An employee of Cyan Worlds (proprietors of the legendary Myst series of games
) has announced that they will be porting the original Myst
to the iPhone. Apparently it's an "outside-funded" project -- though who might be funding it isn't yet clear -- and is apparently proving to be an "interesting and fun" project with a small team of just three people. No word yet on how it might work (or work differently) from the original, but the classic puzzle/exploration of Myst
is good gaming no matter what platform you're playing it on.
Starting with the NES emulator, the iPhone was following the evolution
of gaming pretty well -- at least until the App Store started mixing things up a bit
. After Myst
, I think we're right around Wolfenstein
at this point -- those were available jailbroken
, but it's about time we get an FPS officially as well. Carmack, you interested?
