Cyan, the Myst and Obduction lot, have another adventure in the works, and more mysterious worlds filled with peculiar clockwork contraptions. Firmament will see players explore four different realms, accompanied by a floating clockwork pal and a chatty ghost, calling to mind a steampunk Destiny, minus all the shooting.
The teaser shows off quite a bit, though Cyan is keeping schtum about the story for now. Here’s all that’s been spilled so far, from the official website.
"The game of Firmament is a resplendent, magical, journey — a monumental voyage through four diverse and curious realms, working in concert with an ever-present, clockwork companion, and the support and instruction of a long-dead, ethereal mentor. Everything is not as it seems."
While Obduction had VR support, Firmament seems to be billed as a VR game first and foremost. A non-VR version might be safer, however, for those of you who, like me, have a tendency to throw nearby objects whenever a puzzle becomes too frustrating.
Platforms and headsets have yet to be announced.
