Point-and-click classic 'Myst' is getting a TV show and a new tie-in game

Need a shot of early-'90s nostalgia? The classic PC adventure game Myst is getting a TV adaptation. The game's creators at Cyan Worlds have signed a deal with Legendary TV and Digital Media (a branch of the film production company) and the show will apparently bring a tie-in game to go along with it, according to Deadline. The companion game sounds very much like it'd be appearing on tablets, considering Legendary cites a statistic that 70 percent of slate owners use their device while watching TV "at least several times" per week, something Cyan sees as a way to expand its interactive narrative. Variety points out that Legendary has yet to decide whether the show will be a traditional broadcast program or if it'll be a digital project (its movie based on the Dead Rising series is a Crackle exclusive).

This won't be the production house's first dalliance with gaming either: it's been working on movies based on Mass Effect and Warcraft for awhile. It's worth noting that neither of those have actually seen the light of day yet despite being in the works for what seems like forever -- when the Myst project could actually surface is any Stranger's guess.
