About the game
Firmament is a new puzzle-adventure game by the legendary game studio behind the best-selling games Myst and Riven. Featuring deep storytelling and world-building, discover the story of this seemingly abandoned world as you explore and unlock the mysteries of three unique Realms and beyond!
The title’s Kickstarter campaign amassed over $1.4 million USD across more than 18,000 backers.
Explore a Fantastical Steampunk World: Firmament invites you to explore the legendary deep world-building Cyan is known for. It is a fantastic steampunk visual feast with thrilling new sights to see around every corner. At the same time, its world feels completely plausible, as though it were constructed with a bigger purpose in mind…
Solve Puzzles: You carry with you a device called an “Adjunct” as you explore. This Adjunct is your interface as you interact with the various devices throughout the Realms of Firmament. Employing the Adjunct to solve the puzzles you encounter will bring you ever closer to unlocking the secrets this place holds.
Discover The Story:You are not entirely alone in Firmament. In addition to The Adjunct, you are joined by a mysterious apparition, who has a story of her own to share with you. As you explore you will be introduced to 3 Realms – each with secrets and mysteries to reveal. What purpose do the Realms serve? Can the spirit who accompanies you be trusted?
Reveal a Realms-Spanning Mystery: Are the realms of Firmament abandoned? What are these giant, mysterious machines scattered throughout the world? What is their purpose? What part do you play in this grand mystery? Seek and uncover the answers for yourself.
Built for both 2D and VR Displays: Firmament supports both 2D and VR play. The VR experience includes Free Roam and Teleport modes and supports Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Rift S, and Quest 2 via Oculus Link. There are also many “comfort level” features, such as enabling smooth or snap turning, quick travel up stairs and ladders, vertical height quantization, and more!
