Description (from EW.com):

In Pyst, players take a tour of the eponymous dump of an island, which (as perky guides explain in breezy voice-overs) is about to become a high-priced real estate development. The disc has 10 amusingly cluttered tableaux, including the Chernobyl Room (a nuclear reactor that appears to be only slightly safer than the one in The Simpsons) and Alien Trash (which reconfigures Myst's famous rocket as a creaky rust bucket with an AC extension cord). Unlike Myst, Pyst offers no problems to be solved — the excruciatingly enigmatic hints scattered throughout are meaningless and just part of the joke — but this shortfall is partly compensated by the appearance of Roseanne's John Goodman, who has a jolly good time in his brief cameo as King Mattruss.

LOL I love parodies. How can I pick up a game that has been archived? Are they rotating on a monthly schedule?

Using Free Easy Burneer on windoes seems to keep both bits of hybrid CDs, at least it did with SimTower. By the way toast images are just renamed isos...

I *think* 'Driven' and 'Star Warped' came out of their bag too. Parrot Interactive that is. At least there was a demo of 'Driven' with one of those games.

Click on the rim/edge of the card, IIRC.

Making images of hybrid CD ROMs with Toast preserves the Windows part of a CD ROM.
Good work, both thumbs up!
