Update on Mac realMYST
1:03 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
Many IMG readers have requested an update on the progress of the Mac OS version of realMYST, the true-3D "remix" of the original graphic adventure title from Cyan. Our contact at Cyan had both good and bad news to share. The good news is that after many months of waiting (the PC version of this title went gold in October 2000) the Mac OS version of realMYST is complete and ready to publish.
Unfortunately, there is also bad news. Ubi Soft has become the publisher of this title in the meantime, and they may hold the Mac realMYST release so that it does not conflict with the launch of Myst III: Exile, which is due the first weeks of May. As Mac gamers have been eagerly awaiting realMYST for quite some time, we're sure Ubi Soft will get this one out the door as soon as Exile hits the streets.

For those who haven't been following the progress of this title, realMYST is a true-3D remake of the original MYST, creating the interactive, seamless 3D world that Cyan originally envisioned for the game but was unable to create with 1992 technology. Now that 3D hardware and CPUs have caught up with the Miller brothers' vision, they were able to bring the classic adventure into a photorealistic 3D world, rendered in realtime -- complete with animation, interactivity and of course their trademark sound and atmosphere. For a comprehensive look at the title follow our link to a list of past IMG articles on the subject. Now that Mac realMYST is complete, you can be sure we'll bring you the news of its publication the instant it is released.
