The lights are on
Fans of Cyan, Inc.’s Myst series should be thrilled to hear that the Obduction Kickstarter campaign has reached its $1.1 million base funding goal. In fact, it has now officially surpassed that mark by just over $80,000.
Approximately forty hours remain for the campaign to raise additional funds for its stretch goals, two of which have already been revealed.
$1.3 million is needed to reach Cyan's first stretch goal of bringing Obduction to the Oculus Rift.
Funding the “Additional World” stretch goal would require $1.7 million, and would allow Cyan to add a fourth world to the three that are currently planned in addition to the Obduction hub world.
Reaching that same stretch goal would also allow Cyan to add a “Roadtrip Mode” to the game, where two players share the exploration experience over the internet. In this mode, one person controls the player-character, and a second person is also able to look around and see everything the first is seeing. The two can talk to one another, share information, and switch roles whenever they please.
There also appears to be an unrevealed third stretch goal.
