Classic puzzle adventure game Myst might see the big screen after all. Hollywood motion picture team Village Roadshow Pictures has acquired the film and TV rights to the game.

Originally by Rand and Robyn Miller in 1993, Myst is a 3D first-person adventure for PC. The player awakens on an Island, learning that many of the local books can teleport them to new lands. Using this, they must unravel the mystery of the Island of Myst and learn where the books' author and his children disappeared to.

In 2014, Myst's rights were given to Legendary for the purpose of a TV series and a new game. Neither of these ventures panned out, however. Now Village Roadshow Pictures has the rights. The same folks behind The Matrix, Sherlock Holmes, and the Lego Movie, VRP intends to produce a film and adjacent TV series based on Myst. Details about either production were not released, neither was how much they paid for the rights.

Like any video game movie, this might be great, might be awful. At least in film form, you don't have to strain your brain for 45 minutes over that dumb underground rail puzzle before giving up and looking for the solution online.

Myst was originally for PC in 1993. It has since released on iOS, Android, Steam, and Nintendo 3DS. The original developers also remade the graphics in a release called RealMyst.
