Default Just got Myst can anyone help?

so I've been running around for about 2 hours now clicking buttons and pulling levers etc. I can't really seem to find anything happening? I don't want the straight up solution but maybe a hint or something I should try doing?

Which Myst are you playing? I've never played any of them but it might help others who have played them. Can we assume it's just the 1st one?

Also, your best bet may be to just look up a walk through until you can get past the spot your stuck at.

Games like Myst require you to think outside of the box. Find clues and interpret them to produce results.

IMO, it just requires thinking at all, something very few games being made today actually do.

Old school adventure games, whether they be pre-rendered FPS like Myst or 2D third perspective point-and-click can be hard to push into the first few games, once you learn the 'tropes' of the genre they get gradually easier.

Here are a few things to think about while playing:

-What am I doing? Is there a story, if so, did I bother to read it?

-What is the situation and goal of my character? Once I know, it's easier to understand what each puzzle is meant to accomplish.

-Did something happen when I moved/activated this puzzle part? If nothing is apparent, did something happen somewhere else?

-Are there parts of the world I am locked out of? If so, are any of the puzzles relevant in opening up those things to me?

If a puzzle/ machine/activator doesn't make sense to you, it's best to reset it to it's original state and try one thing at a time, and every time you do, check all around the place.

I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man
