Myst Drama, Based on '90s Computer Game, in the Works at Hulu

Myst TV Series Hulu

Are you ready to go back to… the island? (No, not that island.)

Legendary Television is developing a drama based on the popular ’90s computer game Myst, which has received a script-to-series commitment from Hulu, according to our sister site Deadline.

Originally released in 1993, Myst put players in the role of a man who wakes up on a mysterious island with no idea who he is, where he is or how he ended up there. (Get it? Myst-erious?)

Matt Tolmach (The Amazing Spider-Man) is on board to produce with Evan Daugherty (Divergent) penning the script.

    I remember watching my dad play these games when I was little, then playing them with him. No idea how a game that relies almost solely on puzzle solving could be turned into a series

      There were at least 3 books I know of based on the Myst worlds and characters. I imagine the series would be similar. Looking forward to this. If it is done well, could be EPIC.

  2. Chris says:

    Awesome! I love Myst. And even though Video Game adaptations to the big (or small) screen is hard to pull off. I think this would make a great TV series. Can’t wait!

  3. Donnie Benson says:

    With no characters, that’s going to be hard to pull off. Watching someone else solve the puzzles would get boring fast.

  4. FatherOctavian says:

    The Myst games have a very developed storyline, including three spinoff novels. If done right, this could be wonderful.

    • Karen MT says:

      I was thinking the same thing. I’ve only read one novel and played most of the series, but there’s a lot to pull from both Atrus’ storyline and the D’ni.

    I’m always skeptical about games being made into series or movies, but Myst has such a rich lore that this could be interesting.
