You are an astronaut awaking from cryonics not in the solar system, but... out there... in a far and unknown place of the galaxy. In Out There, you will have to survive, tinkering your ship with what you can gather drifting in the void, and spot garden planets to refill your oxygen supply.

Space is an hostile place ; dangerous and mysterious adventures will mark each step of your travel.

  1. A fun time waster
    by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

    While some aspects definitely have that "mobile port" feel, it's still a fun little game with some roguelike mixed with resource management. The art style is great, procedurally generated galaxy makes for plenty of replayability, and the story is actually somewhat interesting to follow.

  2. Out There: Omega Edition
    by XXXXXXXXX, United Kingdom - Jul 20th 2018

    +Gorgeous art style
    +Everything in the game is well designed, in particular the ships and the alien life forms
    +There are several different ships, each coming with pros and cons meaning each ship has a unique play style
    +Usually when you jump to a new star system you get a journal entry/mini text adventure which all have great stories but they're let down by the writer's knowledge of English (I'll come back to that later)
    +The galaxy is procedurally generated each time you play so you'll never see the same galaxy twice
    +Interesting storyline with an interesting yet mysterious protagonist
    +Outstanding (even outstanding doesn't do it justice) soundtrack that even rivals that of FTL
    +Great gameplay based around resource management, kind of like FTL with more resources and no combat
    +The game has no combat, a bold move that work fantastically, fighting to survive against the environment is much more interesting than fighting to survive against hostile life forms
    +As you get further into a run you begin unlocking more advanced technologies to help you get further
    +Abandoned ships always seem to turn up just as your ship becomes obsolete which is perfect
    +When you encounter alien life forms you often learn parts of their language
    +You frequently come across mysterious alien materials and artifacts which often provide ways of improving your ship
    +It's impossible to see everything this game has to offer in one run so you're definitely going to come back for more

  3. Great idea, not so great realization
    by Murta, Croatia - Jan 4th 2018

    Out There: Omega Edition is one of those games whose concept is far better than the implementation. It is supposed to be a resource-management space exploration with high replay value, but it is so focused on luck (AKA random number generation) that everything else is completely overwhelmed by it.

    It is clearly not developed fully. Too bad, because the idea is soooo good.

  4. An interesting mixed bag
    by lconanl, Romania - Jul 22nd 2017

    Ever wonder what a crippling sense of hopelessness in the middle of nowhere, where any decison you make could potentially be as much of a boon as it could a crushing blow to your already dwindling chances of survival? Or maybe truely feeling alone; the last of your kind, stranded out in an unforgiving and uncaring universe? Ever wonder what it's like to be... Out There?
    This game is best played in a dark, quiet, secluded space. The art in phenominal, and though it still does kind of feel like a mobile game, the changes they made to "Out There: Ω Edition" are enough to give it an entirely different experience... as if every time you start a new game it isn't already entirely different.

  5. Mobile port FTL clone
    by Ishee, Germany - Jul 7th 2017

    Out There: Ω Edition is a resource management rogue-like game which shares many similarties with FTL except it has no combat. Without any combat you are only fighting versus the environment to survive.You do this by drilling rocky planets for iron to repair your hull, but landing on and leaving those planets costs additional fuel. Probing gas giants yields fuel necessary to travel from system to system, but orbiting those planets damages your ship's hull. If either resource (or oxygen) reaches zero, your session ends

  7. Nice roguelite
    by Nimmy, France - Aug 19th 2016

    Comparisons to FTL are wrong, as this game is definitely not trying to emulate it, as there is no fights for example, you just jump from galaxies to galaxies, collecting raw minerals, and being severely limited by your inventory. There is a lot of strategic elements due to your small inventory, and it's actually quite enjoyable. As many roguelite, a bad streak of RNGs can completely screw you, which makes some of the endings hard to get. Very fun game, I recommend.

  9. Not quite the FTL alternative I was hoping for.
    by lewis35437, United Kingdom - Mar 27th 2016

    It's an interesting game, but the gameplay is a bit too passive to give it a higher score.

  10. A unique blending of genres.
    by Allie Collins, USA - Mar 13th 2016

    I was drawn in because it seemed like an FTL style of game. It is, to a limited extent. Instead of combat, your focus is on resource management. This can provide a different sort of challenge. With achievements, nice graphics, and a fair amount to do, it is worth checking out.

  11. Amazing space voyage
    by Calandil, Spain - Nov 12th 2015

    This game is a fantastic first trip "out there" in the space, and even after several playthroughs, is a nice and fun time-eater. Its challenging, too, so those who want achievements, go for it!
