1993 – Robyn and Rand Miller
Reimagining the video game
Myst, created by brothers Robyn and Rand Miller, was a breakthrough video game that combined graphics and storytelling like never before. The Macintosh helped them bring to life a new type of first-person, role-playing adventure where players saw everything from the character’s point of view. With the Mac, the Millers could render 3D images to capture more detail and texture and let players become completely absorbed in a mysterious, fantastically original world.
Released October 25, 1993
Not to be confused with today’s Apple TV, this was the first Macintosh with built-in television capabilities. It was an early example of Apple designers combining multiple devices into one, and was the only black Macintosh desktop until the introduction of the new Mac Pro.
