Hello, I am wondering if you have an ETA for Riven for iPhone and Uru Live. I know that Uru Live is supposed to come back online this year, but I am wondering if you know any more than that. I would also like to know if you have any plans for the rest of the Myst series to be converted so that it runs on the iPhone. I have heard that one of the problems that you have been having with Riven is that the game is too large for the App store. Have you thought about posting Riven as a free game, and then allowing people to buy the full game as an expansion pack through in-app purchases?
