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

Production Stills for Myst III: Exile | Daniel Achterman

One of my coworkers at Microsoft shot me an e-mail last week saying “so I heard you like Myst,” and promptly sent me these reference photos he took while working on Myst III: Exile.  After a brief freakout, I got his permission to scan and post the entire set- we don’t often get to post exclusive content here at Mystic Places, so I’m pretty chuffed.

You can browse and download the entire high-res collection HERE!

Does it get more classic than Myst?



I remember this cover so damn fondly.

I’ve just started an in-character exploration blog for Myst Online: Uru Live. The first entry is up and you can read it HERE.If anyone here has a similar Myst or Uru blog let me know as I’d love to follow you back.

Shorah! While I haven’t done anything of the sort myself and I’m not sure how many active blogs one could find today, I can point you to the directory of this fine established tradition if you haven’t browsed it already! :)

Hey there! I’m actually keeping an in-character journal while playing through Uru, so you are among good and dorky company. :)I’m definitely planning on posting it to Mystic Places once it’s scanned and cleaned up- always exciting to see other fans doing the same!

Meet Sirrus ahem Cesario, my character for Light Grey Art Lab’s Great Personality show and dating sim!  He is a forceful, authoritative sunovabitch, and a not-so-subtle tribute to one of my most formative crushes.

The show opens on the 24th, just in time for Valentine’s Day, and the dating sim will be available for download as well!  Pretty damn cool.  The crew at LGAL know how to put together one hell of an art show.

Back from an extended-by-way-of-snowstorm trip to NYC, and thought it would be a good idea to reblog this on, y’know, my Myst blog!  The show opens this weekend, and the first game will be released as well- I can’t speak to when the game with Sirrus with this guy is gonna be released, but hopefully soon!  Then we can all seduce Sirrus.  Together.
