Myst, Riven, Uru, The Manhole, and more 60% off this weekend only.

Go on a Myst-ical adventure! One of the highlights of gaming is the ability to traverse through amazing imaginary lands, teeming with marvelous things just waiting to be discovered. A mystery at every turn, a otherworldly breathtaking view atop every hill, strange creatures, mysterious contraptions, forgotten civilizations--all of it right in front of you, on your computer screen. In the business of inventing such fantastic lands, Cyan Worlds Inc. remains one of unquestioned leaders. Why? Just look at these games:

Myst: Masterpiece Edition (or Real Myst), Riven, Uru: Complete Chronicles, and Myst 5: The End of Ages take you on an incredible journey through the half-imaginary worlds called "Ages" and challange you to unravel the secrets of their mysterius creators. It's an unforgettable experience that no fan of puzzle-packed adventure games should miss.

The Manhole: Masterpiece Edition is something entirely different from everything you might have experienced in your virtual journeys. It may seem, that it's addressed to children--whimsical graphics and a story full of magic suggest so--but its surreal charm will delight gamers of all ages. If you're looking for something balancing on the fine edge of weirdness, be sure to give it a try!

Immerse yourself in the fantastic realms created by Cyan Worlds Inc.! Begin your fantastic journey right now by visiting the Myst-iclal promo page!

And in case you missed it, here's what's new on GOG.com!

SirPrimalform: Why did you change "The Manhole" to "Humongous Entertainment classics"? For a second I was going "What!? Surprise release?".

Gazoinks: I think he was making a point about Humongous Entertainment and children's games and stuff.
Yeah, pretty silly I'll admit, but GOG seems to have something against certain good old kid's games on here, so I'll occasionally let out my frustration on that issue.

Clearly they hate children. Have you ever seen a child in a GOG video? HAVE YOU? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Have they turned down the opportunity to release them?

I'm suspect they did, even though I cannot be 100% sure of it. Atari actually responded to Barry_Woodward's tweet about getting them on here, saying, "...that's a good idea," but I haven't heard anything since then. I wouldn't blame them turning them down if it was something like Reader Rabbit or some things far more unknown, but I consider these kid games timeless classics. (Plus, they were made by ex-Lucasarts employees and Jeremy Soule composed some of the music.) Nimbus Games is porting some "updated"-ish versions to iPhone and tablets, but for some reason Atari and Nimbus have avoided re-relasing them - the originals - on PC, which boggles my mind.

Anyway, I know at least a few other games have been turned down because they were childish, but also obscure. These are not obscure, so I honestly can't help but wonder if there's something about "outright" children's games that GOG doesn't like. (I actually sent a concern to TET, but he never responded.)

Maybe it's because of who controls the credit card. :P This is one of those things that's I can kind of let go, but may sometimes come back to me, a la mi avatar.

Great promo with great games.
I liked Myst 3 Exile.
I just started Myst and Riven 10 years ago, without walkthroughs... Didnt have a chance.

I´m think about getting realmyst, Riven or URU now, because of the sail.

But I fear Realmyst/Myst is too ugly and empty for me. Riven is too empty and difficult (pixelhunting). Uru... I dont like 3d-person view and the controls should be hard to handle.

What do you think about these games?
How hard are these games compared to each other?
I would like to know if I am thinking about these games in the right way....

Greetings!
Myst Masterpiece, Riven, Uru and Myst V are all on my shelf now. What a great deal this was. I've always wanted to try these games. Thanks GOG! :D

Well, any half-decent marketeer will know that, despite the money being controlled by the parents, it's the children who control the parents :P

Jokes aside, I think children games wouldn't do bad in here. From what I can tell, the average GOGer is in the late 20s, 30s and even higher, many with children of their own and more than willing to pass down the little bug to the next generation.
