With a new report over at Deadline confirming that X-Men: First Class's Ashley Edward Miller has signed with Village Roadshow to write and develop a planned Myst adaptation. For those that remember the age of the CD-ROM you'll no doubt remember 1993's Myst - a groundbreaking and abstract adventure game that made full use of cutting edge (for the time) graphics.
Of course Myst looks incredibly dated today but its setting and mystery made it a hit, where it became the decade's best-selling PC game. Myst received a sequel in 1997 and other releases over the years, with this adaptation apparently looking to the original game and lore for inspiration. There are even talks of expanded universe stuff across movies and other media. Original creators, Rand Miller and Ryan Miller will serve as producers too.
Here's a full play-through of the original version (it has since been remastered a few times) via YouTuber The Adventure Gamer.
For more on Myst why not read this massive feature on the game I wrote for IGN as part of a yearlong series covering classic adventure games called A Year of Adventure.
