Video game enthusiasts are witnessing a real invasion of remakes and remakes of all kinds, to which now another one is added that will delight fans of graphic adventures of the late 90s .
We’re talking about Riven , the sequel to Myst (still viewable on Amazon , among other things ), a video game very close to graphic adventures, developed by Cyan Worlds and published by Red Orb Entertainment in 1997.
The sequel in question was directed by Robyn and Rand Miller and Richard Vander Wende, with a style very similar to that of the first game and far from products like Monkey Island and the like. .
Now, as also reported by Gematsu , Riven is about to make a comeback, with a makeover aimed at making the game known even to those who have never heard of it.
Cyan has now announced a full remake of Riven , although neither platforms nor release date have been announced at the moment.
Unlike the original, the Riven remake will be completely traversable in three-dimensional space , and therefore no longer fixed screens.
«Riven is one of the most popular games in Cyan’s history. We didn’t want to deal with it lightly or frivolously. Cyan is a small independent studio. We wanted to be sure that we could tackle such a difficult, expensive and complicated undertaking, and to do it well “, the team announced.
The Starry Expanse team helped kickstart this project, which is not an update or upgrade, but a modern makeover that required a significant investment of resources.
Riven is the name of the Age in which most of the game takes place. In the original adventure, the player was asked to click on objects and directions in pre-rendered screens with various FMVs to serve as a side dish, being remembered for his very complex puzzles .
Speaking of remakes, just a few days ago CD Projekt announced that it was working on that of the first and historic The Witcher .
