Outer Wilds writer has now written for The Outer Worlds, so I’ll never get the names right

For the past two years, I have confused the name Outer Wilds with The Outer Worlds. I will say one space game's name when I mean the other. I will expand one name into 'The Outer Wilds' and trim the other to 'Outer Worlds'. I will trip and combined the two into 'Outer Woilds'. I hate this. AND NOW, Outer Wilds writer Kelsey Beachum has…

Clockwork spacefarer Outer Wilds lands on Steam today

The celestial bodies have spoken. Outer Wilds' interstellar time-loop has reset once more - and this time, Epic exclusivity has been removed from the galactic equation. After making the announcement back in March, Mobius Digital's clockwork solar system arrived on Steam today - leaving you with no excuse for not picking up the RPS crew's favourite folksy space romp.

Friendo, you can now set a date for your adventure into Outer Wilds: June 18th. That's the Steam release date for the fascinating sci-fi puzzle sandbox, publishers Annapurna announced today.

Outer Wilds launches into doomed miniature space today

After watching with an astronomer's practised, patient curiosity for over six years, Mobius Digital have finally launched their grand-yet-personal space adventure, Outer Wilds. Judging by the excited warbling I hear from the RPS treehouse and beyond, it's rather special. A grand but short space adventure (extended by time-loops), set in and around a series of tiny but detailed worlds full of strange and likeable people…

Outer Wilds breaks atmosphere on May 30th

Outer Wilds - not to be confused with The Outer Worlds - finally has a release date after yonks in development. Mobius Digital say it's landing next Thursday, May 30th.  I'm a bit excited for this one, as I've had an eye on it ever since its early days as a short, free proof-of-concept demo in 2013. It's your first day as a low-budget space…

Outer Wilds returns from the void with a new trailer

Do you remember Outer Wilds? If you've forgotten, that's understandable - the last time we saw anything concrete about this miniature-scale game of space exploration in a solar system mere minutes from destruction, it was three full years ago.Between now and then, all we've seen was a brief confirmation that the game (which first surfaced as a prototype demo in 2013) was officially in full-time…

Outer Wilds Moves To Full-Time Development – Yay!

I've just checked and we first posted about Outer Wilds [official site], a lovely space exploration game created by Alex Beachum, about two years ago. Since then it's gone on to catch the eye of many others, including the 2015 IGF judges where it scooped the Excellence in Design prize. Returning to the site to see how Outer Wilds was faring I see that it's…

Small Names Take Big Prizes: 2015 IGF Winners

Winners have won, partiers have partied, and another year's Independent Game Festival awards are done. It was a less predictable list of finalists this year than in recent times, and in turn the winners weren't ones you could spot a mile off or who'd already won in years past. I'm happy about that, though it does leave me in the mildly awkward situation of not…
