As a hardcore Myst fan, I can't help but spread the word Worldwide : Cyan started yesterday a KickStarter campaing to fund their newest project: Obduction. For French Speakers, here is a full translation of the Obduction KS Page. Go rush pledge to help them creating a new gaming reference! 

the five Cores (aka) Hypnosis)

New Myst-like games are sufficiently rare to not mention this one. Developped by one Frenchie guy (hurray !), this RT3D game will ask you to help someone (sounds familiar, no ? ) My friend, I don’t know how you got here. But I think you can help us. We experienced a tragedy and we had to take refuge in another world. The world in which you are standing is on the verge of collapse because of the child in the temple. Her dreams become real and cause death and destruction. The magical stones have to be reactivated to wake up the child.   Please help us.   Get more info at the official website :
