Myst creator announces street date for highly-anticipated Obduction PC VR game.

E3 to get first playable VR demo and reveal of riveting new world.

We’re so excited to once again immerse players in new worlds that offer that same feeling that Myst did — of being swept away into a story and environments that become their world.


Quote:
Spokane, WA (PRWEB) June 02, 2016

Cyan, Inc. the award-winning creators of Myst and Riven, today announced that Obduction, their highly-anticipated adventure game, will be launching simultaneously on PC, Mac and Oculus Rift, and will be available for download from Steam, GOG.com, Humble Store, Mac App Store, and the Oculus Store on July 26, 2016 for $29.99.

An official selection of the IndieCade @ E3 Showcase, Obduction will have a new world playable at E3, Kaptar, which features soaring cliffs with precarious pathways that lead to ancient architecture, gargantuan machinery, and curious lifeforms. Also available for play at E3 will be a demo of the unusual world of Hunrath, a bizarre scoop of Earth that includes red rock canyons and a midwestern farmhouse complete with white picket fence - nestled eerily in an alien landscape.

Obduction’s first playable VR demo will be unveiled at the E3 UploadVR Party where Cyan’s co-founder Rand Miller will discuss unique features of the game and the development experience.

“We’re so excited to once again immerse players in new worlds that offer that same feeling that Myst did — of being swept away into a story and environments that become their world. It’s been invigorating to build this new place with today's technology to offer the best PC and Mac experience we could. And Obduction in VR crosses an exciting threshold in a new immersive era.” said Rand Miller, CEO and Co-founder of Cyan.

About Obduction:
Obduction is a captivating Kickstarter-backed adventure game, from Cyan, Inc. the indie studio that created the award-winning Myst and Riven. The game is launching simultaneously on PC, Mac and Oculus Rift. Created using Epic’s Unreal Engine 4, Obduction takes advantage of the latest graphics technology, including NVIDIA HDR, Simultaneous Multi-Projection, and Ansel. Check out the Obduction Teaser Trailer featuring an evocative soundtrack by Robyn Miller, and visit Obduction's Website, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Obduction will be available on Steam, GOG.com, Humble Store, Mac App Store, and the Oculus Store on July 26, 2016 for $29.99.


Happy Gaming!

Figures...my win 7 64 bit just not got enough ram or video oomph. lets me out. probably for a long long time...till I can actually afford something to meet those specs. too bad. may never get to play it.
Well, hoping other good games will be still developed that will.
Too bad they cannot add more areas to the online Uru...that would be pretty awesome for just about everybody!

Cyan have always pushed the envelope with the specs for their games, so it's not really a surprise to see high specs for this one. I think my autumn 2015 upgrade actually meets them for once!

Wow...some specs! I've been looking forward to this since I heard about it, and think (even with some upgrades in place) I'll squeeze past the minimum requirements, but I really have to wonder how many folks are carrying around 16 gig RAM...I'd guess pretty few.
I'll all for a developer 'stretching the envelope', as another said, but it sure seems like they limit their own market quite a bit here!

I see plumgas beat me to it! Chief had emailed me the system specs and I was surprised to see this game is going to require a pretty hefty computer with a very good dedicated video card and a lot of RAM.

If by "8" you mean 8 GB, then if your video card meets the requirements, you are good to go.

Processor: CPU Intel i5-2500 equivalent or better
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: GeForce 660 GTX w/1GB / AMD 7700 series w/1GB equivalent or better

My non working Dell has 16 GB Ram but I went down to 8 on this computer. My card should be good though. But the game will probably make me seasick.

According to GPU Boss, your 560 Ti "might" be able to play it, but you may have to run off some graphics options. The thing is, those are the MINIMUM specs, not the recommended specs which are much higher.

Thanks, Draclvr.

I'm skeptical about the spec requirements to play Obduction. If they are correct, then Cyan can count on selling about 3 copies. smile
