As far as PC games are concerned, Myst has to be one of the more classic, if not legendary titles around. Many a PC gamer from back in the day probably had at one point in time played it or owned it and over the years, we’ve seen it being re-released on other platforms like the Nintendo 3DS and Android.

Unsurprisingly given how old the game is, playing it on more modern computers isn’t exactly the most ideal situation, which is why developer Cyan Worlds has announced (via Game Informer) their plans to re-release the entire franchise on the PC later this year in celebration of the game’s 25th anniversary.

“Over the last few years we’ve been working to procure the rights to make all of the Myst games available. As an indie developer, resources are limited for development, and acquiring rights isn’t always an option. But we managed to finally talk to all the right people and departments and put some funding together to try to make it happen. With agreements in place, we’re happy to announce that we’ll be releasing updated (for Windows 10) versions of all the Myst games later this year!”

In addition to this, the developer also announced that there are plans to create a limited edition physical version of the game for collectors where it will come with a “cool artifact”. No word on a release date just yet, so we’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled.
