Spiritual successor to Myst and Riven - Obduction - now has a traile

I've attempted to complete Myst without a walkthrough on numerous occasions now but never managed to do so on account of my way of thinking getting in the way of the moon logic Myst intends you for you to use on certain puzzles. You would think I'd hate Myst after going through that whole ordeal but if anything, my love for the game has deepened, even if it makes me feel like a half-wit.

If you share the same position as me (ideally without the whole stupidity aspect) then you'll be delighted to hear that Obduction, the spiritual successor to Myst and Riven, is progressing rather nicely if the latest trailer is any judge. Have a look:


The trailer speaks about potential spoilers for purists but I haven't seen anything of the sort. Even if you're the most die-hard of fans and hate spoiling a single puzzle for yourself, worry not, there's nothing of the sort here.

What is present, however, is a beautiful world ripe for exploring, puzzling and getting stuck for 30 minutes while endlessly staring at a slightly off-colored wall trying to gleam its secrets. Best thing about it all? Obduction is aiming to support Oculus Rift on launch so if you have a few piles of money to spare you'll be able to enjoy the alien landscapes of Obduction in the most immersive of ways.

Cyan Worlds are planning to release Obduction in the second quarter of 2016, though keep in mind nothing is set in stone as of yet.
