Mission Status

It’s been a while since we last broke radio silence, so we just wanted to confirm that development on Outer Wilds is still underway!

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 the meantime, so feel free to check it out (if you haven’t already exhausted its secrets) while we work on the full release.

A big thanks to everyone who’s been playing, writing, talking, and trading crazy theories about the game.┬áStay tuned for future developments, and happy trails!

  4. Vox says:

    Really glad to know that this game is still being worked on, I was starting to get worried. Is it crazy to ask for an expected date for new content?

    I left the system on one of my games. still going on.

  12. Headless says:

    I loved how freeform the exploration and storytelling was in the alpha. The humor was spot on as well. I hope you can keep that up while still making the plot mysterious and adventurous.

  13. Diego says:

    Great news!! The alpha was definitely one of my favorite recent gaming experiences. Beautiful and strangely horrifying at the same time.

  14. Zach says:

    Hell yea!

    A friend showed me this game quite a while back, I am happy to see that it is still being worked on. I still play the game now because it is fun to see everything that it has to offer.

  17. Noah says:

    Dont ever quit this! This game is already awesome but it has so much potential. I would put this in my top five games ever.

  18. Daniel says:

    I really like this game, but unfortunately, it keeps making my computer freeze and reset.

  19. Stikenir says:

    Just to tell you this… I’ve just finished the game (explored every planet) and it was the best experience I had in a while.

    Every planet was unique and interesting… I loved messing around with the tornadoes in Giant’s deep, I loved how mystified I was once I got to the Quantum planet and I won’t ever forget Dark Bramble. I’ve played Amnesia, slender and outlast, and yet, Dark Bramble scared me the most.
    I saw something moving, I got scared, and once I decided to go check what was the shiny light, I shat my pants.

    This game is a masterpiece. I’m so happy that the Project is still going.

    Any progress? Love this game but don’t want to encounter too many spoilers in the pre-release

  21. Scott Vater says:

    Is there not a forum or something for this game? Downloaded it but can’t get my look controls to stop moving. No matter what…whether I have my controller, mouse, and/or keyboard unplugged my view shoots straight up and I won’t stop spinning.

    I’ve tried starting the game without the peripherals plugged in and everything…simply doesn’t work for me.

    Any ideas?

  22. Crowbar says:

  25. Brutux says:

    And i’m sure a lot of people out there feels the same!
