Outer Wilds + Echoes of the Eye Review

The launch of the first and only update for The adventure title Outer Wilds is an excellent reason to think about and discuss this small masterpiece. We’ve thoroughly explored the small world that’s trapped in a time loop, and we’re now eager to share our experiences of the space adventure with our full review.

The Outer Wilds is a space adventure. Outer Wilds, you are a newly-minted space explorer who is a member of Outer Wilds Ventures, exploring the solar system looking for answers to the fundamental question of life, the universe, and everything else in remote planets that are not explored.

Training for a short time, meeting the people of the village, and then you are already seated on a spaceship, ready to launch. What happens next is up to you can choose: Outer Wilds does not require a specific style of play and does not offer advice, and guide the player. You can head straight towards the mysterious Comet, which is circling the solar system on a vast circle, or landing on a moon in the vicinity, or remain on your home planet that, like the other celestial bodies, has numerous secrets.

In the solar system we live in, each planet is unique. Venus has storms that rage, Jupiter is a giant ocean of chemical elements, and (perhaps) previously living Mars has turned into an uninhabited desert.

It’s the same as Outer Wilds: here, each planet greets players with new circumstances, sometimes not the ideal ones. Two planets revolve around each otherand are so close that you could practically leap between them. A planet on which tornadoes are all over, sending you flying into space. A planet that has a system of caves that slowly become sand-filled. The planet even features its very own black hole where you can leap!

While the worlds are small, you’ll be able to discover a variety of interesting spots. The first is the remains of a long-gone the void civilisation, whose mysteries present inhabitants of this solar system eager to discover. You’ll be able to decipher the old writings, work out simple puzzles, and travel into places that are hard to access.

It’s not just for the sake of curiosity, but to – nothing more, not less salvaging the universe. You’ve got just 22 minutes before the supernova explodes. After which, the story begins again; however, all the previous knowledge is in your mind.

The answer for the loop is in the runes engraved on the walls and obscure structures, but to find it, you’ll need to devote a lot of time studying the documents of the old architects. The logbook of the ship, unreadable initially, turns into an investigation board from the detective films: one line leads to another, and the latest information is mapped out, and you can look it up whenever you want to refresh your memory, draw connections between the various “clues” and devise an action plan.

Outer Wilds is a game that creates an atmosphere that evokes an environment you’d like to explore. You’ll be looking to unravel the mystery surrounding Solar System. However, Outer Wilds doesn’t require you to sprint towards the answer.

Instead, you can play at your own pace is a good idea. Then, you can end your game at any point and, for instance, cook marshmallows over the flame, keep a spaceman company, or simply watch the stunning final moments of the universe with anticipation. The perpetual “zeroing” in the galaxy isn’t a problem because the map is compact, and you can go anywhere in seconds, and in certain places, you’re unlikely to stay more than 10 or 15 minutes.

In 2021, Outer Wilds received its first and only story expansion. Outer Wilds is Echoes of the Eye cleverly conceals itself within the game’s base game: it is possible to play through it and not find all the content from DLC.

However, the expansion is quite long. It opens an entirely new area to players and a new story. Additionally, it includes stealthy scenes and even a hint of terror (the game warns you of this and offers the option of turning off frightening scenes) resulting from being immersed in darkness and confronting the terrors lurking within.

The game’s supplement was darker than the game itself. Like before, you’ll be able to use the Jetpack and a flashlight to get to places that are difficult to reach and illuminate those dark areas of areas, while a variety of new puzzles are added to the game.

Outer Wilds can be described as a surprisingly good game that has won numerous awards and favorable reviews (the project has a staggering 95% overall rating on Steam by itself). Self-contained and self-contained, with the other game, it is an exciting mix of discoveries and mysteries that bring a variety of emotions for those willing to investigate the game. Do not read spoilers, and do not look up guides. Instead, simply take a deep dive into Outer Wilds with a minimum of understanding of the game, and you’ll get that elusive sensation of discovering new things.
