Get ready Myst fans: the original point-and-click, twelve million selling, mystery-adventure title is headed straight for your DS, publisher Empire Interactive announced yesterday.
Not only will Myst DS fit neatly into the palm of your hands (as opposed to in the ginormous beige and flickering monitor it did when you first played the game back in ’95) but will also feature an entirely original score, digitally remastered audio and video and even an entirely new age to play through, dubbed the Rime Age. All this without having to strain your eyes against those nauseatingly grainy video clips in front of that old fossil of a PC!
Karim Farghaly, vice president of sales at Empire Interactive stated, "As one of the strongest video game franchises in history, with more than 12 million game sold them, we felt it was only natural to partner with Hoplite Research and Cyan Worlds to bring MYST to an innovative system like the DS. The DS addition to the MYST game library allows players to take advantage of the new features created exclusively for the DS, while still maintaining the integrity of this classic game, creating a refreshed, on-the-go adventure experience for players of all ages..."
The game’s classic tools for puzzle-solving and mystery-unlocking will also get…wait for it…retooled. Exclusive for the DS version of the game are a magnifying glass, notebook, map and a camera. In addition, gamers will be able to utilize the dual screen of the system to magnify objects on the bottom while retaining the main screen at the top.
Myst will be published by Empire Interactive and developed by Hoplight Research. Look for it in March of this year.
