WELCOME TO THE RIVEN EASTER EGGS PAGE!
I will warn you!
There will be numerous pictures of the easter eggs and all information on how to find them!
So if you do not want to see it all spoiled at (almost) once, you shouldn't visit this site!
That's okay, I'll proceed [

Joseph Grabko got in touch and told me that the mysterious spots
actually can unlock all the eggs in one swipe. He also pointed at the fact that you can access the game's console by typing "b3hn" and pressing Ctrl + Tab while in-game. And if you're interested in more secret stuff like this, he found the information on this page
. Thank you so much Joseph! And great to see that there still are people out there interested in this epic game, almost 20 years from when I launched this web site!

Paul S. From La Turballe (French Brittany a.k.a. Bretagne) has contacted me, and told me that these easter eggs work perfectly with the iPad version of the game
. Thank you Paul for letting us know! :-)
I cannot confirm this myself, but Phil J from North Carolina, USA sent me the following (thank you Phil!):
You mention on your Riven Easter egg page passive views of the missing book press in some of the Boiler Island scenes, but in the iPad version of Riven, a fully working book press is the seventh Easter egg that is required to complete the Easter egg achievement medal. As you walk from the boiler to the ladder leading up to the balcony entrance to the frog trap, one step before clearing the rocky ridge between you and the ladder (the point at which you would be in front of the book press if it were there), at the right side of the base of the first triangular rock formation of the ridge is a smaller triangular shaped "toe" of the larger formation. The top apex of that triangle is the hot spot that makes the book press visible. The wheel of the press works the press, but touching any other part makes it disappear again.

Ten years have passed, and you good folks keep visiting. Welcome to you all! You're spending an average of five to seven minutes here and that makes me glad. I am still baffled by the fact that this page still has some - if not anything else then at least some historical - value. It was a great, and ground-breaking game and needs to be remembered. Thank you again!

Hi again. What I said last year still holds, but I would just like to thank you good people out there who are still visiting my page. Your continuous inquiries surely shows how long lasting this magnificent game truly is! Kudos to Cyan, and kudos to you, who are still finding enjoyment in Riven!

This site has exsisted for a long time now, and I am still getting a lot of visitors here, for which I am very glad. But time is not on my side and I have to "close down" for any inquiries from now on regarding the easter eggs and this great game. Don't worry -
this site will still remain as it is for a long time yet
, but I simply don't have the time to answer the e-mails I get from you, my fellow Riven fans. I will also stop updating the site.
I do still hope you are yet able to fully enjoy this site and this wonderful game! I am truly sorry that I haven't been able to get back to a few of you who have written to me in the past and I hope you can forgive me.
Keep it up my fellow "Riveneers"! And good egg-hunting!

And the Riven Movie Snoop tool has been right in front of my nose all the time (see last entry below). How fortunate that George Rypysc III was so kind to send me an e-mail regarding this. You can (of course) find it at the great pages of
The Riven Guild
, where they have a
. There are also a lot of other nice tools & gadgets for our beloved game there. Thanks George! :)

A lot of you good folks out there have been asking me where to find the Riven Movie Snoop tool. Yesterday I dug up the link for the Macintosh version. I couldn't seem to find the Windows version of it, sorry...But
here's the Mac version

Sixth easter egg found!
, the little genius, contacted me and told me that he had found a sixth egg. This has been confirmed by
Richard A. Watson
go check it out
! As Gregg does, I wonder if there's any more eggs 'out there'? If there is one for each island, then we still need one on Prison Island...
Shame on Richard by the way, for forgetting to tell me about this egg, when I wrote to Cyan to hear if I'd found them all... Oh well... Surprises are best when they're not revealed... :)
And furthermore, Gregg told me a few other nice things that I hadn't discovered: That you can also
turn Gehn's song back again
, and that you may see the book press
from another point of view
in the game. Big cheers and thanks to Greg for having us all dust off the game and put it into the CD tray again!!

New look. Just thought it would be nice with a fresh look. It's been almost a whole year now. Research around the net still indicates that this should be
the only 100% comprehensive easter egg page
for Riven fans, as it was the first to reveal all of the eggs in the game (plus the additional things). If you are reading this, I bid you welcome. Hope you enjoy your stay! Be sure to check out two of the best sites around: "
The Riven Guild
" and "
The Riven Unofficial Home Page

for you folks with the Sony Playstation version of Riven.
I have received information from
Richard A Watson
. He tells me that the easter-eggs you see here indeed are the only ones in the game, so we do not need to worry about the extra
secret hidden spots
wrote to me about
the book press that never made the game
- but it actually did!
