Hey Backers,

Time flies when your having fun, right?!?!

Please excuse our lack in updates, but it’s not because of lack of news, or excitement, or progress. We’ve been working like dogs, and… well… frankly… Obduction is looking amazing! You are gonna love it! 

We’ve crossed the threshold of what we consider “beta” and we’re tuning, polishing, and optimizing. We will have more news soon, but for now please enjoy the new images in this post and a link to an article by Dustin Orgill (Game Tyrant) talking about his visit to Cyan this week and his chance to play Obduction.

Here’s a peek at what’s behind the scenes - Fear not.. all those polygons get optimized at runtime... but our source material is dense!

And a glimpse at a different world.

Dustin's Article  - We played Obduction and it is brilliant!

Get ready to start seeing more!

Thanks for your continued support,

Ryan

      @Gigi: I think that objects which are inclined itself just add an additional offset to the shadow angles. In my opinion this looks correct.

      Very beautiful screenshots. However...

      Anyone else see the error there? Hope the proofreaders for the game do a better job. :p

      It's weird to think about actually getting to play it in the not-to-distant future after so long. Very exciting.

      Great preview, and causing much drool on my part. Cyan is totally justifying my stolen avatar here! Can't wait and still waiting... Thanks, Cyan!

      I see Cyan hasn't lost their refined art direction.

    12. Gigi on

      Very beautiful.
      But, it seems like the shadows in the top picture
      is at two different angles. I may be wrong, but
      it just seems a bit "off". Comments anyone.
      But, I must admit, looking good.

    13. Gareth Cockram on

      looks great can't wait to play it

      It's a wireframe of a not yet finished structure.

      Looks great. On the right side of the first image, are the mass of chaotic looking lines in front of everything else related to movement patterns of airborne dust?

      You should get a temporal swatter for those time flies! (rimshot!)
      But seriously, folks, it's just amazing and overwhelming, and now my curiosity is hopelessly piqued.

      It was so great to read that interview linked at the bottom. I can only imagine what it would be like to be invited in to the Cyan office and meet, not only the creators, but the face of the original. The excitement for this new title is building and I cannot wait for the release and my physical boxed copy! Thank you for the update and gorgeous screenshots!

      Very impressive screenshots in the update and in the article. I know the team has been through a lot of production difficulties, but Obduction looks like it's really pulling together nicely!
