We are super excited to release Beacon 38 for Apple & Android tablet & phones! We finished up Beacon as we started the Outer Wilds campaign, and the game shares many of the same design principles (and designers) as Outer Wilds!
Beacon 38 is a mobile exploration game where you use sonar to navigate through a dangerous, beautiful alien world that constantly surprises and challenges. See if you can navigate your tiny scout ship past massive predators, mysterious creatures, and unknown peril to escape the 38th Dimension!
Using the core mechanics of sonar pinging and navigation, you make your way through an ever changing, evocative ecosystem that must be understood to be overcome: the game consists of over a dozen sectors each with its own mechanics, creatures, and challenges.
With an art direction that blends Art Deco beauty with Lovecraftian horror and an engaging story world set in deep space, littered with lore, the thin red line between danger and safety is literally at the player’s fingertips. Do you have what it takes to make it out of the 38th?
From creative director Loan Verneau:
"There are many strange places out there to explore, unknown stars and spatial anomalies, strange universes and realities. If you are anything like us, which is likely if you are reading this, you just wanna hop into some rugged spaceship and blast off into the unknown.
The Outer Wilds might be out of reach for the moment, Mobius Digital is proud to offer you a ticket to the 38th Dimension! A One-way ticket of course, for it’s up to you to find your way through its dangers.
So pick up your smartphone or your tablet and venture into the strange world of Beacon 38!"
Updates on our games, our process, and the joys of being Mobius Digital.
