Legendary to Turn Cyan Game ‘Myst’ into Possible Online Series
“Myst,” the PC game that gained popularity after its 1993 release, may become the basis for a new digital series due to a deal between the game’s creators and Legendary TV & Digital Media, a division of Legendary Entertainment.
The first-person game centers on the Stranger, who receives a book that takes the player to a mysterious island (called “Myst”), where he or she must unravel further mysterious to unlock other worlds.
Cyan created the game, which has inspired multimedia adaptations, including a book series along with a bunch of game sequels.
Legendary has yet to announce whether the “Myst” series will land on television or online.
Earlier this year, the company ink a deal with Crackle to launch its first digital feature film, “Dead Rising: Watchtower,” exclusively on the streaming service in the US. That deal, plus a few others including the acquisition of Felicia Day’s Geek & Sundry as well as the launch of Derek Jeter’s The Players’ Tribune, are part of a broader effort by Legendary to expand into digital content.Tags: cyan, gaming, legendary, Legendary Entertainment, Legendary TV & Digital Media, myst, mystery series
