Hulu solves puzzle of Myst TV series uses Tomb Raider writer

first_imgIt’s time to dust off those linking books, Myst is heading to Hulu. Legendary TV announced plans to translate the game into a series last year. Hulu won a bidding war for the project and has ordered a script that will then lead to the presumed straight-to-series order.A kind of pre-Lost story, Myst comes packed with intrigue, mysteries, and the kinds of puzzles that make you want to smash your keyboard against the wall, but we’re guessing that last part will be omitted as the franchise moves to TV.The show is being shepherded along by Amazing Spider-Man producer Matt Tolmach and screenwriter Evan Daugherty. Daugherty’s credits include Snow White and the Huntsman, Divergent, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and is also working on the Tomb Raider film.Myst burst forth from the minds of Robyn and Rand Miller in 1993. The Cyan game hit computers and drove players crazy as they controlled the Stranger, a character who discovers the puzzle-filled island of Myst. While there, he discovers that linking books transport him to different Ages, as well as the fractured family history of the island’s previous inhabitants.At this point, nothing is known about how closely the series will follow the game. Myst offered players a variety of choices as the story progressed that changed the game’s outcome, so there’s plenty of story material there — and that’s not even taking into consideration the game’s sequels, spinoffs, and novels.last_img read more
