I'm having a VERY good time playing Riven whenever I have some time. We got finished early at work today, hee hee, so I've been having fun this evening. I still haven't gotten as far as I was previously, but I'm making all new notes, because I was "stuck" before, so I'm missing something.
Here are just some screen shots as a sampler of what it's like.
First are some of the animals seen on the beach of the village island. These are called "Sunners."
For transportation between the islands you can call and ride these cute little trams.
Here is a view of the ocean and what I call the power plant island from the edge of the gold dome.
And finally for tonight, here is the inside of a puzzle room that is quite ingeniously tricky. Fortunately, I had figured it out before and made good notes on my previous games.
Riven was released in 1997 and still holds up as one of the best puzzle games, with graphics that were way ahead of its time, and complex puzzles throughout.
Marie and I started it together at her house, and it would be more fun to play it with her, but we'd have to be in the same space. Two heads are much better than one at some of these riddles.
Having fun. Probably wasting serious time.
