Myst III: Exile Preview
9:32 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

GameSpot UK has previewed this third installment in the Myst series, entitled Myst III: Exile. While the game is actually being made by Presto Studios, the original makers Cyan are watching the game's development closely. Here's an excerpt from the preview describing the visual style of this sequel:

Visually, the game is very close to Myst and Riven in terms of style, with fabulous landscapes rendered in 3D Studio Max. However, Presto has gone one step further with the technology. While movement is still node based rather than free scrolling, you can now pan around each location and look up and down. To achieve this, the graphic artists rendered a large landscape and then mapped it onto the inside of a cube with you at its centre. This gives you the illusion of being completely surrounded by the Myst world and makes more interesting puzzles possible. This isn't an entirely new development, since Presto used the same system in the last Journeyman Project game. However, in that game, the graphics lost resolution when you panned around, whereas with Myst III, they remain crisp and clear.
It sounds like fans of both the Journeyman Project series and the Myst series certainly have a game to look forward to. Be sure to check out the preview for more details.

Presto has also recently released more information on this game in progress. Their August issue of Myst III: Behind the Scenes talks about working on the live-action footage for the game, featuring interviews with president Michel Kripaplani as well as some of the actors from the game. Myst III: Exile is set to be released this Spring for both Mac and PC.
