Mat is right. The only MYST-MO connection is that Mike was given a copy of Myst by a friend (MYST was released in 1993, TSODE in 1994). He played and like it and got interested in 3D modelling. The first result of his 3D work was the TSODE material.
The next result will be his Sonic Reality project, I suppose...
To Myst: Robyn Miller was doing the soundtrack for both Myst and its sucessor Riven. The soundtracks are available on CD from Virgin, they are excellent! If you haven't played Myst and Riven yet, I highly recommend to do it , well if you like that kind of "game".
I also recommend to keep an eye on Cyan http://www.cyan.com/ . It is now official that they are working on another ground-breaking game, no successor to Myst, but situated in the same universe (that of the "D'ni"); codename: MUDPIE. It'll be in first person realtime 3D and perhaps support massively multiplayer via broadband internet access. However, that are just rumours. Another rumour says that they're working on a realtime 3D version of MYST besides MUDPIE.
Robyn Miller has left Cyan some time ago, so he probably won't do the music for MUDPIE. It would be cool if Mike would compose it, but apparently it is done by Tim Larkin from Cyan.
If you haven't noticed yet, I'm a "hardcore" M/R/D (Myst/Riven/D'ni) fan (I even learn the fictional D'ni language and created a D'ni font, check out http://members.friendfactory.com/jehon/ )
Of course, I'm a hardcore MO fan, too.
