Last year, Legendary TV & Digital Media made a deal with Cyan Worlds to develop a TV series and companion video game based on the popular PC franchise, MYST and the subsequent games. For years MYST was the best selling PC game ever until it was beat out in 2002 by the Sims.
Now, it seems the MYST tv show has a new home on Hulu. The team behind the project is producer Matt Tolmach (The Amazing Spider-Man) and writer Evan Daugherty (Divergent ).
Written by Daugherty, Myst blends elements of science fiction and fantasy. It will explore the origins of the island of Myst from the game where a man wakes up on a mystery island with absolutely no idea who he is, where is, or how he got there.
The games are incredible detailed and immersive. With puzzles inside puzzles and a rich history. Let us hope those qualities are not lost in the transition from interaction and passive watching.
