Mythical Adventure title Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis due out Winter 2020

Last month, we reported that Cyan Worlds' classic point-and-click puzzle adventure Myst would be returning to Quest and SteamVR, re-imagined in virtual reality. Myst VR, however, does not yet have a set release date.

So while you wait, you'll be pleased to hear that Orichalcum Pictures and VR Connection have announced Ryte: The Eye of Atlantic, a VR puzzle adventure game heavily inspired by Myst.

Ryte's inspiration goes far beyond Cyan Worlds' 1993 classic, though. The game also seeks inspiration from ancient myth, archaeological history and the ancient Greek and Egyptian civilisations.

The President of Orichalcum Pictures, Clovis Rossillon, claimed in a statement that Ryte hopes to appeal to "fans of classic graphic adventure games like Myst" as well as "history buffs who appreciate authenticity."

"We are working to ensure our vision of this mythical civilisation is just as entertaining to play as it is true-to-life," the statement explains.

In Ryte, Players will enter the world of Plato's Atlantis. Here, they will explore, solve puzzles and use the environment to unravel the mysteries of the famous lost city.

Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis will release for PC virtual reality (VR) headsets later this year where it will support Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Valve Index headsets.

In the meantime, why not check out the latest games hitting PSVR next week?
