GameSpy: What is the basic story behind Myst III?
Dan Irish: In Myst III: Exile, we're telling the tale of a bitter man whose homeworld was destroyed by Sirrus and Achenar, and who has been living on another age for 20 years. He returns to take revenge against Atrus and his family. The player is trapped in a mysterious age, and must explore the environment and navigate its puzzles to gradually uncover the mystery of this new adversary.
Myst III: Exile should be released early next year by Presto Studios and Cyan. A remake of the title that started it all, called Myst: Masterpiece Edition, has just been released for the Mac. If you are new to this series it would be a great introduction.
