Speaking of Myst:  these are a series of buttons I made for an app my friend is developing.  I am not at liberty to divulge the nature of the app, nor the intended functions of the buttons, but I can tell you that after a long (pleasant, interesting) discussion about it, he decided against using them, as he felt that they were too abstract for inclusion in a GUI.  This, as we determined, was something that would never have occurred to me, since I have been playing video games with heavily stylized GUIs all my life-  and the series I’ve spent the most time playing tends to drop you in front of beautiful and complicated machines of unknown purpose, and require you to figure out the controls by trial and error…
