Obduction From Myst & Riven Creator Gets Happy New Year Trailer


Obduction from the creators of both Myst and Riven has received a new trailer to celebrate the new year.

Obduction is being developed by Cyan, the award-winning developer of Riven and Myst. With Obduction, the developer "harkens back to the spirit of Cyan’s earlier games Myst and Riven". The game is an all-new, real-time, first-person adventure, and is being developed for Windows and MacOS.

Obduction uses the same framework as Myst and Riven

According Cyan, "Obduction resurrects that incredible feeling of suddenly finding yourself in the middle of a new world to explore, discover, solve, and become part of".

Check out the new trailer for the game below:

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 begins with the player being abducted, and focuses on exploring everything around you - just like Myst and Riven.

Obduction’s experience supplies what every good storyteller does: a very personal window into a much larger world. Obduction begins with… well, an abduction –your abduction. On a crystal clear, moon-lit night, a curious, organic artifact drops from the sky and inexplicably whisks you away across the universes to who-knows-where (or when, or why).

And, as anyone who ever played Myst or Riven knows, exploring everything around you allows you to read between the lines and to begin to answer your questions. Why is there an old, abandoned farmhouse – complete with white picket fence – in the middle of an alien landscape? You’ll find out. From this point on the story becomes your story.
