Myst was atmospheric and beautifully designed, allowing the player to explore the detailed worlds of the game in non-linear fashion, discovering clues and solving puzzles that opened doorways to additional worlds. It is a fantastic premise that would make an incredible television series.
Just as it revolutionized video games, if done right Myst could be a trendsetting TV show, possibly sparking a new genre. Check out the possibilities: like the game, the story could be told through a first-person point-of-view in which the viewer is a key character in the story as he/she confronts an assortment of incredible landscapes, settings, and characters. Also, each episode could end with a puzzle and viewers could be encouraged to go online to try to solve the puzzle themselves before the next episode airs.
Why Myst hasn't already been optioned for TV is a question that perplexes me. It seems like a no-brainer. Maybe we'll see it happen someday.
