Space doesn't have to be full of aliens and mutants to be scary. Sometimes, just the solitude and isolation of its cold vacuum is enough. This lonliness is exactly what Out There, the new title from Mi Clos Studio, capitalises on, stranding you in run-down ship, floating in the darkness of the void.
Awaking from cryonics in an unknown part of the galaxy, Out There's theme of isolation is immediately apparent. Your craft is in disrepair, and you must immediately start gathering supplies to stay alive.
The game's sci-fi universe is not completely devoid of life, however. Intelligent alien species populate distant planets, waiting to be discovered. However, these extra-terrestrials are just as likely to completely ignore you as help you.
Out There's procedurally generated gameplay will create a different user experience every time you restart, drawing from over 300 game book adventures to build its stories. There is a central plot that runs throughout all games, though it has three possible endings depending on your decisions and actions during your adventure.
All budding space adventurous can head over to the App Store where Out There is currently stranded. You can rescue it for £2.49 / $3.99.
