I know Cyan probably doesn't have the resources to produce and sell merchandise right now, but I think it would be cool if they would offer a t-shirt logo that fans could print out as an iron-on to make our own "official" Obduction shirts. It doesn't seem like that would take a whole lot in the way of resources (they could charge a few bucks to download it to offset the cost) and it would give them a bit of extra visibility. I'm sure I can't be the only fan who would wear an Obduction t-shirt but for whatever reason couldn't get one during the first round.

I second Anna Catherine's idea

The Logo would allow me to have a shirt or Hoodie that I would actually be able to wear.
The reward shirt I received was only a 2x in size - I wear a large 3x or a small 4x

Needless to say my reward shirt is NOT wearable...

I've had the experience, when doing a public presentation, of being asked why I didn't put up a QR code for people to capture as it was "too much trouble" to type in the domain name of my website (which was only five letters plus ".org").

My experience is that QR codes never took off, are already vanishing, and were only ever pushed by marketing departments.

So, yes, there is some cultural clash here. :)

Maybe link it to the Steam of Gog page? There they can watch the trailer, read about it, and read some (hopefully) positive reviews.

Don't know how well that works on mobile though.

The Obduction website was originally built to adjust for mobile devices (at low resolutions, the navigation controls change to a dropdown page selector).

Unfortunately, it's clear that whoever built the current main and BUY NOW! pages did not test those on mobile. That's unfortunate, because the other pages seem to apply progressive reduction (or whatever the current phrase is) quite nicely.

I suggest reaching out to someone at Cyan to remind them that their site needs to work on mobile. This is a mandate!

Mobile device support is a no-brainer given the ubiquity of phones. Cyan needs to make this a priority.

As for my statements earlier, we have to hit a balance between acknowledging the flaws of Cyan's games, and pointing out that they still have merit despite these flaws.

Because Cyan's games, while imperfect, do have a whole lot going for them.

I myself have a plan for a personal [small, dirt cheap, but highly efficient] promotional campaign for Obduction planned out in the next 72 hours which should make some slight difference.

Between that, other fans' efforts, and the VR-support update, maybe things will soon improve.
