Developer Mobius Digital's wonderful sandbox space exploration adventure Outer Wilds (which was named Eurogamer's favourite game of 2019, don't you know) will be waving goodbye to Epic Games Store exclusivity and hello to Steam on 18th June.

I played this for about half an hour a few months ago and didn't get it at all. That time was spent bouncing off stuff and mining on the moon, so I just filed it under 'not for me' and put it off.

BUT THEN...I decided to give it another go last night, and it was a completely different experience. For whatever reason, I was able to get a grasp on the controls, there was no mining, I noticed the music much more and then, just as I was starting to find out about some of the relics on the moon, a Thing happened and it all became even more interesting.

Really glad I picked it back up again, it'll be interesting to see where it goes next!

Just realised that I have this on the Xbox (apparently it was a freebie for watching the 2018 E3 conference on mixer) is it worth a play through?

Long Live Switch Squad!

I completed this recently and thought it was excellent.
The side missions for the crew are really good and while it is stripped down there's still the possibility to build characters.
I went with no combat ability and everything in lock picking and persuasion and it worked well.

I highly recommend this and it's on Gamepass so if you have that it's free so why not.

Makes sense, what with there being no combat in the game at all.
