Apple Gets Myst-ified
8:38 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Apple continues their coverage of the Mac gaming scene with another article today previewing Myst III: Exile. This third in the groundbreaking series will be release on May 7 by UbiSoft for both Mac and PC. In the article they talk a little with Dan Irish, producer for the game, as well as others from the Presto team (which took over for Cyan on the creation of Exile). The piece looks at how Exile will fit into the Myst mythology, also giving a brief history of the series as a sidenote. This is nice for those gamers that have yet to try out the original or Riven. Here's a clip with more on Exile:
If you’re concerned that you have to play the first two games before tackling this one, though, don’t worry: Presto made sure that anyone with no prior knowledge of Myst could pick up Exile and play it. Die-hard fans will appreciate the little touches, but this game truly is intended for anyone. Head over to Apple to check out the rest of the article. Also read through our own preview of Exile if you're getting excited about its release. To ensure your copy arrives on time, get in your pre-order now for either the normal game or the Collector's Edition.
Apple Previews Myst III: Exile
“Exile’s plot is like that of any good mystery novel,” explains DeMarle. “At first, you don’t know anything. But the more you investigate, the more you uncover pieces of the puzzle. In Exile, those pieces include all the historical information about Myst, Riven and the D’ni universe that you need to know in order to understand and eventually solve the conflict.
“So knowing nothing about the earlier games is not a problem. By the end of Exile, you’ll know enough.”
