MacPlay to Publish realMYST for OS X
10:11 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

MacPlay announced today that it has reached an agreement with Ubi Soft Entertainment to bring realMYST to the Macintosh. The Macintosh version has been in limbo ever since the PC version shipped over a year ago. But now, a publisher has finally been found in MacPlay.

Here's a snippet from the official press release:

realMYST is the Myst the Macintosh community has been waiting for. This final, director's cut of Myst is what the original creators always wanted to make, free from technological constraint.

realMYST uses a state-of-the-art real-time 3D graphics engine to present Myst as it was originally intended: a tale of mystery and intrigue, set in an immersive, dynamic world. Wide-open game play allows players to walk and look anywhere they choose in real-time with 360 degrees of freedom. Witness extraordinary 3D effects as day changes into night and weather changes from brilliant sun to dreary rain, creating an entirely new game experience.

“We are excited to finally bring realMYST to Mac OS X,” said Mark Cottam, President of MacPlay. “Myst debuted on the Macintosh in 1993 and Macintosh gamers were the first to experience the wonderful world of D'ni. realMYST will continue that tradition.”

“Ubi Soft is dedicated to continuing the legacy of the Myst franchise for the Macintosh audience,” said Jason Cohen, Vice President of Publishing for Ubi Soft Entertainment. “The recent release of Myst III and now realMYST on the Mac completes that library.”

realMYST is expected to ship in March 2002 with a suggested retail price of $29.99. As the game gets closer to shipping, be on the lookout for an extensive preview from IMG.
