Arguably the definitive edition of one of the most important video games ever released, whose quiet puzzle-solving and slow exploration works perfectly in VR.

More than 25 years later, Myst remains iconic. In virtual reality, the puzzle box still confounds, even as it shows its age.

Myst in VR is an enjoyable and challenging experience that demonstrates how little this classic from nearly 30 years ago has aged. Virtual reality certainly adds a lot, but perhaps it could have been implemented better.

Myst is a title deeply dropped in its time. In the 1990s the concept of tutorials was almost unknown, as was the idea of a video walkthrough: at most you could find some textual guide in the reference magazines, but more often it was necessary to hope that some friends had discovered by the back ways how to solve that particularly difficult puzzle. The market wasn't inundated with the amount of video games now, and we users had a different predisposition to spend days and days trying to progress to trialand error , trying to click on every point of interest until something was unlocked. This long premise seems fundamental to me to frame the type of experience that Myst offers us, since its incipit.

Myst returns in 2020 as a remake entirely designed with virtual reality in mind. It is still impossible not to see here an opportunistic act on the part of Cyan Worlds, probably in need of finances, as the game seems to have been made by an bis team, while the bulk of the studio is working on its other projects, in particular Firmament. Myst 2020 on Oculus Quest is not a bad game but even if it means converting it into virtual reality, we would have liked more meticulous work, especially on the soundtrack which seems simply copied and pasted from the original work.
