To get to Gehn's world, you must be able to solve the Gate Room puzzlefirst. To
solve this hard puzzle you first must click 4 times on thebutton in front of the
gate room. Then go to the locked gate by going left when you are looking at the
bridge. Even though the gate is locked, you can get past it by going under it.
Go forward and you will see the gate room and another passage area. When you get
to the switch, turn it on and turn around. Go forward until you see a lever and
another button. First pull down the lever then press the button 2 times. Go
forward to the other passage and do the same thing again. Go forward to the next
passage and press the button 2 times again. This time when you press the button
2 times, the gate is open and you can get to the fire marble dome.
At the start of the game, leave Temple Island and then return. Go to where you
started. Next, go to the bottom of the staircase 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 under
the gate, and immediately after you do that, on the right side of the screen,
you will see three faces. You will only see them if you can enter the room from
the place you are in.
For more hidden faces, step outside the cage where you start the game. Turn
left, and look up. One face is just to the left of lower center, hidden in the
rocks. The other is in the lower right corner.
More hidden faces can be seen on Temple Island, after going under the chained
wood gate. The passage to Gateway room at other end must be open. Look along the
right side of the screen. The three children's faces are Rand Miller's
Go to Temple Island, the island you started from. Go to the room with the Whark
statues and the temple itself. Make it so you are looking at the room from the
exit (where the Maglav is found) There is a hidden switch in the left side, on
one of the pillars. Press it.
Go to where you make the 'sub' descend into the water next to the village by the
lagoon. Go three or four screens toward the village (until you are looking down
a ladder). Then, turn right. You should see a wire-frame view of the lagoon.
Go to the underwater viewing room on Plateau Island. Sit in the chair and hit
the button to face the window. Pull the left hand lever and then look down at
the view screen (the one used to spy on Catherine). Finally, click on the small

Go to Ghen's 233rd world (the one you go to using the Fire-Marble Domes). Go to
his bedroom and face the wall with the red tapestry and the star on it. Click on
the D'ni symbol for 5 in the exact center of the star to see the Easter Egg
While you are on Jungle Island, go into the jungle. Take the elevator up to the
'second' floor of the jungle and start walking up towards the control throne
past the dome. Up about the middle of the stairs leading to the control throne,
turn around and face the dome. To your left, down on the path underneath, you
can see some lights by the side of the road. Click on the lamp farthest away
from the dome to see the last Easter Egg.
After you break the lens at the end of the game, look closely at Atrus. For a
brief moment a face will appear. This also happens at the start of Riven, when
Atrus holds up the Linking book to Riven. This was intentional, so that it felt
like Gehn was watching you from the very beginning.
Use the following steps to activate the Easter Eggs in the game. Note: Click the
places just once. You will know if you have done so when the cursor disappears
for a second.
At the start of the game, exit your cage, go towards the stairs, turn right and
look over the cliff. Click on the unconscious guy.
Go to Boiler Island. Enter Gehn's lab, find the little chest of drawers where
Gehn keeps bird's eggs. Click on the little orange one.
Solve the Animal Stone puzzle on Jungle Island. Go to the Moiety Age and in your
prison, click on the little bowl on the table.
On Jungle Island, go to the submarine. Travel in it to the place with the five
switches. Look out of the window there and you will see the sub, back on the
cliff. Click on it.
Go to Survey Island by taking the Maglev from Boiler Island. Note: You might
have to turn the Maglev around and then get out. Go to the room with a long
handle. Pull it, and a lift will appear from the floor. Do not go into the lift,
but from where you are, click on the little star on the top of the lift.
Finally, take the Maglev from Jungle Island to Temple Island, or travel there by
linking book. When you are next to the blue button near the Maglev station, turn
left. You will see a triangle of light. If you look very closely, you will see
the letters RAWA, the nickname of one of the Riven programmers, Richard A.
Watson. Click on the letters to activate the remaining Easter Eggs in the game,
