    I absolutely love the whole Myst series of games and books. It really framed a lot of my childhood memories. I think I still have a couple of notebooks that my dad, sister, and I put together mapping out the different puzzles in that game!

    I used to love playing Must. If u were walking down a hall and saw writing on the wall, you had better remember it cause it without a doubt would show up later in the game as a way to unlock some puzzle you needed to solve to advance. I think I still have my 'Myst notes' notebook somewhere. Can't wait to d/l it to my phone.
