First, make sure to do everything in the village. It's basically the tutorial and teaches you pretty much everything. Probably takes 30-45 minutes.


After that? Go to the moon. Pretty sure they nudge you there from the village dialogue. It's small and pretty quick to see everything there is to do.


After that? Go wherever you want. The more you explore, specific things you'll want to do will become clearer. But the core of the gameplay is exploring and reading and learning about what's going on. You are never gated on power-ups since they don't exist, only by knowledge.

i really wanted to like this one but the flight controls and overall pace kept me from putting more than maybe two hours in. the look and tone are fantastic, so maybe someday when i'm feeling more patient

Flying definitely takes some getting used to it. It was definitely turn off during the early hours, but you get better at it. And also realize that auto pilot exists and kinda works most of the time.

I just finished Outer Wilds, and it might be one of the best blind exploration/“puzzle” games I’ve ever played. I genuinely did not want it to be over. Challenging mechanics without being too frustrating, and an amazing feeling of accomplishment as you figure out what’s happening and what you need to do.


Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, this game is fucking fantastic!! Easily one of the best games of this generation. The design of some of the planets is wild. I'm pretty far into it, I think.


Also, I'm glad to see that the 2 of us continue to have great taste in games.



Lost hours trying to do 2 things before looking them up:




It's late, so I'll try that tomorrow. I'm pretty frustrated that I'm fighting the mechanics at this point, and not just missing a piece of a puzzle. I was so reluctant to look anything up because some of the discoveries I've made are so, so satisfying. Really just disappointed that I've lost real time to trying to puzzle my way out of strict and/or janky mechanics.


Game is still great though despite these problems.

Do we have a thread for sharing terrible album art? I got one I'd like to drop somewhere.
