Cheat, Tips and Strategy

Got a cheat or hot tip for this game? Found a secret, or a strategy for success?

Read Everything Carefully

It is crucial that you take the time to read through all the texts in Myst. Don't make the mistake of skimming the books and the other texts in the game because doing so will result in you becoming confused and frustrated and ultimately getting lost. The reason why it is so important that you carefully read everything carefully is because there are hidden clues in each book and description.

Use a Computer to Process Clues

When you are given a blatant clue regarding a puzzle, you will need to process the data to figure out how it will help you solve the puzzle. If for example you are provided with dates they will need to be input somewhere, whether it is at the interface of the computer at the observation building, the underground base, or the tower. The interface of each computer will indicate what type of data can be inputted.

Explore the Island

Explore the Island

When you begin playing Myst make getting familiar with the layout of the island and having a basic understanding of what is there your first priority. The island isn't particularly large, so this process will not take you long and knowing where everything is will allow you to progress quicker as all the puzzles in the game are related, and you will know where to go to perfor..

How to Solve Puzzles

How to Solve Puzzles

The clues to solve puzzles in Myst are all there, you just need to look and listen, time and patience are the only things that can help you. Objects and information discovered in one Age may be required to solve puzzles in another Age, or to complete the game's primary puzzle. An example of this is the Stack Overflow Achievement, which requires you to fill up all the sh..

Use the Flashlight

In the remastered 2021 version of Myst you have a flashlight, which you can use to maneuver through dark areas of the map. This is something that was not provided in the original 90s version of the game. Make sure you take full advantage of the flashlight while searching for the switches in each location, which will provide a lot more light and usually denote a puzzle of some kind.

How to get the Stoneship Achievement

To get this achievement in Myst you need to find a way back from the Stoneship Age. You can enter the area by raising the ship and reading the book in the captain's quarters. Solve the Chest, Beacon, and Power Battery puzzles to return to Myst. The secret to the age is the E shaped lever right behind the spawn.

Take your Time

You will not be able to complete Myst in one session, there is literally too much information to take in and process, and the amount of concentration needed to do so in order to progress will take it's toll. You have a far more enjoyable gaming experience if each time you log in you focus on solving a few puzzles, taking notes while you do so. By taking notes, you will be able to take a break and return to the game and have something you can refer to that will jog your memory and be fresh to tackle new puzzles.

Pay Attention to Small Details

Literally everything that is in Myst has been deliberately placed to provide you with clues and many of them will not become apparently clear until later on in the playthrough, so it is crucial that you pay attention to small details that seem irrelevant and make a note of them. You do not have to use a physical notepad and pen to jot down notes, taking screenshots will also work.

Always Make Notes

It cannot be stressed enough how crucial it is to take notes as you progress through Myst. Whether it's icons, dates, constellations, or times you must make a note of them as they are all relevant and at some point during the game will provide the clue you are looking for that will help you to progress. Always keep in mind that each puzzle is interconnected and whenever you complete one a new area will open, or it will provide vital information about another sector of the map.

Interact with Everything

Interact with Everything

In Myst it is essential that you click on any item that can be interacted with as lots of information in the way of hints and clues are held by them. There will however be instances where you push a button or activate a switch and nothing appears to happen. This is never the case, you need to become curious and investigate as there will be a reason why nothing happe..

Revisit Points of Interest

Whenever you solve a task in Myst, the game will reveal how you can initiate a new task. Nearly all the POIs (points of interest) are nearby to the spawn point, and it is at these locations you should begin tackling the new task. If at any point you find the game confusing, and you are not progressing you should rotate between the known POIs as one of these places will likely be the location you need to visit in order to proceed with the game. More often than not, when you can't figure something out, the answer will be closer than you think.

How to get the Can Opener Achievement

To get this achievement, you need to solve the gear puzzle inside the clocktower. The correct order of numbers from top to bottom is 221. Press the right lever twice, and press and hold the left lever until the 2 reaches the middle. Once you complete both, you will gain access to the Mechanical Age. The book to access the age is on the platform by the dock.
