Cyan today announced that Obduction, their highly-anticipated adventure game, will be launching simultaneously on PC, Mac and Oculus Rift, and will be available for download from Steam, GOG.com, Humble Store, Mac App Store, and the Oculus Store on July 26th for $29.99.
Obduction will have a new world playable at E3, Kaptar, which features soaring cliffs with precarious pathways that lead to ancient architecture, gargantuan machinery, and curious lifeforms. Also available for play at E3 will be a demo of the unusual world of Hunrath, a bizarre scoop of Earth that includes red rock canyons and a midwestern farmhouse complete with white picket fence – nestled eerily in an alien landscape.
Obduction’s first playable VR demo will be unveiled at the E3 UploadVR Party where Cyan’s co-founder Rand Miller will discuss unique features of the game and the development experience.
Rand Miller, CEO and Co-founder of Cyan, said:
“We’re so excited to once again immerse players in new worlds that offer that same feeling that Myst did — of being swept away into a story and environments that become their world. It’s been invigorating to build this new place with today’s technology to offer the best PC and Mac experience we could. And Obduction in VR crosses an exciting threshold in a new immersive era.”
Created using Epic’s Unreal Engine 4, Obduction takes advantage of the latest graphics technology, including NVIDIA HDR, Simultaneous Multi-Projection, and Ansel.
