The 85 Weirdest, Day 60: Rand & Robyn Miller

Saturday, July 5th, 2008

The 85th anniversary issue of Weird Tales features our big list of “The 85 Weirdest Storytellers of the Past 85 Years.” We’re breaking it down online, too: one honoree per day, in no particular order, for 85 days!

When they designed, wrote, and produced the computer game Myst, the brothers RAND & ROBYN MILLER (1959–, 1966– ) didn’t just create a spooky, ethereal, otherworldly puzzle-solving experience reminiscent of a collaboration between Clark Ashton Smith and M.C. Escher. They also revolutionized videogame architecture, making first-person narrative the default gamer perspective. Another 85 years from now, literary historians will note that moment as the major paradigm shift on the road to truly interactive storytelling — weird or otherwise.
