Riven: The Sequel To Myst
View ending sequences:
Quickly press L2(5), R2(2) at the Cyanlogo when it appears while starting the game.
Hint: Photo on cliff:
In Riven, after you have advanced to a decent pointin the game, go to the chamber where you first appeared in thegame. In that area, go to the edge of the cliff facing the holographroom and the first transport. Look down the cliff and you willsee rocks and the water. In the upper-left side of the screen,in the cliff, is a photograph of two "MYSTerious" children.Those are Robyn Miller's children.
Hint: Jungle secrets:
When you change to Disc 3 you should be at a pointwhere all the trees are cut down. Find the path that leads tothe gate. Open it and start to walk. As soon as you go under thefirst tree, look to your left. You should see a giant dagger stickingup out of the ground. Walk down and you will find another rollingball thing. Remember to note what the symbol is and what soundit makes. Return to the path and start walking forwards again.When you reach the two pathways, go right. As you walk down youshould see a giant fish head. Approach and inspect the head andyou will find nothing. However, back on the pathway you shouldsee two lamps. Go until all you can see is the top part. On thevery top there is a small disc. Push it and see what happens.
Go to the 233rd Age (Gehn's house) after trapping Gehnthere. Go down the ladder to Gehn's bedroom. Go up to a sort ofround cage thing (the "holo-projector") and look inthe rocks in front of you through the window. There should bea human there.
Hint: Gehn's face:
After you break the lens at the end of the game, lookclosely at Atrus. For a brief moment a face will appear. Thisalso happens at the start of Riven, when Atrus holds up the Linkingbook to Riven. This was intentional, so that it felt like Gehnwas watching you from the very beginning.
Hint: Name written in rock:
Go to the workshop island (Disc 1). After solving theboiler puzzle, go to the small balcony that has the frog trap.Climb down the ladder. At the bottom, face the ladder so thatyou are one screen away from being directly at the ladder. Inthe upper left corner is the word "Alex" written inthe rock.
Hint: The "deleted" book press:
There was a book press on Crater Island (where Gehnmakes his books), by the ladder up to his "house" (whichwas locked at the start). It was removed during the game's development,but still can be found. Face the boiler controls and click inthe upper left hand corner, on the pump. You should now see anangled picture of the nice view to the left of the boiler. Lookdown towards the left side and you will see the upper part ofthe book press. Another way to see it is to walk a bit back onthe catwalk and turn towards the boiler room. It is difficultto find, but it is there. If you look up, you will also be ableto see it, just even more blurred.
Hint: Hidden faces:
At the start of the game, leave Temple Island and thenreturn. Go to where you started. Next, go to the bottom of thestaircase and look down to the right. Two faces are in the top-left.To find the other three, rotate the Gate Room (rotating room)until you can enter from the passage under the gate. Go underthe gate, and immediately after you do that, on the right sideof the screen, you will see three faces. You will only see themif you can enter the room from the place you are in.
For more hidden faces, step outside the cage where you start thegame. Turn left, and look up. One face is just to the left oflower center, hidden in the rocks. The other is in the lower rightcorner.
More hidden faces can be seen on Temple Island, after going underthe chained wood gate. The passage to Gateway room at other endmust be open. Look along the right side of the screen. The threechildren's faces are Rand Miller's daughters.
