I'm still having a difficult time coming to terms with the fact that Myst is 20 years old. That's impossible! What I can believe, however, is that Cyan's new adventure game Obduction has raised its requisite $1.1 million on Kickstarter. These are some talented folks, after all.

There's still time left before the crowdfunding campaign closes on November 16, although I'm not entirely sure the company will meet its stretch goals. At $1.3M, we're getting Oculus Rift support and localization (French, Italian, German, and Spanish), while $1.7M would guarantee an extra world and Roadtrip mode, a strange sort of online cooperative mode.

With less than 48 hours to go, the pressure is on. It would be nice to see the localization get funded since Cyan plans to also allow fan translation via open-source subtitle files.

The Darkest Dungeon gods were kind to me

Hot off its huge Kickstarter success, Darkest Dungeon is already in a playable-enough state to have a demo at PAX East 2014. Although the demo was only a short snippet of what's to come, it was easy to get a sense of the them...more

Punch frogs, get paid: New Curses 'N Chaos trailer

We got a brief look at the new Tribute Games joint, Curses 'N Chaos, at PAX East. It's a pared-down, arcade-like action game about two players cooperating to clear waves of foes before the timer hits zero. Super simple, but ...more
