    Apparently, Cyan Worlds, Inc., creators of the Myst series, has finally acquired the rights to Myst 3 and 4, and, for the 25th anniversary of Myst, they have launched a kickstarter to make all seven Myst games available to play on modern pc's for the first time. Backers will receive a download of all seven games, while higher tiers get physical copies in an actual Myst linking book... They are already well past their goal, and they are projecting having the games available on GOG sometime in September. Physical rewards are only available during the kickstarter, however, so if any of y'all are big Myst fans, check it out!

    Odd goal to go for but OK. Fairly modest goal I suppose for a team and a few months of work as well.

    It's 247,500 in dollars, but still... They explain they figured they would need 2,500 of the $99 backers to make it work (2,500 x $99 = $247,500)

    It appears to be a company (Cyan Worlds Inc.) but I wondered the same thing myself at first.

    quite bad, i mean they were some of my first childhood games.

    some real good brain teasers and really way ahead of their time!

    It is, of course, the company, headed by Rand Miller. Edited OP to reduce confusion with our esteemed moderator.

    As much as I love these games, they are showing their age, even the updates to the original (realMyst, Myst masterpiece) are pretty dated. Still fun, though, was just playing through Uru again last week.
