This is the day! The playable demo of Outer Wonders is live on itch.io!
What's in the demo
This demo is available for Windows and Linux and can be played using a keyboard as well as a controller. It is made of 7 puzzles, amounting to 15-30 minutes of gameplay overall.
As a reminder, the rules are as follows:
- playing as Bibi , you can move in a straight line in any of the following 4 directions: left (←), right (→), up (↑), down (↓);
- once you've picked a direction, Bibi will roll in this direction until it hits an obstacle;
- starting at Bibi's current position, your objective is to reach the exit of each puzzle (on the right side of the animation below, for example) by performing a sequence of such straight-line moves.
For instance, here's what happens if you decide to go to the right →, and then upwards ↑.
Some parts on the environment are interactive, such that rolling over them alters the environment, opening new paths and closing others.
Some other parts of the environment will take you one floor upwards or downwards.
This playable demo will be improved and refined on a regular basis. Feel free to give us feedback and report any bug you may encounter playing the demo of Outer Wonders on itch.io.
