ooh, pretty hi-res for an icon. Hopefully get one tat big for myst (hint hint)
But, yeah, what;s the consensu on that? It's similar to the myst icon, which I like, but ONLY works for the myst icon. (Look at me, obsessing about the tiniest thing!)

After reading this thread i am still confused. Chogon says there are no plans yet for iPad, while mystdee says it is upcoming. So my questions are:

1. Will there be an iPad version? I'd like to know if should wait for it, or start playing iPhone riven ASAP.

2. Will iPad riven, if it is ever released, have 608 by 392 size for its renders?

3. If I play iPhone riven on my iPad, will it display 608 by 392 or 480 by 320?

Chogon said they haven't looked yet into the iPad version. The iPad version is coming, but I wouldn't think it's anytime soon.

No, it will use HD renders, which is the whole point of Riven HD.

There was no one thing that was done to solve multiple and non-full screen movies in Riven for the iPhone. With some we were able to combine several movies into one bigger full screen movie - like throwing a lever that raised a bridge. Other places we were able to make animation strips that we flip through (which can be done very efficiently using the GPU on the iPhone). And other places we did something completely different.

As far as re-rendering all the Riven assets to a higher resolution, that is not possible as the machines and the software that created the Riven images and movies are long gone (and there is no higher res images and movies stuck in some vault somewhere). But even if we could re-render everything, it would certainly blow the 2 Gig app limit out of the water.
And we do take advantage, albeit not fully, of the retina display (as I explained elsewhere).

As far as an iPad only or Universal app, we still discussing that.

In this version of the Riven app, there is nothing specific done for the retina display. However, the images are in the original 608 by 392 size that is re-fitted by the iOS to 480 by 320. So, on retina displays it does look slightly better because the iOS does take advantage of that.
Riven HD: We haven't start looking at that yet, so I don't know yet.
Riven Universal App: To have both sets of assets would make the app too large but we haven't started looking at that yet, so the real answer is: I don't know yet.

If you'd like a mini-gehn I'd be more than happy to convert his song to an iDevice compatible format.

As far as I have understood from the posts here, there are no HD renders... And I'm still looking for an official answer to my 3 questions.. because I would like to play riven this x-mas, but preferably on iPad :)

The released version works nicely on iPad although it is not in HD with this version, you can play it at X2 size which makes the image larger, but slightly less pretty. I still think it's awesome, personally, and have enjoyed playing on both devices.
Here's the same 2 images Chogon posted taken with my iPad Keep in mind that the screenshots are much bigger than the actual screen and the screen looks tons better than this :

Some great Twitter buzz going on for Riven! Just for a search on Cyan Worlds on Twitter, I've seen about 60 new posts about Riven in the past day. Cyan, it might be a good idea to tweet something for us to retweet! :)
