Re: Gehn's office

Also the motif on the pillar in the original is highly reflective where in the new version its more matte.

Re: Playable 233?

I have an idea, how about those who've played Riven to death request it by PM so its not readily available to anyone, only the die-hards on these boards. This way you could limit the demo being seen to the general public. Edit: Or alternately, you could puzzle lock it with an answer only those who'v...

Tay Expanded Saga Concept

So if anyone happened to catch my post on the Cyan forums here , I threw out a few brainstorms for potential Myst tie-in games. One of which I decided to develop further, being my concept for Blade: Empire of Myst. I ended up doing this map: Tay Map This PDF of a journal which I updated ...and this ...

Re: Riven Actors

I still think live action is always better when it comes to the kind of games Myst are. 3d animated characters have never worked for me because they're either overly expressive or under-expressive. This is okay for games like Skyrim with more everyday characters, but even then there are times where ...

Re: Final game title?

Yes but a lot of people don't even know about Riven. I think keeping "RIVEN" as the primary title is going to attract the most new players. RealRiven seems like its made with nostalgia in mind. I'd want the game to have the same impact it did 20 years ago and for that you need a title and ...

Re: Riven Actors

I'd imagine Cyan still has the original 1997 source videos. I don't think video quality would be THAT different in the last 18 years. Could you guys ask them? John Keston's acting is irreplaceable, especially with all the nuance in his facial expressions.

Playable 233?

So I realize that there are no more Myst games when being a rabid fan is slightly problematic. Craving Myst right now and I was thinking after having seen those GORGEOUS SCREENSHOTS that maybe you could release the 233 demo on the site like you did with Prison Island? It would satiate my hunger for ...

Re: Final game title?

Personally, as a graphic designer, I NEVER liked the way realMyst/realRiven looked. Its an asymmetrical logo that lacks the sense of power Riven conveys. Just find any logo of Riven circa 1997 and you'll see how effective it is at conveying that badass sense of pure cool. realRiven when written that...

Suggestion: Interview with the Visionaries

I brought this up completely spontaneously in the chat feed today, but I think it would be really great to get an indepth video interview with Robyn Miller and Richard Vander Wende, the two co-directors for Riven. It was Robyn's story that became the basis for Riven and Richard Vander Wende was the ...
