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?

Easy:

It's all in the "i"s

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?
