Myst Online for Macs

GameTap today announced that a Mac compatible version of Myst Online is in active development by TransGaming, bringing the world of Uru to Mac users for the first time. "The release of Myst Online for Mac represents the beginning of exciting new possibilities for Mac gamers," stated Vikas Gupta, CEO and President of TransGaming, Inc. "We look forward to bringing many more great games to the Mac in coming months." The company also announced that a new area of the city and an all-new, never-before-seen Age are being released on Friday as part of the beta program; however, it will not be compatible with Macs until the Mac version ships later this year. Players interested in participating in the Mac beta program can visit the company's webiste (no information on the Mac beta had been posted ast of 3 pm EST).

The "Myst Online: Uru Live" preview storyline continues to build with last week's introduction of Cate Alexander. "Cate's appearance has had a significant effect on the D'ni Restoration Council (DRC) and the cavern restoration effort as a whole, as evidenced by the recent opening of several city areas. That pattern continues with the opening of more city areas, including the Great Zero, and the restoration of an all-new Age, which explorers can visit for the first time ever."

"The original Myst game premiered on the Mac," said Rand Miller, CEO of Cyan Worlds and creator of Myst Online. "The Mac community has always been huge supporters of the Myst franchise and we're thrilled that we will soon be able to invite them to the newest Myst experience."
