Remember all those frustrating hours trying to figure out what the hell to do in Myst?

Well, get ready to relive those frustrating moments on TV, as Hulu has apparently landed the streaming rights to an upcoming show based on the classic 90s game.

According to Deadline, the show is penned by Divergent writer Evan Daugherty.

Myst blends elements of science fiction and fantasy. It will explore the origins of the island of Myst from the game where a man wakes up on a mystery island with absolutely no idea who he is, where is, or how he got there.

Not much to go on there, but you know, it is Myst.

The show was first greenlit in October of last year, when Legendary TV & Digital Media singed a deal with Cyan Worlds (Myst's original developers). If you were wondering, the show will likely feature a tie-in game.

“Cyan’s goal in working with Legendary is not just to create a compelling TV drama but to develop a true transmedia product that will include a companion video game that extends the story across both media,” Cyan said last year. “Seventy percent of tablet owners use their device while watching TV at least several times a week. Cyan sees the potential to push the boundaries of interactive storytelling to a new level.”

Myst was first released in 1993. In the game, players naviagte a mysterious island called Myst. It's a puzzle game, and players must find clues to progress. Myst was the best-selling PC game of all time until it was dethroned by The Sims in 2002.
