I am hooked.  Of course with my backlog I am going to wait for a sale but I will be picking it up because it looks neat.

The game looks cool and I think it sounds like if you're a fan of the Myst-type gameplay this is a great one for you.

I'm just annoyed at how many kids are now going to grow up and constantly misspell "abduction".   *Fist Shaking*

I think I'll wait for the VR version of this, but I'm looking forward to it.

I'll be interested to see how many kids are jumping on the "Bring back Myst" bandwagon.  Also, "obduction" is a real word.  It's something to do with ocean and land tectonic plates meeting.  I'm betting it'll tie in.

I've heard nothing but raves for this game.  I almost picked it up, but realized I'd have to clear 20GB to do so.  Possible, of course, but I don't feel like going through that right now.

Heh, I didn't even pick up that "obduction" isn't a common word. Some words sound like they'd translate easily between Norwegian and English, and this is one of them. The Norwegian word that I was associating it with without thinking was "obduksjon" (English -tion words typically equate -sjon in Norwegian), which means "autopsy".

I was familiar with the word "subduction" but not so much with its opposite cousin.  icon_wink

I'm sure it will be joining my backlog in the near future.

Yeah, to be honest I think the last time I heard the word obduction was probably back in Earth Science class something like 25 years ago, haha.  It's not even in Google's dictionary, but that's not saying much as the Chrome dictionary seems pretty limited.
