Obduction is an adventure game in the vein of Myst by the same creators. The player's character is teleported to another world which he will find mostly abandoned. It is up to the player to find out what history unraveled there and how to get back home. The game features multiple endings.
Just as in Myst the player spends most time exploring the environment and interacting with machinery. There is no inventory in the game so everything has an in-world solution. The common theme in the puzzles in Obduction is teleporters. The teleporters in the game tend to teleport not only the player but also the immediate surroundings between four distinct worlds.
