Hi, everyone, yesterday Ainia
pointed the community on the Cyan forums to a very interesting new indie game, and while it isn't really Myst-like, although in a way it is too, it is more futuristic and I'd say maybe even part of the future of computer/adventure games, I thought, esp. you creative people here might be interested and find inspiration in this one too, just watch the video, or at least have a glance through and look into what this is all about ... Enjoy ...
Here's Ainia's post with links
This is my comment
Hey fellow explorers,
Here's another very promising indie game in the works: Essence
The development team's website
seems to have a puzzle
of sorts for fans to solve, too.

A very auspicious and ambitious project! They're getting better and better ... Thanks for pointing us to it, Ainia ...
'Xing - The Land Beyond
' is already quite spiritual and 'beyond', but this one is really very 'beyond', spiritual and surreal lol, in a very positive way, and in general this development doesn't really surprise me in these times we are in right now and further ahead, and of course it is full of gorgeous beauty in a completely different way, has an awesome soundtrack and an interesting and different storyline progression with much puzzle/riddle/quest solving involved ... The whole game or I'd better say world or universe even is based on moving forward or proceed through real deep research and exploration etc. ... There's also a stretch goal going for the VR, which would be very appropriate for this kind of world and exploration ... they're already working on a future implementation ...
Yeah, and they're even from my hometown, Berlin, Germany ... That small puzzle on their website was easy btw, and they intend to post more of those little brain teasers ...
Ok, I'm wishing them definitely the best of luck and success and of course much much fun and excitement for that perpetual stream of even more creative ideas and inspiration ... "
