The Myst 25th Anniversary Collection [Kickstarter] is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter and the developer has teamed up with Codeweavers for the Mac version, turns out they're looking into Linux too.

Sounds like a pretty decent package, as it will include all the Myst games, all seven of them in fact.

For those that haven't heard of Codeweavers, they're the folks that support the Wine project and have their own commercial application named CrossOver. CrossOver is essentially their own special build of Wine, along with their own user interface.

Cyan Worlds announced earlier this month, that they teamed up with Codeweavers to handle the Mac builds, nothing was said about Linux. However, we had a nice tip from GOL fan "nox" noting that their FAQ has been updated to include this:

Since Codeweavers works with Linux, too, will Linux ports of the Myst 25 Collection also be available for Backers?
The Linux option is now being investigated. More news to come!

The developers also said GOG has given them a hand too, which is nice.

It's already funded, well over the goal in fact. Will let you know if we hear any more on this.

I bought a pack ages (lol) ago with all of those in it, except realMyst, and also bought Myst IV seperately (hey, the box was nice), but I'm happy to buy it all again if native (even if just wrapped) Linux ports showed up. Perhaps this time I'll work on finishing the ones I have yet to finish!

Ooh, nice! I haven't actually played all of them yet.

Oh cool. Sad thing, until I get to play them it's probably 2025, because I'm way behind the games I want to play :p.

Would buy this in a heartbeat. Loved these games.

I beat the original Myst on the Atari Jaguar CD. I think I have it for the Amiga somewhere too. It is one of those fames that released for just about every platform. I still need to play Obduction in VR (it is made by the same developers as Myst.)

I need this in my life.

I would love to play through those again on Linux!
