Indie publisher Annapurna Interactive has announced Outer Wilds, a first-person space mystery game about exploring the horrors of the universe.

The universe in Outer Wilds is caught in an endless time loop, which is at the center of the game's mechanics. 

"The planets of Outer Wilds are packed with hidden locations that change with the passage of time," says the game's description. "Players can visit an underground city before it’s swallowed by sand, or explore the surface of a planet as it crumbles beneath their feet. They also have access to a variety of unique gadgets that help them probe their surroundings, track down mysterious signals, decipher ancient alien writing, and roast the perfect marshmallow."

We first saw the game at the Game Developer's Conference in 2015 where it looked quite different.

You can check out the trailer for the game below.

Outer Wilds is scheduled to release in 2018 on PC and unspecified additional platforms.


Our Take
I definitely dig a lot of what I'm seeing here. Space horror is rare and while this doesn't exactly fit the bill, a lot of what it does show seems cool.
