It’s been over six months since Cyan Studios had Obduction make its way to desktops, today the creators behind Myst and Riven announced that it had released support for its puzzle game on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and OSVR.

Starting off as a timed exclusive for the Oculus Rift, Obduction has now added support for Oculus Touch, letting players use the hand controls to physically interact with the in-game environments instead of using a game controller. For those that have already purchased the game the upgrade for VR support are free, and there won’t be any price increase for Obduction with the increased functionality.

In Obduction, players are transported from Earth to the planet of Hunrath by an object that falls from the sky. From that point players work their way through puzzles plus a twisting and turning story, filled with a cast of colorful characters. Obduction picks up the torch from the creators’ past work in Myst and Riven, carrying it on to a new generation of puzzlers.

Obduction was another Kickstarter success story, raising over $1.3 million in funding from just over 22,000 supporters in 2013.

Available on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and OSVR for $29.99, Obduction can be purchased through Oculus Home, Steam and The Humble Store.
