    The YouTube page that hosts the trailer describes the game as "A new VR experience from the company that brought you Myst and Obduction."

    VR only, or VR optional? It is a mystery.

    Yeah I think I saw this mentioned somewhere a week or so ago but didn't post because it was a VR game.

    ... because actually the teaser is "an attempt to garner interest and financial backing": http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2018/mar/02/myst-creators-surprise-with-announcement-of-new-vi/

    Oh well.

    Yeah, unless they're getting some eXXXtreme financial incentives to be a VR-only release (which Occulus and their like have been known to do), this will be a non-VR game as well. Otherwise, they're just leaving money on the table. And no one likes money left on a table, it's either in their wallet, or on the dresser.

    How big is the market for difficult/serious VR adventures? Two or three people?

    Unless this turns out to be a walking simulator.

    Make the Codex Great Again!
    Honestly considering getting a VR unit for this game (and several others that support it like The Invisble Hours)
