As much as I, and all of you, want Obduction out NOW, I think we all can agree that we want Obduction to be it's best. No glitches, no bugs. 100% pure fascination. So, buckle up your seats belts, because we got a little bit more driving to do.

BUT STAY EXCITED AS ALWAYS!!!!! :D

I am so glad I did not back this game. I really do have my doubts weather it will actually be released. Plus I have a fairly new computer and according to the specs will probably barely run.

At the risk of sounding snotty, I'm glad you didn't back it, either. It's something of a badge of honor to have believed in Cyan and backed the game from the very beginning. And, not once, no matter what the bad news was or how long the silence lasted, have I ever doubted Cyan would come through. And, not just produce a good game, but a very exciting, polished, high quality game.

My PC is 5 years old, I updated the graphics card earlier in the year with a model that's been out for 3 years now (and only because my original card has a well known issue that causes constant crashing when gaming). It runs modern games just fine but then I built it with gaming in mind.

I'm not fussed I'd rather see Cyan take the time and get it all nice and shiny before release then release it early and have it tank. Gaming community is so toxic these days if you put a foot wrong you get death threats on twitter : \

The rock is hard, the rock-biter is patient.

Just wanted to mention, Cyan originally thought developing Riven would take 2 years. In the end, it took them 4 years. Myst Online has been left mostly "as is" since 2008, and yet after 8 years people here are still crazy enough to come check the forums here daily.
Yeah, a few weeks of delay for Obduction is just fine :D

Also, it's worth noting an SSD is not a mandatory requirement for any kind of game. It just makes level loading faster, but doesn't have any actual impact on FPS. Graphic cards, though, are a pretty big deal, and integrated ones are definitely not built for 3D rendering... :?

Edit: and yeah, the trend nowadays is to strictly respect the release deadline - but it's also the reason some companies sell you completely buggy games. Cyan wants their game to be perfect at launch - all the better !
