I have just bought a new iMac and would like to play games that are similar to Myst. I tried Cyan but they seem to be out of business. Any suggestions?

Have you tried Myst itself? You can use codeweavers $30 CrossOver Games, which can emulate windows versions dating back quite a while.

Thanks
I would like to play a myst like game using leopard. There seems to be some uncertainty that Myst can play on Tiger.

I was referring to the PC versions, but the mac versions, if there's some uncertainty, I'd suggest using rosetta to open it, because the problem would probably be that it's PPC, not intel.

Are there any games for Mac OS10.5 like Myst?

Well, if you forego myst itself, I'd suggest something like
Siberia

quest for the rest (online)
http://questfortherest.com/

And my personal favorites- absolutely great Samorost (1and2) MUST check this out

http://amanita-design.net/samorost-1/
http://amanita-design.net/samorost-2/

They are both online, but for $5 you can buy the full version of samorost 2 (which is downloadable)
Samorost is probably the best of the three games.

Hope this helps
