    Out There: Ω Edition's review

    Published: 2014-03-06, by Peter Warrior.

    A modern take on pulp sci-fi and gamebooks

    • High replayabiilty
    • Great mix of graphic design and text
    • No lite or trial version
    • Lack of animations
    • More languages would have been appreciated

    "To Pluto and yonder!"

    Out there follows the usual premises of gamebooks, or choice-you-own adventure, no matter how you call them. However, your choices aren't limited to choosing this or that path, as you have also to manage your ship and its upgrades, gather hints to decrypt alien languages and explore and probe planets you come by.

    This game is vast and throughout all of it you will feel like, well, like an astronaut lost in an unknown galaxy, where every single choice can save your life (especially true if you're running our of oxygen) or throw yourself into a cold and quiet death. As many of the non-key elements ('triggers') are randomly generated, replayability is assured since the very first (of many, we hope) replay.

    On the other hand, the lack of animated cutscenes and the poor quality of the current animations, regardless of how much of gamebooks can be found here; and the fact it's only translated to Alien, French and English and it'd hard to enjoy the game if you can't read fluently one or another.

    Anyways, suited for teens and grownups and anyone knowledgeable about how the biggest adventures start by opening the cover of a book...or tapping on an icon on the desktop.

    WARNING : This game is hard. Check the forum for strategy tips :

    You are an astronaut awaking from cryonics not in the solar system, but... out there... in a far and unknown place of the galaxy. In Out There, you will have to survive, tinkering your ship with what you can gather drifting in the void, and spot garden planets to refill your oxygen supply.

    Space is an hostile place ; dangerous and mysterious adventures will mark each step of your travel. You will not only meet intelligent species that won’t care about you, but also deal with ancient powers linked to your destiny and the fate of mankind itself.

    Survival and understanding of what is really at stake in the galaxy is the core of what Out There has to offer.

    Out There is a game with refreshing art. The game encourages the spirit of exploration in each of us and challenges the player to be extremely resourceful. It seems closely linked to No Man's Sky and I could not ask for two better games to embody the spirit of space adventure.

    An initially fun, but deeply flawed, very frustrating game. You can die randomly after sinking a few hours into a play. The technologies on board your ship can change each time you load it. It's a game that's really not worth playing. ... I wonder if I can get my two dollars back?
