How many times has the game been remade/ported now?

Postby Jamie Marchant » Sun Feb 16, 2014 7:59 pm

So how many times has Myst been remade/ported now? :lol:. We have:
Myst( 256 colours) [PC + Mac]
Myst Masterpiece edition(16-bit) [PC and Mac]
Myst for consoles of the day(Sega, Sony and one others)
RealMyst(which introduced Rime) [PC and Mac]
Myst for the DS(I've heard you should avoid this), it does have a 2D version of Rime though.
Myst for the 3DS(which I've heard is a port of the DS version and is limited to 2D)
Myst for iPhone
Myst for PSP
Myst for Palm Pilot
RealMyst for the iPad
and now.... RealMyst Masterpiece Edition[PC and Mac]
Am I missing something?

EDIT: Added a few. Also I'm owning counting rerealses where re-programming was needed, not all the republications. .

Uru (Live) has been re-released countless times... although that wasn't really remaking like the other games.

URU was not remade as many times as Myst.

Oh, I was assuming Mac was not on the list because it was the original (i.e. the "make", not the "remake").

While digging around for some more info, I saw some sites distinguish between the term "port" (getting the original game running on other systems), and "remake" (changing/updating the game). I'm not so picky, but you might take a look at the Myst page on About.com's Classic Video Games section. It seems to have a few that you missed.

FWIW Mac versions were available for all Myst flavors (original, Masterpiece Edition, Real Myst and realMyst:Masterpiece Edition).

Ok I think I've 'fixed' the issues now.

I would love to see Myst on Wii U and definitely remake on the 3ds, I have my own ideas on how they can be utilized to.
