Myst is being revitalized as a TV series with its own tie-in game

Fan-favorite point-and-click adventure game Myst is poised for a return, but not in the way that you’d expect.


Variety has reported that creators Rand and Robyn Miller have signed a deal with Legendary Entertainment to bring Myst to the small screen as a TV series. There’s also talks of a tie-in game as well.

The rebirth of the series, which launched back in 1993 and followed “The Stranger,” who players guided through a mysterious island, is making a comeback in the form of “transmedia” efforts such as a new game and spin-off for tablet users to create a cohesive whole.

There aren’t any details just yet regarding how the series will be released, or who will star in it, but we’ll keep you updated as further details arise.
