Q: Are you working on a remake of Riven?

A: Yes.

Q: Is it a remaster or a from-the-ground-up modern remake?

A: It is a modern remake.

Q: Is this remake point-and-click only like the original Riven was, or will it be traversable in 3D space?

A: The remake of Riven will be fully traversable in 3D space. Any other supported navigation methods will be announced at a later date.

Q: Why did this take so long? It’s been 25 years!

A: Riven is one of the most highly regarded games in Cyan’s history. We didn’t want to approach it lightly or frivolously. Cyan is a small indie studio. We wanted to make sure we could take on such a difficult, costly and complicated endeavor – and do it well.

Q: Is this the Starry Expanse Project?

A: No, this is a from-the-ground-up remake of Riven from Cyan. However, the Starry Expanse team did assist in kicking off this project. See our blog post here for more details on that.

Q: Which platforms is it coming to, when it is coming out, what are the system requirements… etc.?

A: We don’t have information to share about that yet.

Q: If I purchased a copy of the original Riven, will I get a free copy of this remake?

A: Thank you for your support over the years! But, no. This new Riven is not an update or upgrade, it is a modern from-the-ground-up remake that has required (and will continue to require) a substantial investment of resources.


Happy Gaming!

YES! I've been waiting for this for almost two decades. Riven is one of the most beautiful games I've ever played, and, in my honest opinion, superior to Myst in every aspect. But it was made in an era when state-of-the art graphics got outdated in a few years. Thank you so much for the news, Ana. And yes, that last question was very funny.

I'm so glad they're remaking the game. I've replayed the original several times, but it will be wonderful to wander everywhere in the game.


Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures.

This is great news, but I must wonder if URU is on the "To-do" list. I still think that after all these years it's one of the mostbeautiful games ever.

That is exciting news Ana! Riven was such a wonderful game...I still have the original version. Maybe I can still play it on my old computer!

Oh, this is awesome news! Thank you, Ana!

I tried a replay on my iPad when that came out, but Riven requires notetaking, for me, so playing it from the sofa really didn't work.

I did think it was funny that I had to buy a new PC to play Riven when it came out (my PC froze long enough for a bathroom break everytime I hit one of those spinning domes), and I was able to play it on my iPad mini.

That said, I will probably have to buy a new PC to play this one too. My PC is pretty good, i7/16GB RAM/SSD drive--but it's small form factor so I can't fit in a good video card. Even for adventure games, that's starting to be a problem--I'm pretty much limited to old games on GOG and HOG these days. Can't play the new Syberia for that reason, which was very sad.
