The original Myst is coming to VR – The Verge

Myst creator Cyan Worlds is adapting its classic adventure game to virtual reality. Facebook and Cyan announced that Myst will get a VR remake for the Oculus Quest later this year, launching after the release of the upcoming Oculus Quest 2 headset.

The VR version of Myst is described as a reimagining of the 1993 original, which was created using Apples HyperCard software. It includes new art, audio, and interactions, plus a randomized puzzle option for an added challenge. A trailer offers a broad reminder of what Myst is about, but it doesnt show us what the game will actually look like or how it will play.

Cyan has already made a foray into VR. Obduction was a spiritual successor to Myst that optionally supported virtual reality. It was released in 2016 alongside the very first current-generation headsets, and while it had a gorgeous design and clever puzzles, Cyan was still trying to balance making a non-VR game that worked in VR. That compromise doesnt exist with Mysts remake, and Cyan can draw on a wider set of conventions for VR puzzle games.
