About Obduction
Ob`duc´tion, n.1. The act of drawing or laying over, as a covering.

Obduction is a first-person adventure game developed and published by Cyan, Inc., the creators of the Myst series of video games. It is a puzzle-solving game with a strong dependency on environmental storytelling. The player-character, meant to represent the player themselves, is abducted by a strange flying "seed" to a deserted settlement and must explore and puzzle-solve to discover what has become of the inhabitants and why they were abducted in the first place.

Obduction is currently on Version 1.7.0 and is available for PC, Mac, and PlayStation 4. VR versions run on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PSVR.
