Changing many people's life in the process..

Endless thanks, and congratulations, to all the Cyan peeps for that wonder of a creation, all those that followed, and those 20 amazing years!

Here's to 20 more years of fun and exploration! :)

Happy 20th, jumping on the bandwagon.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of Cyan Inc's best selling computer game, Myst. For many of us, Myst was more than a game. It was a world waiting to be explored, a story begging to be told, an adventure eager to happen. Many of us adopted this world as our own, embracing the surrealistic beauty and grandeur, the hidden secrets, and the horrifying history we uncovered. Many of us called its immersive environment home.

As a game, it was unprecedented. Released on CD on September 24, 1993, Myst was the best selling PC game until it was finally overtaken by the Sims in 2002. Its popularity caused sales of CD ROMs to increase dramatically. At the time, it did not fit into any existing game category, so it created a new genre. It was unparalleled in many ways.

Myst has since been updated as technology catches up to the vision Cyan had in the early 1990's. It was followed by four sequels, the MMOG Uru, and three novels. In 2000, the fan community was inspired to initiate an annual gathering, called Mysterium, which attracts fans from around the world and still continues today. Numerous artworks and other projects were inspired by the games and the company that created them.

The impact of the Myst world has been huge in our lives and in our hearts. Many of us are the richer for it. For all the work, life, and spirit which has gone into creating the Myst universe, we the fans thank all past and present Cyantists, builder of worlds. From the bottom of our hearts and souls, chev b'shemtee b'fahsee.

Thank you, Cyan for all these years of wonderful gameplay, the intricate puzzles, the beautiful graphics, and great stories. Thank you for creating the base on which this great community has been built.

Edit: I haven't seen this posted anywhere else, but The Cavern Today has a special pod cast out to mark the ocassion: TCT X: Myst 20th Anniversary Special - they each take a trip down memory lane that many of us can identify with. :)
