Robyn Miller, the sound artist behind the original Myst and Riven games, has joined the team at Cyan Worlds to work on the soundtrack for Obduction, which was a Kickstarter success story two years ago. Not much has been released about the game… a few screenshots, a trailer, a few hints to boot. This author is keeping as far away from spoilers as possible to keep the experience virgin.
This is really exciting news for adventure game fans because anytime the Miller brothers have collaborated on a project, magic has happened. Robyn’s soundtrack work was instrumental in creating the atmosphere of the first two Myst games. Where the story pushed the boundaries of what had been done in a game before, so did the soundscape of the original Myst. Lightning stuck twice with Riven. Will it strike a third time?
