Riven X is the rebirth of the best episode in the MYST saga for Mac OS X. The same content, the same wonder, a brand-new engine. Although RivenÃ¢?Â¢ was released in 1997 for both Mac OS and Windows, it was never updated to be a native Mac OS X application. With Intel Macs becoming dominant meaning the loss of the Classic environment, something had to be done in order for future generations of Mac users to enjoy Riven. Thanks to the work of dedicated individuals, in particular Tito Dal Canton, the Riven data files were reversed engineered, thus paving the way for a new engine.
What's new in this version:
Version 0.9.8 addresses the missing sound effects and music issue in 0.9.7 and fixes a large number of bugs and includes over a year of, admittedly sparse, development. In particular, it fixes the QuickTime version check issues people have reported on recent versions of Snow Leopard.
