"Outer Wilds is a first-person space exploration game that lets players pilot a starship into the heart of a gas giant, meet fellow travelers on distant moons, and roast marshmallows beneath alien skies. The game takes place in a solar system of miniature planets as it dramatically evolves over 20 minutes, after which the Sun explodes and Universe ends. Over the course of multiple playthroughs, players will plan expeditions and discover ways to explore the most hostile reaches of the Solar System."
