Myst III at Macworld, New Preview
8:41 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The official Myst III: Exile web site (not to be confused with the just-announced Myth 3 game from GoD), has been updated with news and pics from the recent Macworld San Francisco Expo. With the game set to be delivered for Mac and PC on April 9, there was already much excitement and anticipation at the show. Here's an excerpt from their update:

MYST III: EXILE made an appearance at MacWorld New York last summer, but it wasn't until MacWorld Expo San Francisco last week that we were able to show
actual gameplay and let the fans test drive the technology underneath the hood. We had the E3 trailer looping on a G3 machine to attract attendees to our booth. Then we grabbed their attention with the gameplay
and technology demos running seamlessly on the G4 Cube. In four straight days of demo'ing, we did not experience a single crash. The ATI Radeon card shipping with the Cube allowed us to show off a couple of the
accelerated graphics features such as moving water and sun glare.

Our Macintosh programmer, Roland Gustafsson, linked four nodes from different locations, allowing fans to experience the 360 degree panning
feature of the engine, while exploring the lush landscapes of the Age.

Check out their page for pictures of happy Presto employees showing off their creation. For more details on this title, be sure to read IMG's just-published preview. Here's an excerpt of said preview:
Myst III:Exile will feature the same point-and-click interface as previous titles. It will have the same puzzles that will make your brain sweat. However, with the new Sprint engine, fantastic graphics, and immersive sound this newest game will draw you into its reality just as surely as the others did. Because of the new Sprint engine, the game designers are not limited to eye-level puzzle placement. Though, there are only certain places the player can go, he or she is free to look all around. The designers have freedom to place their puzzles and clues anywhere they like. Expect Myst III to be even more challenging than the last titles.
Presto has announced Exile will be completed and shipped by April 9, so get ready for the third engrossing installment in this uber-popular series.
