Outer Wilds is a narrative puzzle game set in a clockwork sci-fi solar system that tasks players with exploring a small but intricately designed set of planets in order to solve a mystery.
It made its debut on PC via the Epic Game Store, and Game Pass in May 2019, before coming to PS4 in October 2019, and Steam in June 2020.
Annapurna Interactive recently announced that they would be working together with Blendo Games to release Skin Deep, an immersive fist-epersoon shooter that focuses on “sneaking, subverting and sabotaging.”
In other indie game news, Mediatonic has delayed the Xbox and Nintendo Switch versions of Fall Guys. An update from the developers saw them develop delay the game, in order to ensure that crossplay between platforms is implemented.
“This delay gives our team some time to add features like crossplay, so when we add new platforms, players will be able to stumble in harmony with their pals, regardless of their platform of choice.”
