    3. Creator Natalie Manahan on November 14, 2013

      Once again I love the Hash-Tag abuse! That pipe was awesome and I assumed that pink robe was yours. Funny how it wasn't you or Robyn that told everyone to get back to work! Don't work yourselves to death, ok? Have fun during the process!

    4. Creator Michelle Spencer on November 14, 2013

      Congratulations to all of you!

    18. Creator Ryan Eisworth on November 13, 2013

      Congratulations to Cyan for the successful launch of the Obduction project!
      One million one hundred thousand thanks to Backers for giving the opportunity to Cyan to take us elsewhere again!!
      But it isn't finished yet ...
      We can still give Cyan the opportunity to improve our Obduction, so "let's go"!!!
      YEE(s)HA! :-)

    22. Creator John Trautschold on November 13, 2013

      Congratulations Rand and all of Cyan. Now that you've made your Kickstarter goal you can really Kickstarter some butt on the game!!! Woohoo! You are all the best! Can't wait for more updates. Love you all.

    23. Creator matthieu delaurens on November 13, 2013

      i'm so proud to have launched myself on crossfunding for helping you cyan. Can even write how i like the myst serie since i discovered it as a kid. Hope you the best. probably the best 25$ i ever spend. :) :)

    24. Creator Gregory Champoux on November 13, 2013

      That video.. it might be Rand playing but it actually reminds me of Sirrus.. There must be genetic link somewhere.

    25. Creator Pieter Claeys on November 13, 2013

      Awesome, party on!
      Then get cracking :) So looking forward to the game!

    26. Creator Jules on November 13, 2013

      Grats! Grats! Grats! Well done supporters! Charles Gaylord, you rock! I hope you get an early birthday present!! What a nice one!

    27. Creator mabd on November 13, 2013

      Can I be honest? I was scared there for a moment. Maybe it's because it's my first kickstarting experience, but I didn't think it was going to happen until it went boom yesterday. God, I'm happy :3 High fives all around!

    28. Creator Jason Chau on November 13, 2013

      Party on dudes!!! Congratulations guys, you did it!!!! Yeah! :D

    29. Creator Victoria G.P. on November 13, 2013

      WOOHOO!! Congratulations to you all. My belief never wavered because you are the best. I had to pass up on the happy dance and went straight on to the deliriously ecstatic dance! 2015 cannot get her soon enough.

    30. Creator Adam Minder on November 13, 2013

      Rand is the best. So happy you guys made it. Hopefully you guys get a bit more for a good buffer.

    31. Creator Tomasz Soczka on November 13, 2013

      Great news! Now I hope we reach the stretch goals, the Oculus Rift support at least.

    32. Creator Luke Rom on November 13, 2013

      Congratulations, Cyanians! I can't wait to get in there!

    33. Creator John Gager on November 13, 2013

      That's the Rand I remember :) Congrats guys and I really hope you do well with Obduction. What is good for Cyan is good for Spokane. I'll be here offering my support for your new endeavor.

    34. Creator Rodney Recor on November 13, 2013

      Attaboy, Tony! Get these party people to the grindstone. It will be up you to keep things under control if Rand is going to enjoy that whole bottle of champaigne all by himself. Congratulations to you all!

    35. Creator Jana Lyn Wiley on November 13, 2013

      YES!!! A hearty congrats! Cannot wait for 2015 though! Maybe things can go faster so that Charles Gaylord gets his wish? (me too!)

    36. Creator Joe Mohn Jr. on November 13, 2013

      Way to go!!!!! Rand, you crack me up!!!! I can't wait to get this game in my grubby little fingers!!!!! It's been way too long of a wait for something new from Cyan!!!! I got chills when I got the news that the base pledge was met!!!! Congratulations Cyan!!!!!

    37. Creator darkgaze on November 13, 2013

      COOL PEOPLE! very happy!! i was really worried yesterday wondering if you were able to get to the end!

    38. Creator Davide Callegari on November 13, 2013

    39. Creator Cam MacDuff on November 13, 2013

      Huge congrats to everyone at Cyan from New Zealand. LOL, hilarious video! You guys rock!

    40. Creator GalvanicSpiral on November 13, 2013

      Congrats to Cyan and everybody who participated (and continues to participate) in this journey. I want to give a shoutout especially to the guys and gals who did lots of amazing legwork to get the word out. Also, thanks to Neil Patrick Harris for tweeting and bringing Obduction to the attention of a whole boatload's worth of other fine folks.


    41. Creator Harith Al-Shakarchi on November 13, 2013

      Very happy for you all. :)

    42. Creator Neal Tambe on November 13, 2013

      Congratulations! I would donate more, but the next tier is not that appealing. A new level would be nice, but I have no plans for the oculus rift. ..

    43. Creator Louise on November 13, 2013

      Whooooo Hoooooooo! Can't wait to play!

    44. Creator Charles Gaylord on November 13, 2013

      We met your goal, now please meet your delivery dates. I am 87. Two more years looks like forever from here. Plus, I'll need time to learn and play the game!

    45. Creator Derek Astle on November 13, 2013

      Awesome! Really looking forward to seeing the finished product. I'm already anticipating many hours of head scratching as I try to figure out the puzzles. :)

    46. Creator Scott Eaton on November 13, 2013
