Obduction is an all-new, real-time, first-person adventure that harkens back to the spirit of Cyan's earlier games Myst and Riven. Obduction resurrects that incredible feeling of suddenly finding yourself in the middle of a new world to explore, discover, solve, and become part of.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the launch of Myst, one of the best-selling computer games in history. Myst was an exploration through a landscape of dramatically realistic images tied together to create an experience that was described as "becoming your world." The Myst name is widely recognized as uniquely defining a new kind of gaming - amazingly immersive worlds where the point is to understand your environment rather than test your reflexes. The Obduction project will take what Cyan knows about creating deeply immersive worlds and apply it to an entirely new game with fantastic scenery, incredible architecture, compelling story, and exceptional challenges.

Obduction will be built with the same framework that made Cyan's earlier games such a wonderful experience: stunning landscapes, deep storyline, engaging characters, dramatic soundscapes, and challenging yet intuitive puzzles. Obduction is an entirely new property, delivered using one of the most powerful game development technologies available today. Obduction is an adventure game for the new millennium that stays true to the concepts that made the genre great.

Obduction developer Cyan Worlds has announced that the long-awaited virtual reality version of its adventure game follow-up to the Myst series will be launching next week. According to UploadVR, on October 31, those who have purchased the already-released game will automatically receive access to a version compatible with the Oculus Rift.

Obduction was originally meant to launch with its Oculus Rift compatibility on the same day, however the VR version was delayed shortly before the non-VR release to receive some extra “optimisations and UI polish”. Backers of Obduction’s successful US$1.3 million Kickstarter campaign will get access to the game’s Oculus Rift version before everyone else.

As Cyan states in a Kickstarter update:

“Obduction’s 23,000 Kickstarter backers will receive access to the VR version a few days early. Details will be provided in an update from Cyan being sent to all Backers this week.”

Though the Oculus Rift is the only mentioned platform in Obduction’s VR update (with the VR version of the game eventually being available through Oculus Home) there’s no mention on whether the game will be playable in VR through Steam, or whether it will come to other VR platforms in the future.
