Game description:
A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. Crippled by a devastating EMP strike, the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic. Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs. This is a police state where high school stadiums have become detention centers, and shopping malls shelter armored attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners… or collaborators… or revolutionaries.

Myst V – End of Ages back as port in Porting Kit!

A while back on Mojave, Cyan had released All Myst games for Mac, unfortunately that appeared to be for a very small time. Because after a short time after the release to Mac, Catalina came out and made an end to it for Myst IV revelation, Myst URU Chronicles, and Myst V – End of Ages. Fortunately we managed to port Myst Uru Chronicles and Myst IV- Revelation back to Mac so you could play it also on Catalina and Big Sur. Now we added Myst V- End of Ages as well. When interested to the Mac versions of the first 3 titles, these are still native available on GOG.com using SCUMVM.

Game description:
Myst 5: End of Ages brings the marvelous story presented in the series to a very satisfying and definitive end. This is one of those games where you keep the whole end-credits rolling while you submerge yourself in thoughts of what you have just experienced and how incredible it was. It is even a little sad that this is it but every great story has to have an end and this is clearly the conclusion the series deserved.
