    The Surrealistic Adventure That Will Become Your World.

    Few are chosen. Fewer succeed. Journey now to an island world surrealistically tinged with mystery... where every vibrant rock, scrap of paper, and sound may hold vital clues to your unraveling a chilling tale of intrigue and injustice that defies all boundaries of time and space.

    L'aventure surréaliste qui devient la vôtre.

    Peu sont élus. Encore moins réussissent. Un voyage vous attend sur une île dans le monde surréaliste est teinté de mystère... Où la moindre pierre, le moindre bout de papier et le moindre son sont susceptibles de contenir des indices viteaux quis vous aideront à démêler un conte à vous donner des frissons, où intrigue et injustice dépassent les limites de temps et de l'espace.

    Das surrealistische Abenteuer, das Sie in seinen Bann zieht.

    Wenige sind auserwählt. Noch wenigeren ist Erfolg beschieden. Reisen Sie in eine surrealistische Inselwelt mit dem Hauch des Mysteriösen... eine Welt, in der jeder Felsen, jedes Stück Papier, jeder Ton einen Hinweis auf das Geheimnis einer Geschichte voller Intrigen und Unrecht bergen kann, die den Rahmen von Raum und Zeit sprengt. Nur ein scharfer Verstand und eine lebhafte Phantasie können den Wirren dieser Geschichte folgen und das Rätsel um den Verrat an Längst vergangenen Zeitaltern lösen.

From uk.playstation.com:
    Myst is a testament to the versatility of PlayStation - great games don't have to be based on frantic blasting action. This classic point-and-click adventure places the player on a fantasy island, part of a mysterious alternative reality that can only be escaped by solving mind-twisting puzzles and successfully exploring enigmatic locations.

    The ultimate objective is to discover the truth about Atrus, the author of Myst, the book of the title, and his imprisoned sons. Simply decide who is lying, who is lying, who is honest and free them . . .the mental challenge will offer the braincells a real workout.

    Myst is an entertaining gymnasium for the mind that can easily lead to obsession. Another title that leads PlayStation into new market sectors, away from the traditional heartlands of console gaming.
