Myst veterans launch Kickstarter for Obduction


6:00 PM on 10.18.2013



Out of all of the studios and developers gaining a second life via Kickstarter, it's honestly surprised me that it's taken this long for Cyan to get in the game. The developers behind the seminal Myst are looking to fund Obduction, a new IP that will draw on some of the same themes from the adventure game classic that's celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. 

In the video above, Rand Miller cites a lack of enthusiasm from publishers and the desire to stay totally independent. Cyan is looking to raise $1.1 million to complete Obduction. That's a lot of money for any developer to ask for but they are looking to release the game in mid-to-late 2015, so that's almost a two-year development cycle which isn't going to be cheap.

Still, the team have raised over $325,000 so far in just 24 hours, so I wouldn't be surprised to see Obduction hit its goal.

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more

Solve your own murder in Why Am I Dead At Sea

You have been murdered, and you are now a ghost. It is up to you to solve the mystery of your own death. No, not like that. No, not like that either. Okay actually, it is sort of like Ghost Trick. It looks like the spirit in...more

Need something free to pass the time? 0h h1 is sort of like binary sudoku

I have always been an unapologetic fan of Minesweeper. I have been playing it for longer than any other single game, and I will be playing it as long as I can imagine. It never changes in any fundamental way, but it always wo...more
