Stiq Flicks – from film and video game industry freelance writer Kevin Kelly – examines video games and attempts to pair them with matching films. It’s like wine and cheese, but with more aliens.
Myst is out on the Nintendo 3DS this week, which now means that the title is available on every machine ever invented. Doubt us? If you’re wearing a Casio watch, hit FUNCTION and STOP/START at the same time, and Myst will launch. Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration, but not by much. Since the game came out on the Mac in 1993, it has since been ported to everything from the Atari Jaguar CD to the iPad.
Unfortunately, this port of the game is a bit strange as it places the action on the 3DS’ lower screen, with static images on the top screen. But despite the layout of the game, it’s still Myst in your pocket.
Regardless of where you’re playing it, Myst is still a great game, especially if you figure in the fantastic sequel it provided with Riven. It’s all about mystery, puzzles, intrigue, and murder. Just like David Fincher’s The Game.
