(Small folder)

It is not for sale or trade. Do not ask me.

Myth was never sold commercially. It was given away as a welcoming gift to players who joined the "Official Secrets" adventure game club. (Membership forms were included in some Magnetic Scrolls packages in Britain, but not in the U.S.) The game exists for Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore, and IBM PC.

The square cardboard folder package is very small, not much bigger than the 3.5" disk it contains. The only other inclusion is an instruction leaflet.

Each disk label was personalized with the owner's name and membership number, adding sentimental value that makes it nearly impossible to find anyone willing to part with their copy.

Collectors take care: There are a couple of other games out there with the same title, the most popular being Myth: The Fallen Lords and Myth: History in the Making. Be sure you're really getting this one before you put down several hundred dollars for it. The Real Thing (TM) has no subtitle. Always ask for scans.

The game itself is quite short, with only a couple of significant puzzles, and tells the story of the final days of the Greek gods and the rise of Christianity. The player is cast as Poseidon. It is one of the rarest and most sought-after games ever.

Again: It is not for sale or trade. Do not ask me.
