The Making of Riven

After the astounding success of Myst, Cyan set about making a more than worthy sequel. Needing to expand, Cyan moved out of their garage setup and into a new building in Spokane, Washington, and upgraded their workstations. Robyn set to work creating a haunting new soundtrack, and the team spent four years crafting another masterpiece continuing the story set in the events of Myst: The Book of Atrus. It was an astounding success, and is still loved and prized by Myst fans worldwide.
