A from Just Adventure

Deeper Than Time Itself.....

Immerse yourself in the deepest Myst adventure to date. This fantastic bundle includes the original Uru, To D'ni (the 1st Uru expansion pack), and The Path of the Shell (the 2nd Uru expansion pack) in 1 complete set.

Secrets of the past must be uncovered, Secrets of the present must be understood, and Secrets of the future must be revealed.

Uru: Ages Beyond Myst

From Cyan Worlds, the makers of Myst® and Riven™, Uru™: Ages Beyond Myst is the next chapter of the Myst franchise and the most immersive and ambitious Myst experience ever created. The single-player game will be bigger, better, and more innovative than any of the previous Myst adventures. Players can move at their own pace, spending hours discovering visually stunning, real-time 3D worlds, solving a large variety of mind-challenging puzzles, and following an epic storyline. Players can continue to discover new areas of D'ni by connecting to Uru Live, the online service of Uru. There, players will be part of an ever-expanding world that brings more areas to explore and more mysteries to solve.

To D'ni:

This first Uru expansion pack lets the player visit various parts of the D'ni cavern. Myst fans will be astounded by the amount of historical and cultural information included in this expansion, and those new to the greatest adventure game of all time will be driven by the expansion story's major dramatic question: "What happened to the DRC and its Restoration?" Through a series of challenges that send the player searching the island of Ae'gura (including its museum and library) and two D'ni neighborhoods, the player accesses three sections of the D'ni Great Zero. Finally, the player succeeds where the Restoration failed by powering up the Great Zero and, in doing so, discovers the answer to the question that's driven him. To D'ni adds new Ages, areas, Relto customizations, technical features, clothing, gameplay, and story to Uru.

Uru: Path Of The Shell:

Immerse yourself in the next installment of Uru: Ages Beyond Myst. Path of the Shell will take you deeper into the adventure. Journey to uncover Yeesha's destiny and the story of the future of D'ni™ as you explore the stunning worlds in this expansion of the epic adventure that is Myst: Uru. More than 10 new puzzles to master. Numerous new clothing options to choose from. Extended storyline that continues the Uru adventure. Additional Ages and areas to explore. New gameplay elements including interaction with creatures, swimming, and an editable player journal.

Reviews:

Just Adventure by Jennifer Miller

"Cyan has also given the player the option to toggle between a first person and third person perspective, so if you really can’t stand watching yourself running around, you have the ability switch back and forth. I recommend this for puzzle solving, but I’ll explain that later. When in third person mode, you can get a better sense of just how large everything is. These Ages are just overwhelming their scope..."

"Now, just because I made such a huge deal of the graphics, interface, and sound, doesn’t mean this game is lacking in puzzle fodder. In fact, it has some of the most “outside of the box” puzzles I’ve ever had to deal with. Carla Melloni says in her article that some of the puzzles are not nearly up to par with those found in Riven. I’m going to have to disagree with her. Riven tested the limits of your logic – some places in Uru will test the limits of your patience. Puzzles vary widely in type, from the basic learn how to turn on a machine, to the run as fast as you can in twenty seconds to get all parts of a machine to work. So not only do you have to be quick with your mind, but also quick with your fingers,..."

"...Uru is neither a pure adventure, nor a pure RPG in the sense of Final Fantasy or Warcraft. It is an astonishing synthesis of the two, taking the story and puzzle elements of the adventure and the graphic flexibility of the RPG. Adding in a dash of online gaming, and Cyan might just have created a game that will appeal to gamers from all genres. This could be the first true blockbuster, cross-genre game."
