Remember early last month when we posted a gameplay video for Cyan's upcoming RealMyst? Well, they've since gone and released a second video, which is equally impressive.

Take a look:

RealMyst, in case this is the first time you've heard of it, is a remake of the original Myst. Only, instead of the whole game being pre rendered, it's rendered in real time, and allows you to have complete control over where you go and what you look at. This is especially crazy when you consider back when Myst was originally released, streaming the pre-rendered video off your CDROM drive was considered cutting edge. Now we're just rendering all that in real time on your phone.

We've still yet to get a release date more specific than "Spring 2012."

Thanks, @Vragal!

    !!!! Ohmygod, this is going to be so awesome!
    I've been a fan of Myst for as long as I can remember playing games. I guess Cyan just had to find another way for me to spend more money on yet another copy of the game. XD 
    I'm not complaining, at all.
    This is going to be awesome, and this news is totally a surprise for me. 😀

    Yes! I hope they do Riven too! This is awesome!

    Sadly "RealRiven" doesn't exist... RealMyst was around on PCs and Macs some time ago and served as a sort of proof-of-concept for the game engines behind Uru and Myst V, though in my opinion it outclassed both of those.

    In the video, when he gets to the stairs he stops - can you walk up that spiral staircase in real time?

      It’s been a while since I played RealMYST, but I’m pretty sure you can. You certainly end up at the top somehow, I remember that! And nothing was a “jump cut” so you either walked it or took an elevator.

        Yes, you can walk up the stairs in realtime. There is a guide that allows you to walk up the stairs without having to turn. However, you are still in total control.

        Cool! Good idea.

        Maybe this time I will solve the Rime Age. I never did before—and I refuse to seek help!
