Outer Wilds is a time loop, zero-direction walking simulator / puzzle game. The universe ends after 20 minutes, and in that time you need to solve what's happening and stop it (I think). I never finished the game because after 10 hours I still felt like I was making no progress. The control scheme isn't great no matter whether you're using a controller or mouse and keyboard. There's no voice acting. It does look amazing and I love the idea of the game, I just really struggled to engage with it and ultimately didn't enjoy it. While I generally understand the positive reviews, I really don't get why it's at 40,000 Overwhelmingly Positive. Your mileage may vary.
