Riven, the sequel to the adventure game classic Myst is getting a remake courtesy of Cyan (of Obduction fame). Though platforms and a release window weren’t confirmed, it did receive a brief announcement trailer, sparse as it is with information. Check it out below.

The developer also posted an FAQ, confirming it is a ground-up modern remake of the classic adventure title. It won’t be point-and-click, with players able to fully traverse the 3D environments. Other navigation methods will be announced at “a later date.”

Also, if you own the original Riven, you will not receive a free copy of the remake. “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.” Further details weren’t provided, but the remake is seemingly a ways off from release.

First released in 1997 for PC and PlayStation One, Riven received significant acclaim due to its aesthetic and puzzles. It was the best-selling game of its launch year, and sold 4.5 million copies by 2001. Stay tuned for more details on the remake in the coming months.
