Leon's Microblog – Posts tagged "Outer Wilds"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZdZKolMIl0 – Listening to the full song that was used in the '78 Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy for the first time… wow, it's like the exact midpoint between Outer Wilds and Noita.
I'll always remember Outer Wilds for having possibly the most blatant "hidden in plain sight" secrets I've seen, in the sense of one thing that you see 5-to-20 times before you notice it's something you should investigate (not because you're ever directly told to investigate it).
Thinking about how Outer Wilds's tutorial included a museum area letting you examine all the platforming elements – purple crystals, ghost matter, etc. – fully confident the player would still be thoroughly amazed when confronted with actual puzzles involving them 4 hours later.
