Myst Island is being recast in 3D for the Oculus Rift
Janill Gilbert stashed this in Games
“As soon as I heard about the Oculus Rift, this game franchise came to my mind,” writes IGameArt. “How amazing would it be if I could actually ‘link’ to the ages of Myst, exploring them and feeling the way I imagine the stranger who came across those mystical books must have felt the moment he touched the linking page and was sucked into a new world?”
“That is Myst Island, granted, it doesn’t look quite right,” he says. “It's considerably more run down. The major elements are all there, the terrain, the architecture, but the flora is decrepid.
“The goal of this project is to give that Island a facelift, and on top of that, to bring it to the next generation in terms of visual fidelity. I want you to be able to walk around Myst as it was when Sirrus and Achenar were children. Blue skies, birds chirping, buildings clean and new, fish swimming on the shore near the dock.”
There are so many worlds to explore...
