And that's the Australian company, Village Roadshow Entertainment Group
, who now has the rights to classic 1993 PC adventure game Myst
. According to the announcement the studio will create projects in collaboration with Myst creators Rand and Ryan Miller, with plans to explore the universe across both film and television.
For those that need a refresher Myst is one of the best selling PC games of all time, and in 1993 presented a groundbreaking world to explore that took full advantage of the still new CD-ROM format. Which meant detailed art, animation, and full-motion video that wasn't possible just a few years prior to its release.
The game received a number of critically acclaimed sequels and was known for its mysterious world full of lore and history spanning many years. Although the first game was mostly ambiguous when it came to story, stuff like novels and lore exist fleshing out the world and its characters. Village has big plans for Myst too, with the official word being a "full-scale approach" to creating content.
