Firmament Kickstarter is live (Cyan Worlds next VR Game)

ZenbaneZenbane Posts: 14,604 Valuable Player

Less than 1 hour ago, the Kickstarter for the next game in the series behind Myst, Riven, and Obdcution has launched: Firmament. This is being built for Virtual Reality.



As most people know, I'm a huge fan of all things Myst and Cyan. I backed their last Kickstarter which was successful, and I'm now the proud owner of a Myst Linking Book Replica. I rarely support the backing of anything that involves $$$, but I'll be backing this one. I'm backing it, hard.

    Looks awesome! Also reminds me that I still need to go back and finish Obduction  (I don't think I even got that far into it.)

    Hopefully they've made the motion controls feel better than they did in Obduction; I think that was one of the reasons I lost interest, despite how gorgeously detailed and fascinating the game world was.
    It's hard being the voice of reason when you're surrounded by unreasonable people.

    I just backed it :) Obduction's VR implementation was no so great, but it's such a great game ! Firmament is built for VR, so I'm very confident with the result. The wait will be long now...

    Yea I actually got annoyed with Obduction and never finished it due to some bugs and other issues I was having. I should go back and finish that one day. These guys reputation speaks for itself though and to get a game from them built for VR... I'm in. I backed it. I threw in a little extra since they're so far from their goal. Hope it makes it.

    Obduction has gone through many updates since launch. Most to fix bugs/annoyances and some to enhance the story. I plan to replay it soon!

    Yes, it's almost there!

    If you're reading this and haven't backed the project... c'mon now, even the lowest tier is affordable. Do it and I will send free nudes...
