realMYST – Masterpiece Edition

My first time playing Myst, and it appears I’ve picked up the wrongest game in the series. In this re-imagining of the original 2D pre-rendered point-and-click saga, we’re dealing with a Unity port, featuring bad lighting, constant darkness, unintuitive puzzles and an all-round bad time. Life is short, and too short for this indeed.

I’ve been assured many times that the original would probably much better, even though I doubt my limited intelligence and/or patience would allow for something along the lines of enjoyment. I won’t say never though, and the “real” Myst is still on my wish list somewhere. I haven’t given up on the saga, just on this version. It was a nice idea, but not everyone’s cup of tea.
