Found that Desura is selling the game.
It been described as a harder version of FLT although after playing a few games I think it's about the same, although their is no crew in Out There you still have to manage your ship resources fuel, air and hull which is used up after every jump, planet landing/take off and drilling. They can all be replenished on the planets and every jump is usually accompanied by an event some times good some time bad some times static as in nothing happens. Theirs also new equipment in the forms of blue prints to find, aliens to contact, new ships ect. Graphic wise the game has a simple look with mostly static screens with the odd bit of animation on them almost like a comic in look and feel.
All in all I have found the game to be compelling to play and rather relaxing as you try juggle your resources so you can jump to one more star system where you might find a piece of equipment or resource that will allow you to continue your journey.
Small update to the game, no idea what it was but the game seems to have got easier as I managed to further than 6 system and even found a new alien ship.
Big update to the game. http://steamcommunity.com/games/334420/announcements/
Multiverse I - Cemetery Gates
First, the long-awaited 'easy mode'. We've been strongly against that in the past as it would change the whole spirit of the game.
But we think that it's a shame some people are not able to experience our game or get quite frustrated because of its evil difficulty. So this issue has been addressed.
Also, a specific leaderboard has been created for this mode.
GAS GIANT RINGS
They were missing for far too long, so we thought that adding rings around the gas giants would be a great cosmetic addition. Well, maybe it's not only cosmetic.
CEMETERY GATES GAME MODE
The most important addition is a new game mode called 'Cemetery Gates'.
In this mode, you will encounter the last 10 space ships you have lost during previous runs, right where you've left them. You'll be able to scavenge the resources that you've left inside or simply take over the ship and continue your adventure.
This mode will open up new strategies and possibilities.
It will also boost the early game, that is is sometimes slow, as you'll find more ships around the starting point (remember all those runs prematurely ended because of bad luck?).
That cemetery gate mode is a really great idea and you might be able to see more of the game without using the easy mode.
New free DLC for the game, the audio on the video not too good but it's great to see the game still being supported.
During our stream on Twitch, we have unveiled "Galactic Dusk", the second Multiverse free content update for Out There: Î© Edition! It features a new game mode and two new technologies to discover and craft.
New game mode : Galactic Dusk
In this new game mode, every solar system turns into a black hole when you leave it! This game mode is perfect for seasoned players looking for a new challenge. Their bravery will be rewarded with bonus points for exploring. Time to restart the Wormhole Generator!
New technology : Stellar Embryo
Out There isnâ€™t an easy game. With this new technology, you'll be able to create a clone of yourself in a derelict ship! Then, when you'll meet your death, you'll restart where you left your baby. And prepare for a second death!
New technology : Symbiotic Expansion
With this technology, much requested by the community, itâ€™s finally possible to add storage slots to your ship! You won' t be able to build modules in the expansion, but you won't need to stop at every gas planet!
Out There on Windows Phone
For it second birthday, Out There is preparing its debut on a new platform: Windows Phone! Woohoo!
This new free update will be released in late March on PC, iOS, Android and Windows Phone!
Nice to see that the dev are still supporting their old game, while working on the new one, the update should drop tomorrow on Steam.
We've been working for weeks now on the next update. We've migrated the source code to a newer version of Unity so most of the system-level bugs (such as unresponsive mouse) will mostly get fixed one and for all.
We're also porting the Alliance content (currently only available on Switch) wich includes new ships, new aliens, alien escort missions, updated graphics and a new ending!
Progress on the tasks is smooth. But as the update will be deployed on all platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android), it requires a lot a QA.
The good news is that we're confident the update will be ready in January!
