Cyan Worlds has colored the world impressed. The game studio -- previously named Cyan -- is responsible for the hit Myst, released in 1993, and its sequel Riven, released in 1997, which have together sold more than 12 million copies. The games combine 3-D animation and high-quality sound with a nonviolent cerebral discovery storyline. The company licensed the Myst concept to Presto Studios for the third game in the series, Myst III: Exile . Brothers Rand and Robyn Miller founded Cyan in 1987 and made early works such as The Manhole and Cosmic Osmo. Robyn left in 1998 to start a movie production house.Cyan Worlds is one of the few game studios that has remained independent in an age of industry consolidation. In 2000 the company announced its first new products since Riven, including Real Myst, an updated version of the classic with enhanced graphics. Since then, it has introduced numerous new games, including Myst Online: Uru Live and Myst V .
