FROM MYST TO RIVEN: THE CREATIONS AND INSPIRATIONS

Richard Kadrey, Rand Miller (Foreword), Robyn Miller (Foreword)



 

When Rand and Robyn Miller decided to create Myst, a CD-ROM game featuring a visually entrancing world and a non-violent, cunningly devised labyrinth of a story for players to get lost in, they figured their main reward would be a job well done. They had no idea that it would make history as the most successful multimedia computer game ever sold. Now, with the release of Riven - the sequel to Myst - eager fans old and new will be astounded to see the Millers' latest creation - an even larger and more staggeringly beautiful world that storywise carries on where Myst left off.


In From Myst to Riven: The Creations & Inspirations, these fantasy game worlds are brought to life in a way that has never been seen before. Rand and Robyn, in addition to Riven's entire creative team at Cyan, Inc., have opened their doors - and minds - to allow a unique behind-the-scenes look at the making of a phenomenon. Including insights into story development and D'ni mythology and featuring every stage of visual and technical development, as well as the cutting-edge computer graphics that are seen in the games, From Myst to Riven illuminates in rich detail the inner workings of the inspired minds responsible for what critics have called a "contagious multimedia sensation."
