DescriptionUru: Ages Beyond Myst
continues the saga of the D'ni at a different point in their time line. In the first Myst
game, players met the sons of Atrus whose actions contributed to the demise of the D'ni Ages. In Uru
, players instead interact with Atrus' daughter, Yeesha, who sends them on a quest through the linking books.
As in the earlier games, players progress through exploration, finding clues, and solving puzzles.
Unlike previous games in the series, Uru
allows players to utilize both first- and third-person perspectives. A new play-style has also been introduced to capitalize on the game's use of real-time 3D, allowing players to run, strafe, climb, and jump through the game world. The game's interface reflects this, as players must now use both the mouse and the keyboard to control the protagonist.
The game does not utilize a traditional savegame system but instead saves the player's progress whenever the program is exited. Checkpoints exist in each location.

The Press Says
Since the online, multiplayer portion of URU: Ages Beyond Myst was discontinued in 2004, links to that part of the game will no longer work. Players interested in continuing their adventures on-line should play Myst Online: Uru LIve
