It’s not over yet
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.
