A tribute to some of my favorite adventure games past & present for #MystJam.


Special thanks:

  • Rand & Robyn Miller for inspiration
  • @S0phieH for organizing Myst Jam
  • Nick, Pam, Adam, Ethan, and Jeremy for sitting my couch and yelling suggestions at me as I desperately tried to finish my modeling before the deadline.

(The initial release was rushed to meet the jam submission deadline, so expect some small fixes in the near future. 'Tis the nature of jams)

The style is interesting and so were the quests but I didn't manage to finish it :(


Unfortunately, the game was unplayable because the fps was really low (looked like 5-10 FPS), even on the lowest settings and resolution on my 2 year old top-end mac. It's not very obvious you have to click on the text at the beginning and the selection indicator is a bit subtle, in my opinion. Also, some of the text descriptions were overlapping and were unreadable.

Looks interesting though. I was able to walk around the island for a moment before I got frustrated with the FPS.

I get an error message: "There should be 'MechanicalAgeWindows_Data'
folder next to the executable"

Whoops! Haven't done Unity builds in a while. Thanks for the heads up--should be fixed now!

You're welcome :)
