Real Myst book is a thing of stunning beauty | Adventure Games | Scoop.it
Not only is this real-life Myst linking book gorgeous, it also operates as a fully functional console for playing the Myst games.

Nowadays, you'd probably be able to shove an iPod Touch or something in there, but Ando wanted to do it properly.

'Routine' Is Anything But

'Routine' Is Anything But | Adventure Games | Scoop.it

Anna, their forthcoming horror adventure game, you see, is one of the rare point-and-click, puzzle-'em'-up offerings that attempt to actually scare the player and, hopefully, a game that will stand on the shoulders of such sub-genre giants as Scratches and Amnesia and manage to pull off something new and interesting.
