Myst IV: Revelation

aka: Myst 4, Myst IV: Objawienie, Myst IV: Révélation

Description official descriptions

In Myst IV, you learn the fate of the two brothers from Myst 1 and must search for Yeesha, Atrus' daughter. Sirrus and Achenar have remained trapped in their prison worlds for crimes they have committed. With the disappearance of Yeesha, you must explore the two prison worlds and find her.

Like the previous games in the Myst series, the gameplay is node based and not 3-D like Uru. Myst IV is more interactive than any other previous Myst game. Using a hand as your cursor, you can push buttons, pull and push things, open and close drawers, or just tap objects. The game also contains a built in hint system with three levels of hints, each level gives more and more help on how to solve a puzzle.

The soundtrack was composed by Jack Wall with a song by artist Peter Gabriel.

Myst IV also has the addition of a zip mode, allowing you to quickly travel to places you've been before.

Peter Gabriel, of Genesis fame, after featuring Burn You Up, Burn You Down in Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, wrote a song specifically for Myst IV.

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.

Xbox version

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.
