      Thanks for the pointer to "Seventh Guest 3: The Collector"! I bought my first CD-ROM Drive to play Myst. I also spent many hours on the Seventh Guest and I'm happy I could back that project too!

      You missed probably one of the biggest Developers of the 90's Kickstarter Campaign.
      Cinemaware with Wings Remastered Edition.
      They supported you guys on their Facebook page.

      @Cyan Such a great update. I love that you've mentioned so many of the other devs. That's a lot of what Kickstarter is all about - devs supporting devs. Spreading the love helps make a healthy future for everyone. You all rock!
      @Fellow backers: Let's stick it to the publisher man & support these other cool games!! ;)

    7. Jason Lentz on

      And 2/3rds of the indie studio Glug Glug are also excited backers for this project. I'm sure it's not quite on the level of the support from the aforementioned studios, but we're all excited to see this project succeed. I'll nudge our third team member to get his pledge in to make it 100% of the Glug Glug team!

      Congrats from

      @CYAN Hi, I talked to the people at Technical Illusions that had the castAR kickstarter campaign and said they'd love to help you out. However, they sent you and email and never heard from you. Hope, you two start a wonderful collaboration.

      Congratulations on reaching your funding goal. Thank you so much.

      All, if you like supporting indie game development, check out the this update and support a couple of other indie developers... Kickstarter is not about supporting a single developer, but about a revolution!!! We are here to tell the publishers what WE want!!!!

      And, let us go forth, after this ends of course, and do likewise. I know I will be doing what I can. These folks helped a personal dream come true. Which is, @CYAN, you would comeback, to the root. I owe these folks in that list, a debt of personal, gratitude for reasons to many to detail and some, impossible to put into words. Thank-you, Developers, all!

    12. Donn Manalili on

      Awesome stuff guys, Congratulations again on your success!

    13. Oded Sharon on

      Play it on my Oculus Rift by the looks of it

    14. Oded Sharon on

      Wow guys. Thanks a lot!!
      Obduction campaign was amazing. I wish my campaign Bolt Riley was as great, in fact 11% as great and we will be celebrating. I'm already seeing new backers thanks to you guys.

      I loved Myst when i played it when it first came out, and looking forward to playing Obduction.

      @Riggo oops totally missed that. Sorries :p

    16. Riggo on

      Last I checked, NPH was not a developer who needed a shout out... ;-)

    17. Natalie Manahan

      It's nice to know you had so much help from other developers!

      After NPH (Neil Patrick Harris) tweeted you guys got a sizable bump.

      Thanks for the edit!

      @Matt- Done

    22. Bryan Richards on

      I should go visit them soon. I live in Spokane and actually grew up in Mead.

    23. Riggo on

      @Team Cyan... Thanks for this... All of the indie developers need the love!

    24. Matt Giuca on

      The link to Steve Swink's SCALE is missing a 'w' in 'www'.. :( Can you please fix?

      (That game looks awesome btw, its Kickstarter is ending within a few hours of Obduction.)

    25. ChrisD on

      ...and thanks :D

    26. ChrisD on

      I just backed Bolt Riley too >:D
      I'll throw a little at some of the others as well

    27. Cyan, Inc. Creator on

      @ChrisD- Updated.

    28. Riggo on

      @ChrisD... There are projects that aren't even close to funding on this list that desperately need the love!!! That being said, I have backed your project to spread the love. :-)

    29. Rob Landeros on

      It was a pleasure to be a small part of your great success. Obduction is exactly the kind of game that floats my boat and that the world needs more of. I think it's safe to predict it will be a huge success and cause the industry to prick up its ears and take notice.

    30. Talon Edgewater [Xulima[Bloom]Deathfire] on

      I think Mr. NPH deserves a shout-out!!

    31. Riggo on

      Thanks from Bolt Riley Cyan team!!!!

    32. Mat Van Rhoon on

      You are more than welcome! Seeing Obduction succeed is not only great for you guys, but fantastic for the whole genre, and many of us here at Big Finish Games have been with you guys all the way! We grew up in the era which you guys helped shape, and look forward to the wonderful worlds and adventures we will experience in Obduction!

      You missed me :(
