Become Immersed in a Challenging World of Adventure
My worst fears have been realized. The damage is more extensive than
previously imagined. I must act while there is still time. I must find
someone...to send to Riven.

apart by age-old conflicts...where secrets lie hidden at every turn...and
nothing is as it seems. You must search. You must explore. You must summon
every spark of intellect and intuition.
Only then will you learn the truth about this troubled land and its
inhabitants. You must let Riven become your world - before an entire world is
explore a vast and complex world
reclusive beings and mysterious creatures

reclusive, afraid of strangers, and they speak a strange, incomprehensible
"You'll visit 7 different sections of Riven, and many of the puzzles (as in
Myst) relate to gaining access to those areas, whereas others help you to piece
together the story. As in Myst, success depends on keen observation and close
attention to detail. Be systematic, explore (noting symbols and sounds) and try

this story can end. Enjoy!"
