Finished the Myst series of PC games

Twenty years since I first played the PC game Myst I finally finished the fantastic series!

I still remember the experience of playing the first Myst, headphones on, totally immersed in another world, it was like no other game at that time and was probably the one that got me hooked on PC gaming.  This was a time of limited internet and no FAQs/cheats/walkthroughs - making the game a real challenge, writing notes as you explored and worked out the puzzles.  You felt like you were a part of the story and got a real sense of achievement when you came to the end.  Over the years I have played many computer games (mostly fantasy based RPGs and adventures) and the Myst series slotted in among them, Riven, Exile, Revelation, each time felt like coming home.  I recently played Uru (and Uru to D'ni) and felt like the story had lost it's way but followed it quickly with End Of Ages and was pleased that they managed to get the atmosphere right again and had a fitting end to this saga.

Sure there are many great PC games out there now, but if you have never experienced the worlds of Myst you really have missed out, not just on a piece of gaming history, (and amazing soundtracks including the talent of Peter Gabriel and Jack Wall), but on a journey you will never forget.

Moist Von Lipwig new to Discworld Miniatures

The latest sculpt from Kul Asyrk - made for MicroArt Studios as usual...

Moist Von Lipwig

I wonder if it will be out in time to coincide with Going Postal by Mob Films - soon to be aired on Sky in the UK?

It also looks like Kul Asyrk is working on Igneous the Troll and the Senior Wrangler, good to see the Discworld collection gradually expanding.
