Here's a sample from the interview itself:
[WorthPlaying] - Myst is a very respected and successful series. What are the reasons of this success?Other topics include why the game was done in 640X480, how the story has evolved, and what the future may hold for similar games. For the full interview, be sure to check it out at WorthPlaying.
WorthPlaying - Presto Studios Interview
[Presto] - Speaking as someone in the industry, but not the creator of MYST, I donít presume to know exactly why MYST is such a phenomenon. But I can identify certain strengths in the product that, when combined with the state of the industry in 1993, promoted mass popularity. First and foremost are the beautiful, safe, surreal worlds. People love to see new places, especially ones that are eerily familiar. MYST took the player to these locals, and let them explore at their own leisure, certainly a departure from most games.
