Myst is a point-and-click PC adventure game developed by Cyan Worlds and first published in 1995 by Broderbund. It spawned four sequels, a remake, and a pseudo-MMO that failed and was then resurrected.

The original game was one of the first titles to be released on the then-fledgling CD-ROM format, and is credited with helping to jump-start adoption of it. To this day it remains one of the best-selling PC games of all time.


the story involves "the stranger" who you play throughout the game. the story is that you come across a box that fell from the sky, picking it up you see the black letters "MYST". you open the book to the back page and see a moving picture showing a flyby of an island that seems to be in an endless ocean. the stranger touches the picture in awe as everything fades away. the next thing you see is the island in the picture. you then realize you just transported to that island.
