Fastest selling “point ’n’ click” video game sequel

Riven, the sequel to Myst, became the top-selling game of 1997, even though it was only released on 29 October of that year. It sold almost 1.5 million copies in three months, making it the fastest-selling “point ’n’ click” sequel ever. Riven’s success was recognised at Bafta’s first Interactive Entertainment Awards in 1998, where it had the most nominations of any media: In Sound, Moving Images and Design.
