Obduction is the spiritual successor to the game Myst, which was the bestselling PC game from 1993 till the mid-2000s. However, today’s demographic might find it falls short in a number of areas, riding the tailcoats of a genre that has been well executed over the years – a genre which may have been left behind in favour of simpler games.
