We’re very pleased to announce that Myst is part of an initial 14 video games selected by The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) for a new category of artwork in their collection. The initial group will be installed in the Museum’s Philip Johnson Galleries in March 2013. Here’s a link to MoMA’s announcement.
Myst seems to be on a Museum roll. In April Myst was included in an exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
And if you can’t make it to MoMA in March, you can enjoy Myst, realMyst, Riven, and Cyan’s other Apps wherever you are - on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch! Download now!
realMyst for iPad - Updated!

We’ve updated realMyst for iPad! Thanks for your feedback! Here’s what’s new in version 1.0.4…
- New, crisp, high-resolution text & images in all books and notes!
- Improved high-resolution textures in a few floor areas
- Improved user interface navigation behavior - tweaked for better response
- Fixed staircase area in Mechanical Age
- Fixed issue in the generator room on Myst Island
- Fixed the dock fore-chamber door on Myst Island
- Small loading improvements in some areas
- Fixed several other small bugs
- Adjusted iOS requirements for stability (iOS 4.3 or higher)
We’ve raised the requirements for realMyst to iOS 4.3 or higher. We highly recommend iOS 5.0 or higher. There are issues with the older iOS versions that are beyond our control. Upgrade to a newer iOS and problems solved!
We’ve heard your comments, and this update addresses many of them. We’re continuing to work on realMyst to address any remaining issues. Loading times are tricky because of the sheer size and scope of the realMyst Ages - but we’re working on it.
Get realMyst now!

Are you ready for real? This Thursday - June 14th is the day!
realMyst, the realtime version of Myst for the iPad 2 (and higher), will be available on the App Store on Thursday. realMyst has been a massive effort - with a combined team of over 60 people putting in years of work - and we’ve got to say it’s remarkable to behold.

But you’ll be able to find out for yourself in just a few days!
