You’re the newest member of Outer Wilds Ventures, a fledgling space program searching for answers in a strange, constantly changing solar system.
Who built the ruins on the moon? What lurks in the heart of Dark Bramble? Why are you trapped in a time loop, and can it be stopped? To solve these mysteries you’ll have to venture into the most dangerous reaches of space.
The planets of Outer Wilds are packed with hidden locations that change with the passage of time. Visit an underground city before it’s swallowed by rising sand, or explore the crust of a hollow planet as it crumbles beneath your feet. Every secret is guarded by hazardous environments and natural disasters as the solar system spirals out of control.
Strap on your hiking boots, check your oxygen levels, and get ready to venture into space. Use the Little Scout space probe to illuminate dark caves, take photos, or test for hazards in your environment. Track down mysterious audio with your Signal Scope or use your Translator to decipher an ancient Nomai riddle. Navigate the darkness of space with your jetpack and ship.
There’s a lot to discover in the Outer Wilds.
The game started out as a student project, with a free "Alpha" version made available in 2013.
After the game garnered more and more attention (and nearly 90.000 downloads) Mobius Digital picked the team up in 2015, after the demo won the Seamus McNally Grand Prize and Excellence in Design at the Independent Games Festival.
The full game was then to be funded through fig, a crowdfunding site, with an initial pitch for a 2016 release and a goal of 125,000 $, that was met.
Initial fig campaign link:
Fig-backers that chose PC as a platform "will get both an Epic key upon launch and a Steam key later when released on those services. " ()
Annapurna Interactive announced that they will be publishing the game in 2018:

ReasonUser banned (permanent): Trolling, inventing highly inflammatory accusations. No moderator created any such thread, no such thread was deleted
I love you guys, but I can't stay in this place anymore.
You heard about Etika, how this forum's sjw nutjobs gang up and shat on him? Hell, even a mod made a thread that mocked his suicidal mindset. Now they deleted said thread to cover their tracks. They're always covering their tracks. And now they are deleting posts and banning users that are pointing it all this shit to them.
How much of a hypocritical pieces of shit can they be?
No, this shit has run it's course.
Hope you guys are ok and we'll see each other in T7. (Bumping everyone: "Fight me!")
It truly doesn’t. Stop asking for handouts because you aren’t getting lucky. It’s Gacha, them’s the breaks. Handing out selectors fucks up the meta because everyone rushes after the same units. I didn’t get to pick any of my characters (yet), it was all rng.
You seem like an idiot though, so we can agree to stop talking now. Read ’s post for a nicer shaped version of what I’m trying to say.

ReasonUser warned: lazy devs rhetoric
The 301 is still fine as is dear god man. The 99 needs a slight nerf. The longbow needs a slight nerf. Disruptors might need a micro nerf again. Do that and this game would be better off, but a few weapons need ever so slight buffs.
I think the G7 could shooter every so slightly faster. Eva could do every so slightly more damage possibly. Same thing with Moz.
I just don't understand why they are so damn lazy with legend and weapon balance. And don't tell me they aren't lazy man. They have buffed Bloodhound like three times and they still suck. Caustic sits here and is just a walking target. Nobody uses him for very good reasons. He's terrible.
Pathfinder has fucked up audio, can grapple literally anywhere all the time, has a great hitbox, and is basically unstoppable for movement. How hard is it to keep these things in line like a normal dev team would? These guys are the slowest to balance anything I have seen in a long ass time.
I think all legends should be able to climb slightly higher. Pathfinder is way too fucking in his own world with movement. Wraith and that tiny as hitbox is also ridiculous with very few things against her besides she can't grapple. It's time they actually started making this game better again.
Yeah the comments there are mostly terrible but when you repeatedly kick the hornet's nest what do you expect exactly? The vast majority of the criticism seems to be civil so I hope that doesn't get drowned out by the loons harassing the devs.
ReasonUser Banned (1 Day): Antagonizing Another User, Gendered Language
Dizzy is a free win with Violet, Charles, momo and a bevy of other units. She’s only annoying when you’re extremely undergeared compared to her or in a 1v1 whyyyyy scenario. Immunity is also an option to dodge her initial s3 and put her down quick.
She requires a cleanser and a solid DPS to put her down. She’s annoying but I routinely play against dizzies without my own and do just fine.
Laiza just likes to bitch. There will always be something that makes this the worst game ever as they actively bend over backwards to appease the fans. I guess without people like her, we probably wouldn’t have all these changes, so that’s a small boon.
ReasonUser Warned: Inflammatory Community Generalization
I quit arena already so it's a moot point. Fuck gacha PvP and fuck these incompetent devs for being unable to even make it halfway decent. Fuck Smilegate *in particular* for having a policy to never nerf limited units no matter how absurdly bullshit broken they are.
If the Korean player base weren't keeping them honest I wouldn't even be around at this point. Thank the ones who don't put up with BS for all the changes coming down the pipe. Too bad this thread and reddit continuously prove that western consumers are all too happy to suck the fat corporate pipe to actually bother fighting for their own livelihoods. Imagine if she shared Basar's star sign. Just .
Shit would never have gotten as bad as it is now.

ReasonUser Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory Point of Comparison; Numerous Prior Bans for Inflammatory Accusations and Trolling
Have you not recognized the irony in your advice to not diminish other people's opinion as you simultaneously insult my maturity, imply that I am also petty and infantile, attempt to assume the moral high ground and repeatedly suggest that I am getting too "worked up"?
Personally, I think the greater danger is in pretending we can't call something what it is for fear of god knows what. It's how we get Nazis walking around again like that's an OK thing, let police off the hook for murdering black children and allow rape to be reframed as "sexual misconduct". But I digress...
You should also note that I never actually called anyone any names. I simply described a behavior.

ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Dismissing concerns surrounding hate, underage sex, and harassment groups
Honest question, why do people care so much about the THQ stuff. It doesn't effect your life or games or anything whatsoever. Yes I get that the website is disgusting, but just like me, it sounds like most people didn't even know it existed until this afternoon and everyone is just outraged because everyone else is outraged. Can we all take a step back and just say "look it's dumb that they thought it was a good idea to promote their company by going on a website that is bad" and just leave it at that? Why does everything have to be taken to the nth degree? People calling for firings and boycotting games and devs because of some bad PR decision seems so pointless.
ReasonUser Banned (Permanent): Sexist trolling over a series of posts; account still in junior phase
Dan and Ben seem to get way more (public) abusive messages than Abby but the difference is that there's a lot of patronizing men who come to defend her (because of her "weaker" gender), which then creates its own neverending vortex of shit. This is the problem with all gendered spaces, especially if it involes a lot of young men: introduce a woman no matter what kind, and things will blow up.

Red TextWe would like to reiterate that we have no intention of banning all gatcha games -- the two that were banned were judged to have particularly egregious content and/or mechanics that were difficult to ignore. We do not see this as a slippery slope situation or something that extends to the genre as a whole.

ReasonUser Warned: Inflammatory generalizations (accusations of shilling)
Yes. When I want actual discussions I go to the corny guys who hop up and down and yell like they just won the lottery over announcements that is in no way fake and is no way meant to go viral.
But this take makes sense from someone who thinks an actor being in a video game was hype.
If I wanted the worst take I'd rewatch easy allies reaction to that first devolver digital e3 conference. It was like they were being personally attacked. Talk about not having a sense of humour and not enjoying life. It was embarrassing to watch.
Easy allies is garbage and honestly their fan base is as obnoxious as the hosts are. Constantly acting like they're astro turfing and shilling for them in every thread they can. Yikes.
ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Personal Attacks and a History of Hostility; Accumulated Infractions
And you've been positive on next to nothing that didn't fulfill your view you fucking coward prick.
But you'll never see this post anyway, you fucking coward. You Blocklord. You Hidestan. You Miserydodger.
Sorry, Sinder's blocked me, as he had a bunch of people becuase he's a tiny, small man who cannot take a dissenting opinion. He's a small little coward. I don't block anybody because I want the real shit, even the real shit that hates me.
...I don't expect much of a response out of this post in support of me but whatever, he's a little bitchboy who can't deal with dissenting opinions.

ReasonUser Banned (Duration Pending): Making inflammatory false equivalencies surrounding harassment, hostility, and a history of downplaying the influence and impact of harassment movements.
It would have been a major red flag hadn't they fired her. She misappropriated members of the community, citing whataboutisms with unrelated gamergate bullshit. She punched down and attacked him with a baseless accusation about sexism. It's pathetic to see posters here stanning for her bullshit.
It's fucking pathetic. You don't attack customers for engaging in a dialogue that you yourself created. You would get fired for that behaviour justifiable in most places.
There was no condescending tone. Stop defending harrasment FFS.
Fucking unreal to see this bullshit here.

ReasonUser Banned (3 Days): Derogatory language and antagonizing other members
you:His ult is literally useless for goats. Only Zen, Lucio, and Zarya's right click can benefit. Invincibility has less utility when you're in either a A) all-out close range brawl or B) trying to quickly move towards the enemy. Furthermore, invincibility is better used on squishy DPS heroes who can melt the enemies given just a few more seconds of damage output and survivability.
His main heal and ability heal are good for goats, though.
