Riven: The Sequel To Myst is about to get an official “from scratch” remake

The developers of Myst Cyan have revealed that they are working on a “from scratch” remake for its sequel, Riven. The original puzzle adventure was released on PC on October 31, 1997, and Cyan announced their remake exactly 25 years later. The new version of Riven will adopt the free 3D motion of the Myst remake, but there are very few other details beyond that. Watch the very short announcement trailer below.

Developer Cyan announced a remake of Riven on the 25th anniversary of the original game.

The Riven remake has its roots in a fan-organized effort, The Starry Night Project, which began 13 years ago. “We spoke secretly with the Starry Expanse team a few years ago about the exciting news that Cyan finally has the resources to tackle the Riven remake,” Cyan said in a statement. Open letter to fans of the game. “Together, we have reached an agreement that allows us to reference the core parts of their effort to kick-start our development.” A member of the Starry Expanse Project joined Cyan to work on the remake.

Cyan has posted a FAQ on their website with few details but not much to go on right now. I have to put my hands up and admit that I never played Myst properly until last year’s remake. It’s an interesting, confusing time, but you can tell the game is 30 years old even with the graphics tweaked and the addition of 3D motion. However, more recent games have been remade – look at you, The Last Of Us – so what’s the harm in a few classic puzzle adventures like Myst and Riven getting a proper fix? I’m eager to play the Riven remake after dealing with its predecessor.

Cyan has yet to reveal when Riven will return to PC. I’ll let you know when there’s more to share. In the meantime, you can always get the original Riven on Steam or GOG for £4/$6/€6.
