Myst Sequel Riven Coming to iPhone

The 7th Guest isn’t the only CD-Rom classic to hit the App Store tonight. Riven: The Sequel to Myst, is now available for $5.99 for the iPhone. Click here to download it, and hang on for a roller-coaster ride– literally, this game has a few roller-coasters in it.

The Myst series has been lauded for years as the greatest adventure games ever made, though early LucasArts fans might have something to say about that. Now the sequel to Myst, Riven, is officially coming to iDevices soon.

There are several iPhone adventure game ports at this point, with the superlative Beneath a Steel Sky, Broken Sword, and original Myst dominating the landscape. But we’re willing to make room for one more, considering the success Cyan has had in bringing the original to iPhone.

A developer said in an email posted to the Myst Online forums, “I’m hoping that Riven will be available by early summer at the latest.” However, he added that the rest of the series would experience legal trouble, so they would have problems releasing those games.
