What is Myst?

Myst is a series of graphic adventure video games, developed by Cyan (now Cyan Worlds), and released between 1993 and 2005. The gameplay consists of interrelated puzzles, with clues revealing the background and history of the game world and the characters inhabiting it. Myst games take place in several self-contained mini-worlds ("Ages"), linked together through special books that allow the player to travel between them. Exploration and logical thinking are prime requirements to complete the game: Myst expects players to think and connect the dots by themselves, based on strategically placed pieces of information.
