Myst VR announced

The reimagined music and narration is just perfect, IMO.
That brings up an interesting note: this is not a 1:1 remake in VR. You can see some new designs in the screenshots.
I am totally on board with this--some of the art design isn't as quite grounded in reality as in the later games, and so much of the Myst universe was only established in the later games and books. I can see how this might piss off some purists, though.
My only qualm is this better not be a Quest exclusive. I plan on getting an Index when Firmament releases and I refuse to buy anything Facebook-owned. I worry because this is tied into other Oculus announcements today, and it's clear Facebook gave them a boatload of money to make this.
(Oh, and VR is optional...there will be a flat version, too.)

I just got confirmation that it's not a Quest exclusive, but it is coming to the Quest first. Whew.
