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.

Awesome, at this point we can play the original Myst and Riven on Linux using ScummVM. I was not able to get any of the other Myst games to work on Wine. I'd really like to get realMyst: Masterpiece Edition on Linux... that is the one Myst game that I've not played yet.

If they support Linux, I would buy this even if I didn't have a chance to replay them.

Myst Revelation worked perfectly for us in wine. I believe we had to apply a no-cd crack, but other than that it was perfect.
