The Starry Expanse Project (also known as simply Starry Expanse or sometimes realRiven) is an official fan project to remake the game Riven: The Sequel to Myst in real time 3D.
The original Riven was a very highly regarded puzzle adventure that was essentially an interactive slideshow of 2-dimensional pictures that changed based on where a person clicked their mouse. The Starry Expanse Project is working on creating a fully 3D interactive world while paying fastidious attention to the source material. The devs have done a fantastic job so far, building a beautiful and mysterious world full of awe and mystery, that plays like a first person puzzle adventure, but still feels authentically ‘Riven’.
If you’re a big fan of Riven or Myst, we’d really recommend checking out Ethereon too, but for a fully satisfying return to the wonderful world of Riven, you’ll certainly want to check out The Starry Expanse Project – made for Riven fans by Riven fans.
