“A Brief History of .. Myst” -- that boxed game in the 1990s

 

my set 2017

 

Ludodrome presents “A Brief History of .. Myst” (42 min, 2015).

Remember the boxed computer games “Myst” and “Riven” that would appear ,say, in the Mall of America in the late 1990s?  Ever wonder what scenery gretted you in these early computer games?

The games had their origins in the “card stack” concept of early MacIntosh graphics of the80s and were evolved by the Miller brothers.

Each attraction or community in the Myst world is unlocked by finding and reading a “book”.
