    Install Windows via bootcamp or VMWare/Parallels and run it on there

    I have a similar question except I will be attempting to run it on a mbp 2.53ghz model and I don't want to add windows to my mac. Would I be able to play the game?

    you could find a ciderized version of the game.
    if not then you have to install windows in some way or another.

    Myst (in the form of RealMyst), Myst III, IV, and V will run on OS X (using Rosetta, because they are PPC games, but they run well with the possible exception of Myst V). You may have to do some fiddling to get Myst III to run with correct sound. The only one lacking is Riven...which is the best one...there's some fan project devoted to recreating Riven on OS X, but I don't think it's complete yet.

    RivenX, as it is called, does work. You are right, it is not complete, but I finished Riven in the last few months on OSX on their latest build.

    Most of the Myst series runs on OSX and does very well. Myst, RealMyst, Riven , Myst III, Myst IV, Myst V.

    Some do my universal binaries

    Riven X 0.8 just came out and it's awesome. The latter part of the game is not yet complete, but the dev expects to be done by the end of summer.

    realMYST and Snow Leopard

    Does not seem to work on a MacBook Pro 10.6.2. It installs but crashes sometime after trying to detect the CDROM (since it notices if it is not in). realMYST is supposed to run in OSX, but of course is quite old and lists 10.1 in the SysReqs. Manual says installer will ask for admin password on installation in OSX, but it did not. Any help out there?

    Looks like the folks on scummvm plan to include support for Myst and Riven:
