A couple of months ago, we told you about Cyan Worlds' upcoming iOS port of realMyst, the fully-interactive, remdered-on-the-fly, 3-D version of the seminal PC classic. Since then, the puzzler's developer has been hard at work tweaking the boards and pacing to fit the touch interface just so, and they've released the following video as a progress report (via Touch Arcade): Coincidentally, this is the level that always gave me fits in the original, and I can't say seeing those water-bound trees makes me all that excited to play the game again. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to realMyst's "Spring 2012" release, if for nothing else but the nostalgia. And the abject frustration of it all.
