The Team Behind Myst Offers Up Obduction on Kickstarter

Twenty years ago, a game called Myst hit the Mac and took off to become one of the bestselling games of all time. It expanded to a variety of platforms, despite the slow and moody game play of an exploratory puzzle mystery. The guys behind Myst followed with Riven, and now they are using Kickstarter to fund a new indie game called Obduction. Their small company, Cyan, will produce it.

And the story?

Another immersive exploratory mystery puzzle game, of course, but in this one you’re abducted to a place across the universe for unknown reasons — reasons that you’ll figure out as you play the game.

You can expect incredible scenes, puzzles, mystery, and a compelling storyline.

I've been writing about the tech industry since the birth of the email newsletter, and I still remember the clacking Mac keyboards from high school -- Apple's seed-planting strategy at work. I'm a big fan of elegant gear and sublime tech, but there's something to be said for turning it all off -- or most of it -- to go outside. Online I like to call out cool stuff on Wicked Cool Bite, share Apple-focused opinions on TechNewsWorld, and blog with my buddies at Man Makes Fire.
