We don’t at all times duvet Kickstarters … however, once we do, they’re Kickstarters for the best PC video games ever made. This time, developer Cyan Worlds took to the crowdfunding carrier to finish the Myst sequence of journey video games on Home windows 10 in a posh collector’s version.
Whilst the mission has already been absolutely funded via greater than $100,000 on the time of writing, Cyan Worlds hopes that you simply’ll again the mission with $99 (about £69, AU$129) or extra. Doing so gets you all seven of the Myst video games in combination in a 25th anniversary collector’s version field that replicates iconic items from the primary two video games: Myst: Masterpiece Version and Riven: The Sequel to Myst.
In particular, the ‘Myst E book Field’ seems like a e book ripped directly from the video games that each holds your DVD cases for the seven Myst video games and accommodates a secret compartment.
From there, a couple of extra tiers of donation come with extra iconic souvenirs from the video games, like a running, beetle-styled inkwell and felt-tipped pen, in addition to thought artwork advanced for the video games.
The Mysts of time
On the other hand, it will have to be famous that 5 of the seven video games are already to be had thru unfashionable PC sport store GOG as Home windows 10 downloads, and feature been for a while. This mission will see Cyan Worlds unlock the remainder two video games – Myst III: Exile and Myst IV: Revelation – via August, as in line with the Kickstarter web page. You’ll order all seven now for $49 (about £39, AU$69) thru Kickstarter, or wait till August to look how the remainder two video games shall be for my part priced.
After all, the developer used to be prepared to deal with the elephant within the room: ‘what about Mac?’ Unfortunately, understanding that the unique Myst used to be launched on Mac first, ahead of turning into the best-selling PC sport of the 20th century, Cyan Worlds claims that to care for a few of these video games on macOS calls for re-writing them totally.
This selection may no longer also be imaginable for the Myst video games advanced via 3rd events. Regardless, Cyan Worlds claims to be running on it in each cases.
At any fee, nostalgia-starved, long-time PC avid gamers are most probably squealing with glee on the information, and with just right explanation why: the best-selling PC sport of all time (ahead of The Sims) is set to be entire on nowadays’s computer systems.
