About Myst IV: Revelation in brief
Myst IV: Revelation is the fourth installment in the Myst series. It is the last game in the series to use both prerendered backgrounds and full-motion video. Development of Revelation lasted more than three years. Peter Gabriel lent his voice and a song to the game’s audio. The original score was written by Exile’s composer Jack Wall. Reviewers lauded the impressive visuals, sound, and puzzles. However, Computer Gaming World took issue with the control scheme of the game. The game was released in North America on September 14, 2013. It was released worldwide on September 21, 2014 on PC, Mac, and Mac OS X, and in Europe on September 28, 2014. It has been released in Australia on September 29, 2014, on iOS and Android, and on September 30, 2015, on Europe on PC and Mac, but not on iOS in the UK. The player is summoned by Atrus, a man who creates links to other worlds known as Ages by writing special linking books. Atrus’ two sons, Sirrus and Achenar, destroyed his library on Myst and trapped their parents in order to plunder the wealth of Atrus’s Ages. Revelation features several gameplay enhancements that aid puzzle solving and plot progression. Much of the story is revealed via flashbacks triggered by an amulet that has the power to relay memories attached to objects. Players cannot move freely across each Age; instead, they travel by clicking set locations called \”nodes\”, where players can rotate their view in any direction. Revelation also features a \”Zip\” mode, which allows a method of rapidly crossing explored areas by skipping intermediate nodes.
Areas that can be instantly traveled to are stored as thumbnail representations for rapid movement across Ages. The mouse cursor helps to provide visual cues for player actions and movement. By clicking and dragging the cursor, the player performs actions such as pushing, pulling, and tapping items. Players can use an on-screen journal to jot down notes instead of having to write down clues as with previous Myst games. In the game, players receive a camera, which can be used to take screenshots or pictures of clues. It also has a journal, which is available via a menu on the bottom of thegame screen. It can also be used as a tool to help players solve puzzles and uncover the story’s narrative, such as finding clues to the whereabouts of Yeesha, the father of the player’s character, and finding clues about the past of Sirrus, Achenars, and Riven, the son of Serenar, the owner of the Stone of Life. The final game of the series, End of Ages, is rendered in real-time throughout. It uses pre-rendered graphics with digital video, but also features real- time 3D effects for added realism. The story follows up on plot details from the original Myst. It follows the player as he travels to each brother’s prison, in an attempt to recover Yeeesha from the brothers’ plot. After being knocked unconscious by an explosion, thePlayer realizes that Yeeeesha has disappeared.
