Eric A. Anderson ’98 recently completed a successful Kickstarter funding campaign, along with Cyan Inc., for a video game project. Obduction is a spiritual successor to Cyan's previous games Myst and Riven.
The funding effort raised $1.3 million in 30 days with over 22,000 backers, surpassing the initial $1.1 million goal.
Along with helping organize and plan the fundraising effort, Eric created all of the animation and video used in the pitch. He will serve as art director of the new game, which is currently planned for a 2015 release on Mac and PC.
Since 2011, Eric has been creating artwork and doing world-building on the upcoming Playstation 4 game the Witness, which is currently one of the most anticipated titles on that platform.
