Listening to the Adagio from his 'Piano Concerto in G major' at 4 in the morning ... Heaven.
I have been curious about Obduction ever since I heard of its existence. I mean : look at that image, think about the impact Myst (1993) had. This just -has- to be a good game.
As I was getting ready to buy it, I decided to skim through some "Let's Play" footage ...
And ... I'm very glad I did, because I would not have enjoyed playing this game, even though it is really beautiful. I ended up watching the entire "Let's Play" (Dilandau3000, aka. Sven Groot & Myst fan) instead ...
This is where the game starts : some camping grounds in the woods.
Immediately, there's a feeling of adventure and mystery ...
In the distance, you see the light of a camp fire.
While you walk in that direction, an offscreen voice is talking about a light that was seen in the sky, and how several people were inexplicably drawn to it.
The offscreen voice continues : "It found us. Each of us."
"It saved us."
