We don't cover a lot of mobile content here, largely because it's an ecosystem unto itself and we'd almost need double the staff. But every now and then something pops up where both the traditional gaming landscape and mobile gaming cross paths, and in today's case that's news that a reimagined for mobile version of the classic PC game Myst is headed to iOS.
It should be noted this is a port of a previously-released version of the game on Mac which just so happened to with the Mac App Store Game of the Year award in 2021, so it's no slouch and already has successful Apple ties.
Here's some official info:
Visit the intriguing Myst Island, stunning and mysterious in equal measure. As you slowly uncover what has happened to it and how you fit among the pieces of a riveting grander puzzle, you’ll navigate beautiful, long-dormant locations known as “Ages.” Explore the deeper connections at play, discover a story of family heartbreak, and make choices that will affect both you and this surrealistic world.More and more games and apps on mobile are now reverting back to a more palatable "one-time purchase" model which is likely going to endear experiences like this more to weary consumers too long enslaved to ongoing and ever-escalating "in-app purchases" with seemingly no end.
We don't have a full release date for this yet but it's out this year in celebration of Myst's 30th anniversary.
