about to play this after loving the shit out of Myst: Masterpiece EditionWhat am I in for?
>>7718085A lot of disc switching and load times.
>>7718085play the soulful PS1 version
>>7718085Better world building but fucking horrendous puzzles, don't feel bad about using a guide when you get stuck, because it's worth the humiliation to experience the good stuff the game has to offer.
The number system is base 25. There I just gave you a clue on unraveling the game’s autism.
>>7718117>don't feel bad about using a guide when you get stuckI really really enjoyed having my notepad with Myst. Just felt like I was transported to another time and place. I had to look up a guide once but other than that it was right on point in difficulty. You're saying Riven is more esoteric or what?
>>7718153Don't listen to him. Riven is much more challenging than Myst, but the game is sure to give you enough clues to complete each puzzle. The main difference that makes Riven more challenging is that while the ages of Myst were all self contained, Riven allows the player to travel between islands freely, and often the clues to solve a puzzle on one island is found on another. If you ever get stuck on a puzzle it's good to go to another island and investigate something else.
>>7718250Sounds a little ambitious but good to know.
>>7718250>Riven allows the player to travel between islands freely, and often the clues to solve a puzzle on one island is found on another.that sucks, I like self-contained puzzles. knowing that I'll have to fuck off to the other side of the world to find something necessary for another puzzle blows ass. then it's not about solving puzzles but about treasure hunting.
>>7718125Ackshully it's base 5 with the second digit rotated 90 degrees and superimposed on the first. Don't spoil that shit though, that was one of my favorite puzzles.
>>7718098You mean the version that required five disks, had slower animations, and very long loading times?
>>7718982CD version is unplayable
Check out a WIP called Neyyah
I've never played Myst, what version should I play?myst: masterpiece edition, realmyst or Myst VR?From what I understand Myst: masterpiece edition is just the original done better, realmyst is a remake from the 90s and the VR myst is a new remake. This will be my first time and I just want the best experience.
>>7719776OP here. Maybe I played RealMyst then because it was fully 3D and interactive. Definitely helped for someone doesn't really like the point and click tediousness.BUT the graphics are so much more soulful in the original it's not even close.
>>7719776Play the original
>>7719725Looks interesting. Just finished Quern and really liked it. Always looking for more Mystemups, especially ones with interesting architecture.
>>7720531The Room series is a more puzzle oriented mystlike, worldbuilding isn't as prevalent in the series but the puzzles are fun and give off a myst vibe. Would also recommended Obduction, it's made by the same people that made myst.
