Venture Into The Unknown With IGF Winner Outer Wilds
Outer Wilds is an exploration game about curiosity, roasting marshmallows, and unraveling the mysteries of the cosmos. Explore an alien world of campfire tunes and celestial wonders that evolve over time.
Investigate tales of quantum phenomena and launch probes into the depths of space. The answers are there for those who seek them. Fasten your hiking boots, check your oxygen levels, and venture into the unknown.
We here at Mobius Digital are very proud to begin development to complete Outer Wilds, the 2015 IGF Grand Prize Winner. An alpha version of the game won top honors as well as Excellence in Design this March.
The game lets players explore a world both tiny & infinite, uncovering alien wonders and oddities, searching for the answers to the unknown mysteries that seize their solar system.
The creative core that made Outer Wilds will continue to be at the heart of creative development at Mobius. Creator Alex Beachum has been a designer at Mobius since early 2014, and we'll be retaining the same level designer, composer, writer, and other integral members from prior development.

We strongly recommend playing Outer Wilds with an Xbox 360 gamepad. If that’s not an option for you, check out the “Input” tab of the game launcher window to view/modify the mouse and keyboard mappings.
Check out this link if you need to remap specific xbox controller inputs. Eventually mouse and keyboard inputs will be supported by the in-game button prompts, but for now please excuse the clunkiness.
