Mac realMYST Update
12:29 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

We recently spoke with Cyan about their remake of the classic adventure title Myst with a
real-time 3D engine, realMYST. We wanted to know if they had any more
info on the status of the Mac version and its progress. The PC version just
began shipping a short time ago, and many Mac Myst fans are anxious to get their
hands on the title. We also asked if there were any plans for a possible
remake of Riven as well. Here's what Cyan's Jeff Oswalt had to say:

We hope to have the Mac version completed by the end of the year but I'm not sure when it will hit the shelves. That would be a Mattel decision.

I think most of what's left are the finishing touches and then some Q&A.

The engine we got through the acquisition of HeadSpin Technologies. We won't
be making a realRiven and will not be licensing out the engine either. We
are currently using it to develop our next project code named Mudpie.

We've contacted Mattel and will bring you any further news on that front as we
get it. It's interesting to hear the same engine will be used for Mudpie, their
highly-secretive new game coming out a bit further down the road. If nothing
else, it's good to hear they'll already be working with a Mac-compatible 3D
engine, which looks amazing from the screen shots and movies we have seen.
