According to a post on the Myst Online forums, an iPhone port of Riven, the sequel to Myst [App Store], should be available "by early summer at the latest."

Myst is a point and click adventure puzzle game first published for the Mac in 1993. Loaded on a CD-ROM, Myst was absolutely revolutionary at the time. We enjoyed the iPhone port in our review, and there's not much reason to think that Riven wouldn't translate to the iPhone just as well.

Riven is set immediately following the events that transpired in Myst and the plot is hard to describe without revealing some spoilers from the original game. It's safe to say if the iPhone port of Myst was your first foray in to the series, you will also enjoy Riven as it was highly praised by critics and comes packed with even more immersive puzzles to get hopelessly stuck on.

Unfortunately it sounds like the rest of the Myst games might not be making it to the iPhone due to technical issues and licensing, but news of Riven joining Myst on the App Store should get any fan of the series excited.

    hmm nice - I didn't get Myst as played a bit on my old Performa Mac and over 1gb was a lot when I had an 8gb phone

    Now have 32gb phone might get Riven though (although both would be really neat on iPad so may hold out for those versions)

    Oh man, I can't keep up with all of this!! Space Miner: Space Ore Bust, Doom II RPG, Giana Sisters and now this! I haven't even finished Myst (or Broken Sword) for that matter! Too many games! :)

    You are welcome. :)

    BTW, I posted this in the forum post, but Uru Live, Cyan's adventure MMO in the D'ni universe, was rereleased today and is now free. If you are a fan of Myst and Riven and haven't played it before, I recommend checking it out. It will definitely tide you over until Riven comes out.

      That's pretty cool--I've never tried it out but it always seemed very interesting. This is the perfect opportunity to try it out!

    In my opinion, Riven is undoubtably the best in the series. This will be a must-buy if it's released.

    Riven was insanely more difficult than Myst... Its really cool that they are bringing more of the Myst series to the App Store! I will skip Myst and Riven - and wait for Myst 3 and later.

    Does the MMO follow the book series? I had a blast reading all 3 of the books. They are a must read for anyone that wants to get the back story and better understand whats going on.

      you have to set the output size numerically (number of pages wide/high) rather than using a fancy drag handle.

    Riven was absolutely fantastic, though much, much harder than Myst.

    Myst and Riven are the only two games that were actually made by Rand and Robyn Miller. The rest of the sequels were made by third party developers, and it shows, as they were not particularly well-received. In other words…who cares about any of the other sequels anyway.

    The first thing I thought of when they announced Myst last year was: Riven! Like others on here, Riven's always been my favorite in the series as well.

    The standalone version is the same as the web version, except that downloading images from the web and image cropping are not supported, and you have to set the output size numerically (number of pages wide/high) rather than using a fancy drag handle. The results are exactly the same.
