Outer Wilds is an exploration space mystery about a solar system trapped in an endless time-loop. After 20 minutes of game time, you must start again – but each time brings a new opportunity to learn how you ended up on the planet and solve the secrets of who built the strange galaxy. As you do so, the world evolves and opens up new secrets.

It's a game that looks relatively predictable, but with each loop grows both in complexity and ambition of its theme. What starts off as a game about mystery and survival, in its iterative rebirth and life process, has the capacity to shed light on life, death and what it means to be human.
