Myst | Retro Gaming | Infinite Grenade Launcher Podcast | Level 215
Infinite Grenade Launcher players return to days of past future for more Retro Gaming. This time find themselves teleported to a mysterious island (before LOST made it mainstream) and find many mysteries await them in Myst.
Myst’s popularity contributed to the CD-ROM’s early success. After its release to IBM-compatible PCs in 1994, Myst quickly grew to become the best-selling PC game of all time until The Sims came out in 2002. The OG also inspired a continuing game franchise with four direct sequels, spin-off games and even three novels.
It’s a beautiful, story driven game that sprawls across massive worlds you must traverse in a way that feels real, in that things move more slowly so each sound you hear and page you find resonate with meaning. Current games like the Bioshock franchise owe it a great debt in terms of storytelling, world building, and imagination.
