PRESS RELEASE: Cyan Reveals Development of Myst for VR
SPOKANE, Washington, September 16th, 2020
Cyan, the indie studio that created beloved classics Myst and Riven, has reimagined Myst and created the version fans have been asking for since Unreal Engine and VR went mainstream. It’s Myst – in a whole new dimension!
This definitive version is built from the ground up to play in either VR or flatscreen PC. It will be released first as a VR-Only title on the Oculus Quest Platform, with the PC version – including 2D and support for additional VR hardware – to follow at a later date.
“We’ve been waiting for the stars to align to create a VR version of Myst – and I’m so excited to announce that alignment! Myst has always been about creating a world to lose yourself in, and VR takes the Myst experience to an entirely new level. It’s an almost magical experience for me, after so many years, to wander around the Ages of Myst and truly feel transported! We hope it will be for you, too.”
~Rand Miller, CEO
Myst made its debut in 1993 to critical and popular acclaim and went on to become the best-selling PC game of the 20th century.
