Cyan, the developer of the classic Myst, has released an enhanced anniversary version of the 3D restoration project RealMyst, which first appeared in 2000.

The puzzle graphic-adventure game, Myst, launched back in 1993. RealMyst, which is available on Steam for $5 (and iOS for $7), enabled players to tour the game as they pleased and explore its depths in full 3D. It also included the original game and introduced a fifth "age," the Rime Age, which provided more a conclusion.

Now, RealMyst: Masterpiece Edition is an updated version of RealMyst for PC and Mac that offers a way to celebrate these past 20 years since release. Cyan redesigned the interface and enhanced the enironments.

Players can also navigate using traditional point-and-click controls — if the real time is too overwhelming or for nostalgia — and can switch to old Myst images (in Classic mode) by holding down the Shift key.

The release also includes a bookmark feature to save and restore progress, auto-saving, and a hint guide for when you're stumped on puzzles.
