Description

In Out There the player is an astronaut bound for Jupiter who wakes up from his cryogenic sleep to discover he has drifted away from our solar system and is now lost somewhere in unknown space. A meeting with a mysterious entity leaves him with a set of coordinates and the technology to jump between star systems. It is now up to the astronaut to find his way back home, or die trying, alone in the vast emptiness of space.

Out There is essentially a game of resource management. The player must keep a watchful eye on his fuel, oxygen and hull integrity gauges, as each action, each move, will decrease them more or less rapidly. Step by step, the player finds new technologies to salvage, planets to mine for resources, even derelict ships he can board. On some planets, he will also meet weird alien races who may help him on his journey, if he manages to decipher their language. Random events occur every time the player arrives in a new star system, which can put his best-laid plans in dire jeopardy.

There are no enemies to fight in Out There. The astronaut already has much to do to survive space itself and its many hazards.
