realMyst Masterpiece Edition On Switch

Return to Myst Island in the Switch reworking - realMyst Masterpiece Edition, out now.

Anyone who remembers when CD-ROM games were revolutionary, will recall the classic Myst, out now on Switch in the form of realMyst Masterpiece Edition.

The original Myst was the best-selling PC game of the 20th century, and back in the day, it was a crystal ball for what could happen in the gaming world.

Cyan Worlds Inc. was the development team behind Myst, and they’ve subsequently joined forces with Skymap Games to create realMyst Masterpiece Edition for the Nintendo Switch.

So many of us here at Cyan are huge, long-time fans of Nintendo, and we appreciate Skymap’s expert help in bringing realMyst to the Nintendo Switch. The flexibility of the Nintendo Switch is really exciting – allowing the surreal environments of Myst to be experienced in whatever environment you find yourself.

Rand Miller, CEO Cyan

Myst was a game where you explored a mysterious island, solving a series of puzzles in first-person that spawned many similar titles, and the model for a lot of the same type of puzzle games we see to this day.

realMyst Masterpiece Edition revisits Myst Island as you choose your path around this infamous isle, which later spawned the sequel Riven.

As there’s a lack of reliable trailers online, here’s another quote!

It’s an honor to be trusted by our partners at Cyan with a property as important as Myst. The Skymap team is ecstatic that for many players, this will be a return to such a beloved game; and for others, their first time linking to a world that was so personally important to us.

Neal Laurenza, Managing Director of Skymap Games
