References to the game
The game played an important role in Der Mann von der Botschaft
, a German movie produced in 2006 (US festival title: The Man from the Embassy
). The movie is about a German ambassador in Tbilisi, Georgia, who leads a very isolated life, finding his only retreat in playing this game every evening. When he takes in a 12 year old refugee girl, they use exploring Myst IV: Revelation
as a way of connecting and getting to know each other.
The gameplay is identical for both platforms, but some enhancements have been made for the console version: improved menus to facilitate navigation, more accessible Help Map System, faster one-click access interface and an improved Zip Mode.
