About the StoryOut There is an award-winning space exploration game blending roguelike, resource management and interactive fiction.
You are an astronaut awaking from cryonics not in the solar system, but... out there... in a far and unknown place of the galaxy. In Out There, you will have to survive, tinkering your ship with what you can gather drifting in the void, and spot garden planets to refill your oxygen supply.
Space is an hostile place; dangerous and mysterious adventures will mark each step of your travel. You will not only meet intelligent species that won’t care about you, but also deal with ancient powers linked to your destiny and the fate of mankind itself.
Survival and understanding of what is really at stake in the galaxy is the core of what Out There has to offer.

by sushabyeThe loneliness of the long distance space traveller. I love the turn of phrase in the writing, the adorable little vignettes, and the sense of personality of the protagonist, lost in space and going slightly crazy. Really feels like it sits in the tradition of French science-fantasy: I can imagine a Moebius comic strip telling this tale.
It even has a central plot, with an interesting and satisfying conclusion, going for it too. But far too few people will actually get to see that plot, as the game is ridiculously hard. Impossibly hard. I ended up playing a modified version just to see the story.

Surely the reed bank counts as a wild place. While it gives you so much, you've never tended it, not really, not like you do with your garden. It's something like the forest, then, but much safer to search without attracting attention....
