jerks $1 for the Myst 25th Anniversary kickstarter. Why? Because when CYAN doesn't deliver on it's promises I want to be there in the comment section of the updates.

      Good Morning: Since Cyan blew past the $247,500 goal on virtually the first day (congrats!!), and will probably blow past $1,000,000 with ease, what about a stretch goal--updated Mac versions of all games? How much would it cost to create those? Thank you for your time.

      "25th Anniversary Collection box" ...or...a Cheap DVD Case ?

    8. William C. Strohm on

      Thought I already posted this here previously, but guess I did something wrong. Anyway, the old Mac versions of both Myst (Masterpiece) and Riven can be played under Mac OS 10.12.6 (at least) using the SCUMMVM app. It needs access to the Myst and/or Riven data files, which I provided from our Myst 10th Anniversary DVD. Opening SCUMMVM with either of the games in the optical drive will automatically install the data files and create new executables which run the games perfectly. Hopefully Cyan can coordinate with SCUMMVM (or some other virtual machine builders) to get the 25th Anniversary on to a Mac-playable software app.

      No support for the original Myst platform, unfortunately. I have been disappointed by the new Cyan which doesn’t believe in Macs.

      The Kickstarter specifies Windows 10 in the pledges, and I've often seen this refer to games that ONLY work on Windows 10. Will it work on Windows 7 as well?

      I skip this kickstarter because I have all myst games already. But when Cyan decides to start a kickstarter for Firmament I will certainly back this project albeit I don't have a VR device.

      I wish I could justify the expense of backing this to get the linking book packaging, but considering that I already have all these games AND a Windows XP machine to run them all on, I can't see spending $100 just for the linking book packaging (and the digital only tier is totally unappealing, as I know I'll be able to get those later MUCH cheaper if I'm patient). I was never going to be able to spring for the version with the LCD screen. If only there was a much lower pledge tier for JUST the packaging...

    13. Emanuel Blume on

      I played the original Myst when it came out, and it pretty much made me the person I am today. Myst and Riven are the greatest gaming experiences of my life, so my heart skipped a beat when I read about the Anniversary release. Fantastic! Then I read that it's going to be Windows-only and my heart broke. How can you celebrate 25th anniversary and leave out us who actually has been with you these entire 25 years? It breaks my heart, but I won't fund another Cyan game that I cannot play…

    14. Ken Kopin on

      ...unless we decide to use your money for something else that we kept secret from you, fail at that, then come running back to Kickstarter with our tail between our legs. - Obduction ended up being a great game, but that doesn't mean all is forgiven.

    15. Overmann on

      I find it odd that you would run a Kickstarter for physical item after having completely botched Obduction's collector items. Why would I trust you to do it right this time?

      I have one more question about localization! Myst 3 and 4 had an awesome official Russian localization. Will we see it on GOG? Please add Russian localization on GOG. :)

      Dear Cyan Team! What about additional digital stuff? Will the Collector's Edition on GOG include additional materials for each game? I would like to see something like that:

      - Artbooks for each game.
      - Soundtrack for each game.
      - Updated beautiful and stylish PDF manuals and some PDF's with secrets/hints.

      I'm READY TO PAY GOOD MONEY for additional stuff! Thanks! :)

      Hi! This is one of the GREATEST news for me in 2018. :)

      The GOOD thing is that all games will be available on GOG!

      The BAD thing is that these games still has no Linux version.

      As a Mac user I can't really get involved..But for a future project I would definitely back a Fourth Myst book.The first 3 are treasured possessions that I have re read several times.

    20. DeeZaster on

      Yeah I'm still pissed at Cyan for NOT sending me my Golf Disc SIGNED and never getting back to me about it after promising you would (even after multiple requests for you to). I said to friends I won't support your next future game but this is MYST and it would hurt even more not having this is my large Myst collection.

    21. Patrick Karjala on

      @Matt EH, looks like you backed the 25th Anniversary Kickstarter anyway in spite of your complaints...

    22. Patrick Karjala on

      As has been noted extensively on the 25th Anniversary Kickstarter, it is for Windows only at this time.

      How about you fulfill the backers who gave you $75+ for Obduction for a "Special Boxed Edition" first? All I received was a cardboard slip over a plastic DVD case!

      Will this anniversary version run on a Mac? Obduction was a misery, so am hesitant to sign up for this one if it will be primarily Win. A Mac version on the App store would be ideal. (I never could get a working copy of Obduction)

      By the time Myst was ready, it would no longer run on my older MacBook Pro running 10.11.6. I was so disappointed but was told SORRY! Needless to say, watch out for this and make sure you don't get burned....

    27. Manoël Trapier on

      My original Mac version of Myst approve that!
