18 days left! (Road Trip Mode)

Postby greydragon » Mon Feb 10, 2014 2:34 pm

We only have 18 days left to make the next stretch goal. Let's push ahead and make it a reality.

Just to remind you, in the next stretch goal we expand the content from hub plus three areas to hub plus four! A whole new world to explore!


Plus we add Roadtrip Mode! For more information on it, please check out our FAQ.

We can do it, but only with your help.

Speaking of help, we have a few things you can do to get us closer to our 1.7 goal.

Let your Twitter/Facebook/G+/ friends know about the campaign by sharing:

Join me in backing #Obduction – a new game from the creators of Myst & Riven @cyanworlds

And of course - please be sure to follow/like/+1 us on Twitter/Facebook/G+/etc. and share our posts with your friends! Look at what friend/ fan Drew Van Camp is doing: Obduction fundraising support http://drewvancamp.com/2014/02/07/obduction-musical-fundraiser

I've tossed in a bit of extra cash during the last week, hopefully many others did too. (Today is the last day to support Obduction via Paypal!)

I doubt we'll get to the $1.7 million mark through crowdfunding at this point, but maybe, just maybe, we'll get close enough that Cyan Worlds would consider covering the difference with some of the funds they've generated from RM:ME? They hit #1 on the Mac App Store so there has to be *something* there.

It'd maybe even turn out to be a smart business move on their part to do that, IMO - the bigger and better and more polished Obduction is at the time of launch, the better the likelihood of Obduction having strong positive reviews/press and a successful, profitable release.

It also would look good from a PR standpoint for Cyan to be pouring a little of their own (admittedly limited) resources into the project to make it better. It'd indicate that they really believe in this project.

I actually even posted a new calendar in the Myst On-line forum to generate interest...

I think it'd be awesome if Cyan could release a patch adding Roadtrip to Obduction sometime after release, once the money has been made to do so.

Yeah, that might be more likely.

I'd like to see the game as strong as possible right out of the gate, but it may not be realistic to ask or expect Cyan to cover the costs of Roadtrip mode or a new world in advance of release.
