The Kickstarter Project for Obduction went up yesterday with a goal of 1.1M and already has over 250k in less than 24h.

Personally I´m really excited about this,Myst is one of my favourite series of all time and I´ve been longing for a new game in the same vein by Cyan,still debating on how much I should pledge though.

Any of you interested in Obduction? Thinking about backing the project yourself? Or isn´t Myst and all games in that vein really your thing?

The artstyle looks fantastic,so far no gameplay yet to show but if it´s anything like Cyan´s old work I think we can rest assured that it will at the very least look amazing and have pretty chalenging and involving puzzles in addition to a pretty good story.

Really exciting news,I always enjoyed the Myst games even though they were a bit too hard for me to figure some of the puzzles out sometimes. Looks like they´re gonna make their goal just fine so that´s great.

I was fan of Riven and Myst since the old days before I even had a gaming PC haha. I'll definitely back this.

I wonder why Gamespot doesn't have a game page for Obduction yet. Neither a whisper in the news even. I'm sure the developers could use the visibility.

Definitely backed it! I really want this to happen. The early artwork looks incredible (I pledged to get the Art of Obduction book because I want more images to drool over), and it's nice to support an ambitious project from the old indie game makers again. They still need a lot more contributions to make this happen!
