Cyan’s Obduction looks exciting and worth supporting

October 22nd - via: macpast.wordpress.com
There are and have been a lot of gaming revival and spiritual successor Kickstarter campaigns worth backing. What makes Obduction exciting, besides the very cool style of the concepts and the pedigree of the developers, Cyan, (Creators of the Myst series) is what I’m hearing from them. The game is said to have a very traditional focus with next-gen visuals (Unreal4 tech should look great) and I trust Cyan on that. They’ve kept their company tight, small and independent on purpose not only to keep development focused but also to build-in some reward for backers of the project. (Read More)

Cyan Incorporated Starts Brand New Kickstarter Project Called “Obduction” In Honor Of The 20th Anniversary Of Classic 1993 CD-ROM Title “Myst”

October 21st - via: retrogamenetwork.com
Let’s face it. In the early 1990s, “Myst” was everywhere, and I mean everywhere. I can’t think of another title that had been released on so a wide array of video game consoles, ever. Everything from computers, to the Saturn, to even the CD-i and 3DO. Needless to say, when the CD-ROM technology became more commonplace, “Myst” took advantage. Now, the creators of the game, “Cyan, Inc.”, have started a brand new Kickstarter project for a spiritual sequel to the game called “Obduction”, in honor of Myst’s 20th anniversary. (Read More)

Ages Beyond Uru: Cyan’s Myst Successor On Kickstarter

October 18th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
It’s not hard to see why once-legendary developers who’ve lost their way flock to Kickstarter. Second chances are rare, especially in an industry where a single dud can sink entire 100-person studios. Rebirths and reinventions, meanwhile, used to be damn near unheard of. But now it’s all possible, and wouldn’t you know it? Everyone you fondly remember from your childhood is coming out of the woodwork. A true Myst revival, however, has been conspicuously absent throughout NostalgiaFest 2013, but then, I suppose it’s only fitting that exploratory, methodical puzzling took its sweet time getting to the scene of its own potential resurgence. So then, what exactly is Obduction? Pretty much what you’d expect: a spiritual sequel to Myst and Riven, powered by shiny Unreal Engine 4 tech. (Read More)

[Sneak Peak] Obduction: Cyan Returns

October 17th - via: readyplayertwo.co.uk
Long ago, when this writer was young, she looked on in envy as her mum pottered about on this ‘MYST’ game. Denied access, she “borrowed” it, and was subsequently lost to an exploration experience like no other. Far from her past favourites such as Mech Warriors 3, and Tomb Raider, MYST offered gameplay that did not rely on violence, and that let you explore and tinker, instead of taking you by the hand into battle. (Read More)
