Howdy Blockers!

Time for episode 29 of the podcast where we’re discussing the 1993 Cyan adventure/puzzle game, Myst.

As usual though, the news:

Disney and EA have entered an exclusive multi-year deal to develop a series of new Star Wars games.

Maxis has announced The Sims 4 and opened up registration for a mailing list.

Bethesda has announced a new Wolfenstein game taking place in an alternate version of the 60’s where the Nazis won the war.

We then get to the main topic, Myst. Gameplay, story and get a little deeper with tech focus and dev story.

Next time, I’ll be revisiting Peter Molyneux with 1997’s Dungeon Keeper.

  1. Absolutely loved this episode, one of the best of the podcast! About my email: in my defense, I was nine when the game was released, so I didn’t really have the patience and/or understanding to pick up on all the clues that would allow me to leave the island. 😉 I have since gone back and finished it (taking a whole bunch of notes just as you did), and I completely agree that it does hold up. It truly is a timeless classic.
    Also, I’m super thrilled that the next game you’ll cover is Dungeon Keeper. I was in the car at a red light, windows down, when I heard that, and went “woooohoo!” to the puzzlement of passing pedestrians. Will definitely be writing in, perhaps even a voice mail if I’m feeling brave enough. 🙂 Thanks for all your hard work!!
