About Myst V: End of Ages in brief
Myst V: End of Ages is a 2005 adventure video game, the fifth installment in the Myst series. The game was developed by Cyan Worlds, published by Ubisoft, and released for Macintosh and Windows PC platforms in September 2005. Players travel across several worlds known as ‘Ages’, solving puzzles and gathering story clues by reading books or observing the environment. A new game mechanic to the series is the use of a slate found on all the Ages, which can be carved using the mouse to create shapes and symbols. The use of the slate is necessary to communicate with a shadowy race of creatures known as the Bahro. The faces of actors were digitally mapped onto three-dimensional character models to preserve realism. After the game’s release, Cyan abruptly announced the end of software development and the layoff of most of its staff, but was able to rehire much of the development team a few weeks later. The player starts in the present day, sometime after the events of Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, and begins as the player responds to a letter from Atrus. A linking book to the Age of Myst, the setting of the original game, lies sealed in the ruins of the ancient D’ni civilization. In the letter, Atrus expresses concern that his daughter, Yeesha, may be lost as well. In order to uncover the mystery, the player must use a tablet locked in place on an altar to unlock the artifact. The artifact has the ability to fully control a mysterious enslaved race known as Grower, who can no longer use it instead of the player instead of Aseesha.
After unlocking the tablet, she charges the player with a charge to fully use it, but the player is no longer able to use it. End of ages was positively received, despite complaints such as lessened interactivity compared to previous games and poorer graphics. It was released in the U.S. on September 26, 2005, and was later released in Europe on September 28, 2005. It is the only game in the series to feature 3D graphics, allowing players to freely navigate the Ages. It also includes multiple methods of navigation and an in-game camera, as well as a journal feature to help players recall clues or important items. It has been described as one of the most popular Myst games of all time, and is still popular with collectors today, with over 100,000 copies of the game sold in North America and over 100 countries around the world, including Australia and the UK.
