Riven Cheats and Links

Okay, first of all, there aren't any trainers or hex editors for Riven. You don't even have a character in Riven, much less any stats, skills, hit points, or even an inventory you might conceivably want to edit. I don't really have any idea what people who email me asking for a "Riven character editor" are really even looking for.

The only way to really cheat in this game is to look up the solution to a puzzle rather than figuring it out yourself--and frankly, if you're going to do that, why would you play this clunky old puzzle-adventure classic in the first place? Take away the puzzles and Riven is nothing but a pretty, exceedingly boring slideshow of some exotic island somewhere. You might as well look at Aunt Edith's photo albums of her trip to Sumatra.

Anyway, so there's not much cheat to be had on Riven, but if you need a puzzle solution or just want to learn more about this game, here are a few good links for you:

Other Riven Pages:

Universal Hints System is a great place to get a spoiler for one specific puzzle you're stuck on without accidentally ruining any of the rest of the game--they have their walkthrough uniquely structured to reveal only one hint at a time.

Here is the official Riven homepage from Cyan Worlds. You can get Riven art, music, screenshots, and patches here.

Myst Obsession is a thorough, useful online resource on all of the Myst games, with screenshots, wallpaper and fan art, and a forum.

Myst Community is another good online resource, with a separate Riven forum as well as general discussion of the series.

The rest of these links aren't related to Riven, but you may enjoy them anyway...
