Obduction, by the makers of Myst, might include Oculus Rift support

The Kickstarter-funded 'Obduction' from the makers of Myst and Riven might include Oculus Rift support as a stretch goal

I might be showing my age here, but Myst was one of the most amazing games I ever had the chance of playing when I was young. When I first got the chance to test out the Oculus Rift, one of the first games that I thought would be amazing to play in the VR world was, Myst.

Well, the award-winning creators of Myst and Riven are on Kickstarter right now trying to fund their latest title: Obduction. Obduction is an "all-new, real-time, first-person adventure that harkens back to the spirit of Cyan's earlier games Myst and Riven. Obduction resurrects that incredible feeling of suddenly finding yourself in the middle of a new world to explore, discover, solve, and become part of."

 

One of the most interesting parts of the Obduction Kickstarter page, is in its FAQ, where the question "What about Oculus Rift support" to which the answer is: "We are excited about Oculus Rift (we have a dev kit) and VR in general, and we'd love to have a stretch goal that heads that direction."

 

At the time of writing, Obduction was at $624,887 of its required $1.1 million goal. I'm sure it'll hit that goal, and continue to the $1.5 - $2 million mark, which should ensure Rift support. Obduction will reach Windows and Mac OS toward the middle of 2015, if it reaches its $1.1 million goal, of course.
