Myst 4: Revelation Spoilers

Welcome to the new Computer Game Spoilers section of my gaming website. I added this section because I recently received questions about the plots of two different games which, to my surprise and embarrassment, I had totally forgotten the answers to. Then, to my further surprise, I was unable to find any existing website that would refresh my memory about the plots of computer games... lots of puzzle solutions, but no basic plot summaries.

So I figured I'd better write some of them down while they're still fresh in my mind, just in case I or anybody else wants to refer to them at some point in the future (or in case anybody suffers a major game glitch and just wants to know what was supposed to happen in the end-- I get letters like this from time to time.) If you haven't finished Myst 4: Revelation yet and you don't want the plot of this game to be revealed to you, then you don't want to read this page. Please go back to my main Myst 4: Revelation page, where I give tips and reviews without giving away any of its plot.

But if you are looking for plot spoilers, just scroll further down the page to find them!

Plot Summary

The player character is an old friend of Atrus' (you are assumed to have played the previous three games already) so you go to visit him and his family in his new home on Tomahna. But the only one there is his 10-year-old daughter Yeesha. You then learn that Atrus and his wife Catherine are considering bringing back their adult sons Sirrus and Achenar, the ones who they imprisoned in trap books for being evil lunatics and destroying many innocent worlds. Not only this, but they have been allowing these deranged criminals unsupervised visits with young Yeesha. Soon enough, there is an explosion and Yeesha is kidnapped. The PC must then determine who is responsible and rescue her. Eventually, Yeesha is found strapped to a chair and asking to be released, while Achenar appears and tells the PC that it's a trap and not to free her. If the player has explored carefully, he or she can deduce that Achenar is correct and Sirrus has swapped bodies with Yeesha in order to trick his father into teaching him to write Ages. Achenar and the PC manage to kill Sirrus and save Yeesha, but Achenar dies in the process, leaving Yeesha to cry over his body and Atrus to reflect on his parenting mistakes.

Game Endings

Unlike the previous three Myst games, there is only one way to finish Revelation without being killed (distrusting Yeesha and pulling the amber lever.) There are, however, two different ways to lose this game. Here they are:

Losing Ending #1: If you trust Yeesha and pull the silver lever, then Yeesha (possessed by Sirrus) kills Achenar by dropping a heavy stone onto him and shoots you to death with his crossbow.

Losing Ending #2: If you dither for too long without doing anything, Yeesha (possessed by Sirrus) suddenly takes Achenar's crossbow away from him and shoots both him and you to death with it.
