Cyan Kickstarting Obduction

This Kickstarter is for a game called Obduction, an adventure game being proposed by Cyan, Inc., creators of Myst and Riven, adventure games highly praised for their artfulness when they were released back in the 20th century. They seek $1.1 million and are aiming to release this in mid-to-late 2015 for Windows and OS X, saying: "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." The campaign includes a video showing some Unreal Engine 4 artwork to make you mysty with nostalgia, and an unscripted explanation from Cyan's Rand Miller of their plans. Here's more:
The Obduction project will take what Cyan knows about creating deeply immersive worlds and apply it to an entirely new game with fantastic scenery, incredible architecture, compelling story, and exceptional challenges.

Obduction will be built with the same framework that made Cyan's earlier games such a wonderful experience: stunning landscapes, deep storyline, engaging characters, dramatic soundscapes, and challenging yet intuitive puzzles. Obduction is an entirely new property, delivered using one of the most powerful game development technologies available today. Obduction is an adventure game for the new millennium that stays true to the concepts that made the genre great.
