Recently The Outer Wilds has appeared on steam after a period of being an Epic Game exclusive. Here i want to present you a short review of my experience.
TLDR: You liked Subnautica's sense of mystery and exploration? Go buy it now, you will enjoy it, you won't regret it, you won't forget it. This is magic experience.
Not TLDR: The Outer Wilds is a game about a space exploration – te be more precise about exploration of a small solar system. You have your own ship, you are free to go anywhere you want. And that's it – i can't say anything more because everyone should play this game as blind as possible. To say anything more is to spoil the game.
But i can't leave it without saying more so i want to make comparison – in my opinion the closest game to The Outer Wilds is Subnautica – only TOW is no survival game – it's an adventure game. Also there are no real enemies, there is no fight, no action. TOW is about exploration. You will explore different biomes, meet different enviromental mechanics, discover secrets. And oh boy this small solar system has some hidden stuff waiting to be discovered.
The whole thing comes with a beautifull, climatic music. OST of The Outer Wilds is a type of OSTs you will search for on spotify and listen to for many hours after completing the game.
It is currently on steam on -30% discount and i really encourage everybody to try it, even if you are not that much into exploration games – this is a one of a type experience (maybe Subnautica comes close enough).
WARNING: Game is for one playthrough only – depending on your exploration pace you will complete it in about 10 to 20 hours.
Also do not look anything about The Outer Wilds on internet before completing it – you will regret reading any spoilers.
If you decide to play it – take your time. Let yourself sink in the Universe.
