The original publisher of household names such as Myst, Prince of Persia and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego is donating its software library and corporate records to the museum known as the home of the National Toy Hall of Fame.
Twenty years ago, if you were getting a computer, you were getting one with a newfangled CD-ROM drive. And you were getting a game to justify it. That game was probably Myst. And if that wasn't the case for you, it was for your mom or grandfather or cousin. Like few games before or since, Myst was ubiquitous.
The fine folks at Lore In A Minute have tackled the seminal puzzle game Myst, which you may recall actually features some remarkably convoluted backstory. I keep meaning to replay this game...
It's hard work, solving puzzles. Sometimes, a gal or guy might get hungry.

Puzzling adventure game Myst, the best way to show off your bad-ass new CD-ROM drive in 1993, may be the next video game to get a big screen adaptation.

Cyan World's classic adventure game is finally coming to North American PlayStation Portables this week, with Hoplite Research confirming a July 17th release of the game on the PlayStation Network.
The iPhone port of Myst has gone live. The game is priced at US$5.99, and the download size is extra large.
