Ops....I called RAWA's head patches Oculus -- should be Optune. My
Mind is too centered on Obduction things I guess - ;)
Terry - thank you for your well wishes. I will be sure to pass that on to him
move to Ireland ..We have Free health care....like most of Europe
hope he gets well soon
Update on dr appt - chemo med prescription is being put thru again to see if insurance will pay for it this time. Now a waiting game
Evan-this is RAWA's mama - he has his good days and bad days. He just found out that his insurance won't pay for his chemo meds any more. That could also mean no more MRI's (but that is not confirmed at this time) he has an appt with the oncologist today so may have more info later. One of his meds causes him to stutter so dr is trying to wean him off that one. The stuttering is VERY frustrating for him. He wears Oculus patches on his head 24/7 that have electrodes on them. It is suppose to keep cancer cells from growing. The electrodes are activated 18 hours out of the 24. Thank you for asking. Please continue to keep him in your prayers. The fans mean SO much to him !!!!!!!
Any update on how Rawa's been doing?
Release it when you feel it is done. We haven't waited this long to be disappointed by a rushed product.
well we are here again...

I DON'T MIND DELAYED GAMES.....
But what about ................The boxed version...................when will that be released ?
@Monk I take full responsibility.
I mostly just feel bad that the team's working 7 day weeks. Don't burn yourselves out!
Thanks for the honest update, Cyan. I can wait a few more weeks for you to finish polishing. I'd rather have the fully polished game from the start.
Bugs! I hate bugs and gl gl gl glitches!!
Fix them.....................When you are happy and the game is released - put your feet up have a beer and congratulate yourselves on a decision well made.
Thanks for the update and for taking the bold step to get things just right. We appreciate it.
The less bugs the game has the happier we will be that we waited. I'm a database programer by trade and know how important it is to fix bugs before a release.
Personally, I have no issues with any delays from the team. I find it refreshing in today's software world that there are still people focused on quality instead of deadlines when determining to release. If anything, the delay makes me that much more excited to play. Keep up the great work!
At the end of the day, what will matter is the quality of the game, not exactly when it gets to us. Take your time!
Dear Cyan, gain for me what matters is quality. I can very well wait as long as needed so you deliver what you do best ! Keep on going ! And do enjoy a small summer break :)
Hi guys. We are not in the rush take the time you need. I prefer playing the exprience you are proud of ;-)
Thank for your passion creating obduction
You realize Cyan was just " waiting " for some one to make that remark ?
Now we are all being punished.
Stand in the corner with your head down.
Ditto on the "take your time" comments. I'm sure you might be bummed at missing a deadline (and as a project manager myself, I get it that deadlines missed can have consequences) but from my perspective--take your time! It will be great. As everyone knows, "you rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles." https://youtu.be/D9tAKLTktY0
Because we love you guys at Cyan and because we love the MYST Series (currently playing through Revelation on my Twitch stream!) we will wait for as long as it takes to receive a game you are 100% proud of. Thank you for working so hard.
@Colton Clayton : How I know how you feel ;-)
No worries on the delay, take the time you need to make it great!
Thanks for the update. I indeed trust you will deliver. Take as much time as you need!
And now I feel stupid for missing your second post, lol.
So, how about that awesome coming game?
@Paul Deshaies Jr You paid for the version of the game that comes with the Digital Strategy Guide, the Digital Artbook, and the Digital Soundtrack.
There was a $25 tier that was just for the game alone (which is what I got; would have paid for the $75 physical copy if I had the money at the time).
hmm the oculus exclusivity is still a problem though, true. Means no hands in the game like with a Vive?
Oops... don't I feel like an ass...
I just noticed that I'll get a whole bunch of additional cool stuff!
Sorry. Like most idiot internet users... I didn't read. :-/
I pledged 45$ for what is going to be an AMAZING game I'm sure.
I'm also sure it'll be worth every penny.
However, I found this little piece of information on your website
It appears that Obduction will be available for 30 bucks to everyone.
Am I correct in assuming that I paid an extra 15$ for the privilege of receiving updates from you guys, however entertaining were the, for close to three years.
Am I missing something?
Thanks for what promises to be a lot of fun.
So, remember how 10 hours ago I asked "when are you planning to delay it by another month"? I WAS ONLY KIDDING GUYS.
Just think, it was 'nearly finished' a year ago...
"Obduction is a product that we’re very proud of" So good!! Really happy for the complete team to come to an end of such an adventure and to be able to write THIS. All time you need! no complaints. I am sure i will have a blast playing it. thank YOU for making this game, we have waited so long to get a new real great Cyan game.
I am currently playing a beautiful game with detailed quests that has gotten worse with each update due to rushed coding to meet deadlines.
As a result, I am actually ecstatic to hear about your reasons for the delay. Get it right the first time. It will be a much better game as a result, and I always want to think of Cyan as building beautiful games if beautiful worlds.
Thank you for doing what you need to do to ensure that remains true.
Sad to hear about the delay -- but I trust you guys and your explanation makes sense. Better to wait and release something polished than release simply for the sake of a deadline.
I'm sure you'll get some hate for this, but not from me. I've waited this long, I can wait a little longer :).
Any update on Vive support, though? This is what I'm most looking forward to -- one of the bigger reasons I bought my Vive!
Hey Cyan, the launch date is a week away, when are you planning to delay it by another month? Cutting it close guys.
Cyan, I just completed the survey today, and it's only several days before release. Will my name still appear on the credits? I've pledged $25, though the lowest tier.
Thanks Micheal will look it up and download it.
The program others have mentioned that allows you to play occulus exclusive games on HTC Vive is called "Revive" by a developer named "Libre VR".
I have just updated my NVIDIA software and lo behold there is VR support for games and Obduction is one of them. Clicked on the link and watched Rand Miller talking bout the game, Ansel and VR release date still 26 July - oh happy days!
If this is already on Facetwonk fair enough but I don`t do it hence mentioning it on here.
I have a VIVE also and think now Oculus have removed their DRM it won`t matter which you have it should work, I hope so anyway.
Please Please Please make it kompatible to the htc vive !!!!!!!
Tank you !!!!
10 days left....;-p
I'm curious about how the VR support will work, and whether they're going to sell the game on Oculus Home. I think I've already chosen Steam as my download method in the survey, and that's probably fine, I'm just curious.
2 weeks! 8D
Getting closer and closer - YEA
While your crew is still together.... Maybe an Android version?
Maybe look at MOULa and finish the missing ages?
Dear Cyan, when you send the physical items by post, could you please tag them as gift ? I'm really no interested in having them stuck in customs a month.
Countdown. 22 days to go. Three weeks and a day.
when will the " boxed version" be available..?
Another request for HTC Vive support. Ideally with motion tracked controller support, but I'd be happy with simple gamepad support to start with. Fingers crossed it'll come eventually.
HTC Vive owners, we can be happy about a recent news from Oculus Rift : nore more DRM ! We wil be able to play Obduction on our HMD.
