OK.. So as many of you who watch my channel know I am an old school gamer who came up playing the grand puzzle/adventure title's like Myst and Riven, so I have always had a soft spot in my heart for anything that Cyan Worlds puts out there. I was pleasantly surprised recently to see that Cyan was back at it trying to get funding for their potential second VR title: Firmament.
Firmament will be the second VR offering from Cyan after the success of the first title they produced for virtual reality which was Obduction. Now if you played that one you know that the Cyan team really knows how to construct vast and beautiful worlds with thoughtful and quite challenging puzzles and I'm happy to say from what I saw in the 20 minute tech demo I played that Firmamnet will follow suit. The graphics were as expected outstanding and the sheer scale of the outdoor scenes in the demo was breathtaking!
Currently Firmamnet is about at the half way point of their funding goal with only 15 days to go over on Kickstarter. If you are like me and are longing for another great puzzle/adventure game with a rich and detailed narrative driven world to explore, then I highly recommend heading over to the Kickstarter page and showing Cyan some love!
I don't want to sound like a complete shill here, I just really love Cyan's work and feel that they are some of the OG's of PC gaming and that they deserve our support. I mean c'mon.. We are always complaining we want full and polished games in VR and here is a studio that is trying to give us one, so lets all get over there and help them reach that goal! -)
