About Outer Wilds

About this game

Outer Wilds is a multi-award-winning title developed by Mobius Digital and published by Annapurna Interactive. This is a space adventure about a solar system that's trapped in an endless time loop, where you must uncover the mysteries of the universe before everything resets again.

Welcome to the Program!

Welcome to Outer Wilds Ventures, a Hearthian space program dedicated to researching the cause of the constantly changing solar system and the endless time loop that has afflicted it. Answer some of the most mysterious questions of the galaxy — what is at the heart of the Dark Bramble? Who built the alien ruins on the Moon? How can you stop the time loop, and is it even possible? 

Find Answers in the Most Dangerous Areas

Your adventures will take you to some of the most dangerous areas in the universe. Explore a city before it sinks under the sand, explore a planet as it reaches its cataclysmic end, and other, equally hazardous scenarios. 

Gear Up for the Journey of Your Life

Every great explorer has to be prepared for their journey. Strap on your boots, check your oxygen level and travel into perilous locations in order to find out how to break the time loop. More than surviving, you'll need to use all the tools available to check your surroundings, read foreign alien scripture, and — most importantly — roast the perfect marshmallow.

"As someone who loves adventure and puzzle games, Outer Wilds was a match made in heaven. It’s not action-packed, and there’s not crafting or deep survival mechanics like most...

This game is amazing! Without spoiling anything, it truly allows for emergent gameplay and exploration without any hand holding. The feeling of freedom you get is almost unparalleled, and while I am not finished with the game yet, I constantly think about it when I'm not playing it (something that rarely happens to me with my games) and I can't wait to peel back the story some more. Highly recommend!!

What a great game, really unique gameplay structure. Also can be played in VR (but the performance isn’t that great unless you have a powerful rig). Definitely a can’t miss game play experience.

Outer Wilds is a unique game: - No "clear" objective, just hints to focus your attention. - Minimalistic, functional and immersive interface. - No handholding, you have freedom to go wherever you want with the means of your choosing. - Interesting lore, which is an integral part of the game's world. Information is delivered in bite-size chunks to not overload you and keep you interested. Especially on deal, this game is worth spending few dollars on it. By buying it, you are supporting a small studio focused on delivering a well-polished product to you, and not satisfying disinterested stock market moguls.

Great game, I've been enjoying it a lot so far; it's very intense (especially if you have thalassophobia/fear of heights) but it's a lot of fun to discover each planet's secrets and unveil the story bit by bit :) unfortunately the game relies a lot on your knowledge and the info you find, which means that it doesn't have that much replayability.
