Unused and Unseen Graphics
testMap (in the Mechanical assets file)
Linking Cursor Icons
Verify that only link4 is used?
There are four separate versions of the icon used for the cursor when the player is linking. link4 is used in-game.
Within resources.assets are the textures MystMoon (a mostly unmodified image of Enceladus, a moon of Saturn) and moontrans (a heavily-modified image of Earth's Moon), neither of which are used in-game. Instead, the texture moon (a rotated and slightly-modified image of Earth's Moon) in the Myst texture files is used for Myst's moon.
Don't Save Here
This texture is used in-game, although it's placed underneath the horizontal gear on Myst Island, and so can't be seen normally.
This texture is located in the Myst Island .assets file.
Presumably this photo is of QA tester Josh Van Veldhuizen, but not necessarily... verify or deny this.
This Polaroid photo of one of the game's developers is present in the game, hidden on the beach behind the tower on Myst Island, though it's impossible to see clearly normally.
Verify that it wasn't used in the demo?
This image is left-over from the demo of realMYST, realMYST Test, though it didn't actually appear in the demo.
Alexander Miller Signature
Find out who Alex Miller is. Also, can this be seen in-game?
This signature, in the Stoneship asset file, could also be found in the files of realMYST Test.
A texture with the text "linking...", located in the asset file used for the loading screens.
|This needs some investigation.|
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Are these from the iPad version of realMYST?
realMYST iPad Assets
Present in resources.assets, StreamingAssets\Images, and StreamingAssets\Videos are a variety of leftover assets from realMYST for iPad, including every video, and the GUI elements.

The other easter eggs
Crystal Viewer Developer Images
Document the combinations required to view the images.
In addition to the combinations for Riven and the Puzzle Age, there are ten other reserved combinations, which when entered display photos placed there by the game's developers. "Tomahnoy" is D'ni for "my house".
If the player inputs the initials of programmer Hannah Gamiel ("HLG") into the fireplace in the Myst library and presses the button, the game will attempt to award them the achievement "Myst_HannahFireplace", which doesn't exist, and will then softlock.
