Genres: Puzzle, Adventure

From Cyan, the indie studio that brought you Myst and Riven comes a whole new adventure that will become your world. As you walk beside the lake on a cloudy night, a distant thunderclap demands your attention. A curious, organic artifact falls from the starry sky and inexplicably, without asking permission, transports you across the universe. You’ve been abducted from your cozy existence and added into an alien landscape with a stereotypical Kansas farmhouse, a white picket fence, and a rather bizarre little ghost town - well… almost ghost town. Adding to the oddity, you discover a strangely kluged kiosk that reassuringly welcomes you to Hunrath. The new 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. This is your story now.

A beautiful, if simple, puzzle game that remains faithful to Myst without feeling dated.

No Recommendation / Blank

Myst's spiritual successor offers a lot of the same delights as its 1993 forbear, but is hampered by litany of technical issues.

A true successor to Myst, with puzzles as ingenious as they are uncompromisingly obscure. Although the experience is hampered by serious technical problems.
