Stuffing a Universe Onto a Single CD‑ROM ↦

Lee Hutchinson from Ars Technica recently interviewed Rand Miller about the creation of the seminal ’90s video game Myst:

Originally available only for Macintosh computers, I had to play Myst at a friend’s house as my parent’s computer was a PC. I was immediately captivated by the surreal world created by Rand and his brother Robyn. Myst has been regularly re-released, including for iOS, so now my children have played it, too.

If you were into computers in the ’90s, and possibly even if you weren’t, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this interview.
