If you’re a fan of the puzzle game genre, then you likely have been following the progress of Obduction ever since it hit Kickstarter. Featuring some of the biggest names in the genre, as well as PC gaming in general, Obduction promised high quality and delivered when it was released last year. Now the full promise of the game is coming to fruition with a new update adding in motion controller support for Vive and Oculus Rift.
Created by Cyan Inc., Obduction was developed by the original creators of puzzle game legends Myst and Riven. Ryan and Rand Miller worked extensively on the game, crafting an experience that harkened back to those iconic puzzle titles. The final game delivered, earning a very solid score in our review which said “Fans of Myst and Riven will be delighted at what Cyan has crafted once again. A beautiful, mysterious world awaits them, full of mind bending puzzles, and wondrous vistas.”
Obduction was already playable in VR, but players were limited to using a standard controller. The immersive qualities of VR gaming are certainly enhanced with full motion controller support, so getting it into Obduction should make the game even better, for those with a VR headset.
“We were blown away by the number of fans who queued up at PAX East and SXSW to be among the first to go hands on with Obduction VR hand controls. Reactions ranged from praise to amazement, and it was genuinely touching to talk with generations of families that grew up on Myst and were now excited about Obduction,” said Rand Miller, CEO, Cyan.
This new Obduction update will go out to all current owners of the game at no charge. New buyers will get the VR support as well, with no change in the current price of the game.
