Here's a very brief look at Cyan Worlds' Obduction

Obduction

Myst developer Cyan Worlds wants to wish you a happy new year, in the only way they know how: with a freaky alien world full of puzzles and (hopefully) badly acted FMV. Their new trailer for Obduction shows off such a world, and I cannot wait to explore it, prod a few levers, then give up, as I have with all of Cyan Worlds' previous games.

Between Obduction and The Witness, 2016 should be a good year for exploring strange locations and solving puzzles from a first-person perspective. Obduction is currently expected to be done in the second quarter of this year, and Myst composer Robyn Miller is onboard.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
