From Cyan, the studio that brought you Myst, comes Obduction, an all-new adventure that brings the spirit of Cyan’s earlier games into the new millennium. Obduction resurrects the feeling of finding yourself in the middle of new worlds to explore, discover, solve, and become part of.

As you walk beside the lake on a cloudy night, a curious, organic artifact falls from the sky and inexplicably, without asking permission, transports you across the universe.

The worlds of Obduction reveal their secrets only as you explore, coax, and consider them. And as you bask in the otherworldly beauty and explore through the enigmatic landscapes, remember that the choices you make will have substantial consequences.

Obduction. Make it home.

Review by Emeria

BUY - I love this game. Read the system requirements carefully, but if you have the hardware, proceed and enjoy! I have been a fan of Cyan's work since Myst and Riven and always thought of those as a moment in time never to be repeated in gaming, but here we are in 2017. While we’re not exactly experiencing a new genre, they are pushing boundaries. What was accomplished here should be rewarded and applauded. Great job! I hope to see more in the future. As for performance, yes it needs some horsepower, but no one ever said it didn’t. We thankfully live in a time when optimizations can come out after release quite easily. Having waited many months now for the Mac release i am quite pleased. Thank you Cyan!

Can’t Get it to work - I would love to give this 5 Stars, but just spent $30 to download it, and I clicked on icon and nothing happens. I have all the requirements, but still can’t get game to work. I cannot find a fix online. Download at your own risk. Hopefully they will get it to work.

Review by EveryNameIsTakenSoHereItIs

Want to love it, but performance is terrible (especially after last update) - This is a stunningly beautiful game, and I agree that is is a worthy successor to the originals. That being said, the game has been full of glitches, and the last 2 updates have made it worse. It just makes me too angry/frustrated to play it now, so I’ve just had to put it away. Do I have a supercomputer? No. But I’ve got a 2015 MacBook Pro with quad 2.5 i7, 16 GB of RAM, and a decent 2GB discrete graphics card. I believe those are recommended specs for the Mac- and it played OK at first. But after subsequent updates, and despite doing all the little fixes that are recommended, it’s just not worth fighting any longer. I may pull it all out and start over, but geez- come on.
