We're thrilled to be partnering with Noodlecake Studios on introducing a new generation of gamers to Myst and Riven
Spokane, WA (PRWEB) January 26, 2017
Cyan, Inc., the legendary indie studio that created some of the most beloved games of all time, has teamed up with award-winning Noodlecake Studios (makers of Super Stickman Golf 3) for the worldwide Android release of beloved classics, Myst and Riven. Beginning today, realMyst is available for download on Google Play and Amazon for $6.99 USD, with Riven, its sequel, coming soon.
"We're thrilled to be partnering with Noodlecake Studios on introducing a new generation of gamers to Myst and Riven," said Rand Miller, CEO, Cyan.
"Getting to work with Cyan on realMyst is about as surreal as the game itself. Myst was such a huge part of our gaming histories that never in our wildest dreams did we think our small studio in the middle of nowhere Canada would work on such a storied franchise. Rand and Robyn's work has had a huge influence on us and we're excited for our fans to discover this magical game," said Ryan Holowaty, COO, Noodlecake Studios.
Myst made its debut in 1993 to critical and popular acclaim and went on to become the best-selling game of the last millennium. Riven followed in 1997 with much fanfare led by Steve Jobs who showcased the game as one that pushed the edge of the the most advanced graphics technology at Apple. The games came to iOS in 2009 and 2012, respectively.
realMyst features vast exploration of strange deserted landscapes with forests to meander, trees to gaze up into, rippling fountains to relax next to, and thunderstorms to seek shelter from. Spin round a panoramic tour of a throne room and try to decipher a series of maddening books that will unlock alternate planes of reality.

- All of the original Myst Ages and bonus Rime Age content
- Bluetooth controller support for Android phones, tablets, and NVIDIA Shield
