I'm trying to install Myst: Masterpiece Edition onto my new Imac with the latest OSX. It says I need Classic environment, which is no longer supported. Great. Is this great game a coaster now, or is there a way around this?

Sounds like it's very old, designed for Mac OS 9. Unfortunately, I don't believe you can play that on a modern Mac. Very similar to trying to play a Windows 98 game on a modern machine.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

You could also purchase an older used Mac that will run "Classic".
