A new version of Cyan Worlds classic point-and-click puzzle adventure will be coming to Quest and SteamVR headsets, the developer has announced. However, fans shouldn’t expect a simple HD re-release. According to Cyan, Myst VR will be a “re-imagining” with brand-new sound, art and interactions.
Myst won’t be Cyan’s first foray into VR. The company had already released VR puzzle-game Obduction in 2017 on all major VR platforms. According to the company, the Myst VR remake will build on this development experience; constructed “completely from the ground-up for Oculus Quest," Myst will be no simple VR-port.
Although the original was released almost thirty years ago, it retains a cult following that means many fans will still be very familiar with the 1993 game. Refresh options will be available to die hard fans, including a puzzle randomisation option which plans to allow players who have already completed the game to return without knowing exactly what to do at all points. However, the graphical redesign alone should be more than enough to encourage a return. Screenshots released to Road to VR look absolutely wonderful.
Quest fans should be excited, especially after the bombshell announcement last week. For more details about Myst VR as they are revealed, follow VRFinal.
