The world of Dereno, an artic world that also contains another D'ni pod for players to explore. Rand Miller, the creator of [i]Myst Online[/i] and CEO of Cyan Worlds, had this to say: "We're excited that as the Myst universe continues to expand online, so does the accessibility to our unique world. Many of the original Myst fans were Mac users, so for GameTap to reopen the door to this audience really means a lot to Cyan on a personal level."
