The good news is that I come to Riven, and for that matter the entire Myst universe, with fresh eyes. I didn't grow up as a PC gamer, but I was always envious of friends who hibernated for weeks on end, only surfacing to espouse the virtues of Myst. With its equally-praised followup Riven now an iOS download, I eagerly threw my hat into the ring.
Good news if you live in New Zealand. Not only can you download Final Fantasy: All The Bravest right now, but you also get first dibs on nabbing Riven, the sequel to the legendary graphic adventure Myst. Those Kiwis! They always get all the good stuff first.
According to a recent interview with Modojo, Myst co-creator Rand Miller revealed that Riven will soon be lighting up many an iPad screen. For those of us that have found ourselves lost in those atmospheric puzzle worlds, this is most welcome news.
