Attention Mac users

Hey Mac users!

Looks like the recent update unintentionally rolled back the macOS build to an earlier version. Thanks to everyone who brought it to our attention! We've readied a fix that should be rolling out very shortly.

Thanks again everyone.

About This Game

Now also playable on Oculus Rift!
Note: This is a visually lush and detailed game. Playing in VR takes full advantage of higher-end systems - please refer to its minimum and recommended specs.

From Cyan, the indie studio that brought you Myst, comes a new sci-fi adventure.

As you walk beside the lake on a cloudy night, a curious, organic artifact falls from the starry sky and inexplicably, without asking permission, transports you across the universe. You’ve been abducted from your cozy existence and added into an alien landscape with pieces of Earth from unexpected times and places.

The strange worlds of Obduction reveal their secrets only as you explore, discover, coax, and consider their clues. As you bask in the otherworldly beauty and explore the enigmatic landscapes, remember that the choices you make will have substantial consequences. This is your story now.

Make it home.


“Immense and immersive… It was breathtaking… something that feels magical.” - UploadVR

“Obduction’s beautiful world is a worthy successor to Myst.” - Wired
