Outer Wilds

A while back, writer and narrative designer Kelsey Beachum was working on Outer Wilds, the fantastic space-adventure game with a very cool twist that we won't spoil (just play it when it comes to Switch!). When The Outer Worlds — Obsidian's "Fallout in space" game — came out a few months later, people were very confused, including many journalists who constantly had to check if it was the i one or the o one (and it's never the one you think).

Luckily, Beachum had an answer:

Unfortunately, that helpful way of remembering the difference quickly became obsolete, as Beachum was hired by Obsidian just a few months later.

And now, with the Outer Wilds DLC finally announced, Beachum told her Twitter following a new fun fact: she was working on both at the same time. We're pretty sure this is the stuff that anxiety nightmares are made of, or that Beachum will somehow cause a confusion paradox and implode the universe. Either way, we're impressed.

But with all the DLC out, how on earth are we supposed to remember which ones Beachum worked on?

The Outer Wilds DLC, "Echoes of the Eye", will release on the 28th September on all platforms except the Switch, which is due for a Holiday launch.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to have a lie down. Or was it a loe down?
