Now. I just HAVE to let you all know about the thing that recently sent my geek world reeling:
~The creators of MYST and RIVEN are creating a new game! ~
That is, they will if they reach their Kickstarter goal. Oh, the hours and notes that my dad and I invested working our way through these games. I say with pride that we never used the help books. If you aren't familiar, MYST and RIVEN are are immersive games that transport you to a new world where exploring and complex puzzling is your only aim. Beautiful graphics and emotive music penetrate your imagination.
This video introduces the world to Cyan, Inc.'s new project, Obduction :
Support them on Kickstarter and get this closet-nerd her next fix!
In the meantime, get jazzed by looking at some of the concept sketches they have released thus far.
