Worn books, hidden paths, striking vistas, and displaced machinery- an accumulation of images from, inspired by, and relevant to the ages of Myst.

I haven’t posted sexy old books in a while, let’s fix that.

This looks straight out of Riven to me. Anyone else agree? Or even know what I’m talking about?
Did I just show my age?

Nice pic! Considering that my first thought was “Hey, nice Survey Island screenshot, I don’t remember that angle”, I’d say that yes, agreed. Very much agreed.

…now I want to make a speedrun to it and see how far I get before I’m stuck because I try to solve puzzles by memory instead of looking at what’s actually on screen.

This definitely belongs on Mystic Places.  Nice find!

Thanks for all the kind words, guys!  I had absolutely no idea that I made it onto the Tumblr Radar until I noticed my message box was swamped.
