A Message From Cyan

You are about to be drawn into an amazing alternative reality. The entire game was designed from the ground up to draw you in with little or no extraneous distractions on the screen to interfere with the feeling of being there. Myst in not linear, it's not flat, it's not shallow. This is the most depth, detail and reality you've ever experienced in a game.

Myst is real. And like real life, you don't die every five minutes. In fact you probably won't die at all. There are no dead-ends, you may hit a wall, but there is always a way over or around. Pay attention to detail and collect information, because those are the pieces of the puzzle that you'll use to uncover the secrets of Myst. The puzzles you encounter will be solved with logic and information -- information garnered either from Myst or from life itself. The key to Myst is to lose yourself in this fantastic virtual exploration, and act and react as if you were really there.
