Pretty compelling story. On my playthrough, I made every effort to keep people alive, which seemed to pay off. I'm not sure what would happen if I decided to kill people instead. Is Nyx's presence necessary for survival? Also, I promised Subtle I'd never lie to him and I kept that promise, but I'm curious how he'd take if I did lie at the end.
Very disappointed with the game. It's extremely linear and there are no challenges at all. The few decision points the game offers are so obvious I only died 4 or 5 times before ending the whole thing. The story is not that great, too, though there are some interesting analogies with reality. A shame, really.
Brilliant, gripping storytelling. Hard to put down. I enjoyed the original Out There, which was set in a randomly-generated, sprawling sci-fi universe. But I love this new direction even more, as well as the characters that drive the story. This game trades in the arbitrary chance mechanic for a focused, gritty storyline that brilliantly expands on the Out There universe. While the theme of improbability of survival is important, it's just not as fun or as effective as a great story. I think Mi-clos went in the right direction, and did a stellar job at it.
Engaging story but has some kinks It's an engaging story but a little repetitive when you make the wrong choice and die, and there's no option to save your exact point, so it usually goes back a chapter before and you have to go through your choices again. When the captain got no response from the Redemption, the story just kinda hung and refused to advance. *Update* after a few more attempts, it started to work again.
Great prose, weak mechanics The story is fantastic but the implication that it's branching is an illusion which leads to frustration- either it's dangerous and too unclear you're picking a dead end path, or safe but you waste time exhausting options until you hit the right one. Are there any actual impactful variables?
Nothing like original Out There. A boring sequence of dialogs with pictures. You die if you don't answer correctly and start from few lines ago.
