Breaking the Laws of Physics

So we finally tried updating the Outer Wilds project to Unity 5 this week!

This is what I saw. Those who have played […]

I’ve been chipping away at Outer Wilds in my spare time for what feels like an eternity (or at least something measurable on a geological time-scale), writing code by the flicker of candlelight* and occasionally updating the site in a vain attempt to reassure our fans that we haven’t completely abandoned the project.

We’re currently working towards a full release of the game, which will feature (among other things) a completely fleshed-out version of the overarching mystery. The alpha release will remain available in […]
