SPOKANE, WA (PRWEB) AUGUST 24, 2016

Cyan, Inc., the indie studio best known for the award-winning titles Myst and Riven, today launched their highly-anticipated Kickstarter-backed sci-fi adventure puzzler, Obduction. The game is available for PC download on Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store for $29.99, and will be coming soon to Rift and Mac.

Obduction transports players from the comforts of home on a journey through eerie alien landscapes with odd remnants of strangely familiar pieces of Earth. It features expansive worlds to explore, a deep story to embrace, and cerebral challenges to unravel. Enjoy the just released Obduction launch trailer which teases what lies ahead.

"Obduction provides an evocative and mysterious experience, crafted to induce the same feeling that Myst did - of being dropped into an entirely otherworldly situation, uncovering what happened, and determining what happens next. We really hope that probing these new worlds will give players a rich, satisfying experience," said Rand Miller, co-founder of Cyan. "We are so grateful to our 23,000 backers who made Obduction a reality."

Obduction will be featured in the PAX Indie MEGABOOTH at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Friday, September 2 through Monday, September 5. Fans attending the show are invited to come by to meet the Cyan dev team and play the game on PC and Rift.

About Obduction:

Obduction is a sci-fi adventure puzzler from Cyan, Inc., the legendary creators of the award-winning Myst and Riven titles. The game was Kickstarter-backed by 23,000 devoted fans and lovingly built by a tiny team of developers on Unreal Engine 4. Available for PC on Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store for $29.99, and coming soon to Rift and Mac.


Happy Gaming!

Ana wave

Apparently there are some bugs that need fixing, like the load screen bug described in the Steam forum ***here***. Someone in that thread discovered a workaround that has to do with changing the language back and forth.

However it doesn't always work, may take more than one try, and you may have to do it every time you restart the game.

The GOG version also has the bug, reported at GOG ***here***.

Expect patches. It seems to be a very common bug.

I have just downloaded and launched my version of Obduction, and I'm disappointed. I'm running it in 640x480 mode with all the graphic settings down to 'medium', yet I cannot get it to run smoothly. Whenever I move or turn it jerks and wobbles. I am running it on a reasonably powerful computer which has run recent games like The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (with loads of effects) in much higher resolution. When I picked up the lantern near the start, the lantern kept moving in and out and the handle detatching and hovering above the lantern!

I have tried various settings without much success, and playing the game has made me feel a touch queasy with all the constant on-screen motion. If anyone finds a solution, please let me know before I'm sea sick! I was really looking forward to this game, which I supported on Kickstarter, and I'm very upset. frown

I'm starting to think we need to just make a thread in the Glitches forum for this game with the required system specs posted! If your computer doesn't meet the specs, it's not going to play the game.

I backed Obduction on Kickstarter, and even though I was emailed a Humble link to claim the game, the webpage it took me to only offered a choice of Steam or GOG, not DRM-free at Humble. That was disappointing because I wanted the game linked to my Humble account and not GOG or Steam.

Humble only offers a Steam version for sale for non-backers.

Eventually I'm due to get a disc, so I may wait for that.

I backed the game as well, Jenny, and it just said DRM-Free. It never stated where. I would think most will be thrilled it was a GoG. I for one, am happy it's a Steam. lol

I don't use GoG. I use Steam. I could tell you how to use your code there, but we will have to wait for a GoG user to explain the other.
