    Experience Design at Cyan

    Experience an early Obduction design meeting either at Cyan's studio (travel provided) or via Skype, Google Hangouts, or FaceTime (iPad provided.) We'll prep you with background info, and you'll watch a brainstorming/problem-solving session play out - it might get loud. Later that evening, have dinner with Rand Miller and other members of the design team. As the production progresses, you'll be one of the first to play an early build and provide feedback to the design team via Skype. You'll continue to receive project updates from the producer along with exclusive updated builds that you'll be able to play. Your name will be in the opening credits as “Supporting Producer." Part of selecting this reward means you must select from either 1) lunch, dinner, airfare (up to $800), and two nights' lodging OR 2) latest iPad (Wifi internet connection required.) (+ all previous rewards - yes, you will be joining us at the launch party, too!)

    Become the Strata 3D Artist

    NEW REWARD TIER. The images in the original Myst were created using Strata 3D Software. As a special offer, our friends at Strata have generously offered to support the Obduction Kickstarter campaign by providing a special Myst version of their Strata Design 3D CX software ($600 value) to backers at this special reward level or above. You’ll use Design 3D CX to design, model, and texture an (appropriate) item for Obduction! Your object will have a chance to be seen by anyone playing Obduction. Your name will also be in the "Additional Design" section of the credits. This special Myst version of Design 3D also includes some of the surface textures and digital 3D objects from the original Myst models. The textures can be used in your own models, and you can open the 3D objects and see how they were created. And that’s not all! You’ll also receive 5 exclusive hi-res digital images (one image from each Age of Myst) rendered from the original Myst models. These are scenes you'll recognize, but at the highest resolution possible, and never before released. (+ all rewards from $250 level and down)
