The Riven remake, with new content and VR support in Unreal Engine 5, promises ‘an homage to its roots and a leap into the future’



The remake of Riven, the sequel to Myst—which was actually called Riven: The Sequel to Myst when it first arrived in 1997 but is apparently now just called Riven—is set to arrive later this year with a “meticulous, from-the-ground-up” do-over that promises new puzzles, an expanded story, and of course the trademark Myst aesthetic all tarted up in Unreal Engine 5.

Riven was more technologically advanced that Myst, but still played in basically the same way: Clicking on the screen snapped players to different static images, sometimes dotted with little animated bits, where they’d mash buttons, twiddle knobs, and otherwise dick around with obtuse puzzles, trying to figure out how to open a door, activate a thing, or otherwise move the action forward.
