    MYST and Riven coming to the Mac app store later this year
    I thought I would share this.

    I emailed Cyanworlds about a week ago asking if there were any plans to port MYST and Riven to the Mac App Store (not to be confused with the iOS store) to play on my desktop.

    This is what I wrote:

    Hello,

    I was curious if there were any plans to port MYST (or even better,
    RealMYST!) and Riven over to the Mac App Store. I own the games on DVD's but
    unfortunately, they won't install on OSX Lion due to the games not being
    Intel native. I'm glad they're available for iOS but I miss being able to
    play them on a nice, big monitor! Any response is much appreciated.

    Thanks so much

    and this is the response I received:

    Hello,

    We have had many requests to re-master Myst, Riven, and Myst V: End of Ages
    (we do not have the rights to Myst III: Exile or Myst IV: Revelation) for
    the Mac as well as for the newer Windows OS for the PC. We are planning on
    releasing versions of Myst (most likely realMYST) and Riven for the Intel
    Macs later in 2012 and we do hope to include Myst V at an even later date.
    We do not yet have an exact time-frame as to when this will be, but when the
    time comes we will make an announcement on the Cyan Worlds website.

    Thank you for your inquiry!

    I'm excited! These are some of my favorite games. Playing them again in a dimly lit room with nice speakers on a big monitor will be awesome!

    These are great, but with Baldur's Gate hitting the iPad, I would love for it to be on the Mac App store, and for the saved games to sync between via iCloud so that it can be played anywhere at anytime and you pick up where you left off. THAT would be just awesome.

    I look forward to ALL THREE of these games being ported to the Intel Macs - played Baldur's Gate in old version on Mac SE decades ago - loved it!
