Is this going to be a series about games that reference Myst? Or just references in general?



That reference went completely over my head. Still does.
The cons of not having played Myst, I suppose…

How interesting to see a reference to games not made by the same authors… I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with “I’m selling these fine leather jackets” in LucasArts games, but clever and funny references to other works are quite refreshing (especially since we’re talking two classics here).

Do I detect a note of disappointment?

Or just references in general?

Actually, I was kind of hoping people would come up with other funny references…? Smile

Shocking. Incredible. You must be the only person in the whole world of gaming who doesn’t know about the blue pages. And that includes all Myst-haters!

The cons of not having played Myst, I suppose…

I can’t think of any pros.  Tongue

So here’s the story. Atrus has two sons. He imprisoned them both in two books. (No, I’m not going to explain the important function of books in Myst.) One is in the red book, the other in the blue one. The two brothers compete for your attention, they want you to find blue/red pages and beg you not to help their brother. The more pages you find and bring, the better you can see and hear them.

That’s one of them. Sorry, but the Vampyre Story AGCP was such a long time ago and couldn’t retrieve the other….
I added another DotT reference from the Critter Chronicles instead! Smile
Anyone else?

Zork Grand Inquisitor also has a reference to the Blue Pages in the entrance to hell (can’t post the video right now)

That must be the twoheaded monster in ZorkGI.

Let’s cut the crap, okay? You got this far, you know the drill, you’re the adventurer, I’m… we’re your basic two-headed guardian of Hades-type creature. You’re looking for treasure, mana, crystals, red pages, blue pages, whatever. It’s all the same really. The point is: You want to get by. You always do. And we gotta kill you. We always do.

Not at all, I just immediately thought of a game that referenced Myst (well, it punned the title) and I didn’t want to post the screenshot without being certain it wasn’t going to be tomorrow’s AGSotD…


In Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon, there’s a “mist” hotspot near the Brazilian temple. Among the possible verbs was “play”.

If you “play mist”, this is what you get:
