Riven - The Sequel to Myst

Riven - The Sequel to Myst was, like its predecessor, a first-person point and click adventure game in which the player explores immersive environments depicted through a large series of computer generated stills using mouse clicks for movement or to manipulate objects within reach. The objective was achieved by operating mechanical contraptions and deciphering codes and symbols discovered in the surroundings.

It was the sequel to Myst and second in the series eveloped by Cyan Worlds, it was initially published by Red Orb Entertainment, a division of Broderbund. It was distributed on five compact discs and released on October 31, 1997, in North America; it was later released on a single DVD-ROM on August 17, 1998, with improved audio and a fourteen-minute "making-of" video.

Development of Riven  took more than three years and to create a visual style distinct from that of Myst, director Robyn Miller and his brother, producer Rand Miller recruited Richard Vander Wende (former Aladdin production designer)  as a co-director.
