Myst developed by Robyn and Rand Miller of Cyan and published by Broderbund, was a first-person graphic adventure game. It was released for the Macintosh personal computer in 1993. In the game, players travel via a special book to the island of Myst where they solve puzzles, and travel to four other worlds, known as Ages. Players can interact with specific objects on some screens by clicking or dragging them and by clicking on locations shown on the screen when the scene then crossfades into a new area. Myst has an optional "Zip" feature to assist in rapidly crossing areas already explored, which provides rapid travel, but can also cause important items and clues to missed. Journal pages when read provide background. The game is completed, when the island of Myst is fully explored.
The game was developed on Apple Macintosh Quadras and was essentially a large colour Hypercard stack, with each card consisting of a three dimensional rendered screen.
