Description of Obsidian

One of the very few "Myst clones" games I actually like, Obsidian is much better than its overhyped predecessor for its novel premise that combines hard sci-fi with surrealistic fantasy, and innovative puzzles that are not out of place.

As a scientist who created Ceres, an intelligent machine that utilizes nanotechnology to repair the earth's polluted environment, you must venture into the mysterious Obsidian, a structure built by Ceres, to rescue our partner Max. Great puzzles, graphics, and overall atmosphere. Too bad it's all over a bit too soon.

My mistake, I was able to run it using an emulator, but I can't install it because it's not compatible with 64-bit Windows...

There's no executable at all...any thoughts?

Help! Downloaded Obsidian for windows and can't install it as it's missing "_setup.dll".

How do I open this on a MacBook Air, 2018?

Some have gotten it to run under "Wine" on Linux machines
