Out There: Ω Edition
by: Mi-Clos Studio • 27K
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 : http://outthere.forumactif.org/
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.
