ViDiOTS Season 01 | Episode 08: Mystery of the Great White North
Our next episode is one of our greatest adventures yet! James and I were invited to Cyan Worlds to play the spiritual successor to one of the most iconic games of the 90’s…Myst! For those of you who’ve played it, do you remember all those Zombies you had to kill? Me neither. Don’t tell James! (More about that later…)
We got to try Cyan’s VR masterpiece called OBDUCTION (James just threw up again…still struggling with that VR!) and to meet none other than the one and only Rand Miller (Co-creator of Myst) and Chris Doyle (Director of New Experiences) as they walk us through this incredible game…hoping we don’t break it.
Being such a huge fan, I NEEDED to play this game. I knew my best bet would be to “fabricate a plausible reason why James would need to take us to Spokane. Hence, the shooting of the zombie! (As they say, “reality eventually catches up to you…virtually.”) So I learned a very valuable lesson about friendship (and getting thrown up on).
James was then kind enough to challenge me in a racing game called FORZA (being that racing is kind of my “forte”). Unfortunately this was an XBOX game and just as I’d gotten used to the shapes on PS4 I suddenly had to memorize the alphabet. I think there should be another way of saying “YOU LOSE.” We actually discuss this more in a “therapy session.”
