Outer Wilds Review
Posted: 17 months ago, last updated 5 months ago.
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.
