Myst V: End of Ages
|Myst V: End of Ages|
Developers: Cyan Worlds,
Beenox (Mac OS X port)
Myst V: End of Ages is, true to its name, ostensibly the final game in the Myst series. That said, the game is mostly composed of unused Uru concepts.
|This page or section needs more images. |
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.
Specifically: Animations; screenshots of it placed in-game.
Amongst the textures for Direbo is the urwin texture used in Negilahn in Uru Live. The dat folder also contains an urwin model (Direbo_drboUrwinShape.prp) and associated idle and walking animations (Direbo_UrwinIdle.prp and Direbo_UrwinWalk.prp). This would appear to indicate that an urwin was at some point going to appear in Direbo.
The textures for the pelicans contain a fair amount of unseen content.

A version of the flag on Fighter Beach, with the symbol outlined.
A prerelease screenshot exists showing the prototype pedestal being used in Todelmer.
The texture used for the editable journal in Uru. The player journal in Myst V uses a different texture (which also later appeared in Uru Live in its originally intended context).
Parts of the avatar customisation GUI from Uru still remain in this game, despite the fact that this game does not have avatar customisation. Additionally, an early logo for the game can be seen, from when the project's working name was Sasquatch.
There is a single unused journal in GlobalEnglish.loc (and the corresponding translation files), named TestBook. The HTML specifies the texture 'xUruX2CreditsJournalCover*1#0.hsm' as the journal's cover. This texture can't be found in Myst V's files, but is instead the cover of the credits journal from Uru: The Path of the Shell.

The French and Italian translators blanked the XML tag containing the journal in their translations, but the Spanish translator decided to translate it fully, and the German translator partially translated it, also using it to test non-English characters.
