See Myst's spiritual successor in action in Obduction's teaser trailer

The creators of seminal adventure puzzle games Myst and Riven are returning to the genre with a spiritual successor called Obduction. The game is coming to Mac and Windows PC this summer, and is the subject of a new teaser trailer released this week by developer Cyan.

Obduction's teaser focuses on the adventure game's varied environments and hints at its story. Here's the official description of its story, straight from Cyan:

You've been abducted from your cozy existence and added into an alien landscape with a stereotypical, Kansas farmhouse with a white picket fence. But the farmhouse is just the first building in a rather bizarre little town that borders the road - curious structures that beg questions rather than provide answers. And adding to the curiosity, you stumble upon a strange, kluged kiosk that reassuredly welcomes you to "Hunrath".

Cyan promises player freedom and "heavy choices ... with substantial consequences."
