The Most Anticipated Software Game of 1997 Expected Next Month

Novato, CA, September 16, 1997 -- What's left to say about the sequel to the best selling computer game of all time? When? The Red Orb Entertainment Division of Broderbund Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:BROD) today announced that Riven, the Sequel to Myst, the much-anticipated follow-up to the blockbuster that revolutionized entertainment software, is expected to be available in stores October 31, 1997. The title will be available at both domestic and international retail outlets.
