Those glasses look like they could get pretty interesting if they can get it to work, and develop a good interface for tabletop gaming.

Already made a news article about it, but thanks anyways. I can't always get everything so letting me know helps.

I hope for the best for them. They were some of the nicest folk I interviewed.

Ahh OK, sorry about that then :) Glad to know they were cool during the interviews :D

Also, it's nice seeing a columnist I used to read (Martin Cirulis used to write for Computer Gaming World back in the day) make games that I get to play :)

An all-new, immersive adventure game from the award-winning creators of Myst and Riven.


Obduction is an all-new, real-time, first-person adventure that harkens back to the spirit of Cyan’s earlier games Myst and Riven. Obduction resurrects that incredible feeling of suddenly finding yourself in the middle of a new world to explore, discover, solve, and become part of.

It claims a 0% percent success chance for Obduction, the Myst clone kickstarter that launced yesterday and is 33% funded after 1 day. I think they might need to work on their algorithms.

Backers-only updates. What happened?
I should have linked to the comments section, here an iteresting thing about how Kickstarter copes with these cases:
Eric Steinbrenner on Jul 24
I've also opened a ticket and learned at least one new thing. There is a moderation team and at least my ticket has been forwarded to this team, maybe you're as well. Also it seems that kickstarter has a "blacklist" of sorts that might prevent or limit any future project Kyle would start. Though with a prior project created and left unfulfilled it'd be unlikely he'd start or even get much backers due to this project.

Here's the text of the response to me:
Hi Eric,

Thanks for reaching out and sorry to hear about this.

When projects launch on Kickstarter they’re often in the early stages of development. Before the backer rewards can be fulfilled, the project itself must first be completed. It’s not uncommon for things to take longer than planned, and creators are expected to keep backers in the loop along the way.

That said, I took a look and see that it has been a while since the creator posted an update. We reached out to him and asked him to post an update and reply to his backers' messages. While we certainly encourage creators like this to stay in touch, unfortunately we have no way of forcing them to do so.

I've also passed this project along to our moderation team for review. We've made a note and the status of this project would be taken into consideration should the project creator submit another project.

Thanks for being a thoughtful backer and member of the Kickstarter community.

Best,
Michael
