Developer and publisher Cyan Worlds has licensed the rights to produce a feature film based on the coveted Myst franchise. Myst began in 1993; the adventure games put the player in the role of an explorer with the ability to travel between worlds.
Roserock Films and Gran Via Productions will oversee the project; the Mysteria Film Group will develop. Mysteria says it will be heavily based on the franchise novels -- published during the development of first sequel Riven -- which provide background on the D'ni, the civilization which could create infinite worlds and were eventually intruded upon by a woman from Earth.
"Our aim with this project is to stretch the genres it operates within, much like the source material did," Mysteria's Adrian Vanderbosch said. "It is such an innovative property and the best service we can do to it is to maintain that spirit. By utilizing the novels as our primary source, we have the opportunity to offer audiences the essence of Myst without being limited only to the famous island of the first game."
Sounds like it's in good hands.
The Myst series has seen a resurgence as of late, the hits appearing on GOG.com for newer operating systems and the online game Uru Live put back in action.
