    Cyan, developer of Myst, Turns to Kickstarter to Fund Its Spiritual Successor: Obduction

    Obduction will be the next game from Cyan, the creators of Myst, but only if fans can raise $1.1 million on Kickstarter by November 16. We're betting they'll make it, since Myst was the best selling PC game of the 1990s and only lost that spot to The Sims in 2002. Now might be a good time to try this classic.

    Glitch Gives Up the Ghost, Posts Great Goodbye Before Going Away for Good

    Today, the road all runners come. Tiny Speck's Glitch, which we've previously described as "a browser-centric, Flash-based, social MMORPG," has finally decided to call it quits. The company's posted a shutdown notice to the site that practically drips with sadness and humility. The game itself will close on December 9th, meaning the eleven giants must be dying, but the forums will live on until the end of the year so players can connect with one another before it's gone entirely.

    Wash Yourself With Soda Pop Scented Video Game Soaps, Because Why Not

    You have to hand it to Etsy seller Chrystal Doucette, she really knows her audience. She understands that the right mix of nostalgia, quirkiness, and fine craftsmanship is the key to the heart (and wallet) of any (credit) card carrying geek. That's probably why her store specializes in soap cast into the shape of video game paraphernalia. Consoles, controllers, cartridges, companion cubes, Rubik's Cubes; they've all been cast in soap. That's not all: Many of the soaps come in such appetizing flavors as Mountain Dew and grape soda. She even has a collection of caffeinated, pop-scented shower gels. If her work has one flaw, it's that much of it relies on stickers -- making them prettier to look at than to use. That said, it's a pretty amazing collection. See more pictures, after the break.

Though never released, Desert Bus gained much notoriety as it involved driving from Tucson from Las Vegas at 45 mph in real time. Now, after years of waiting, the game is available for your mobile device.
