Reviews

“This is challenging stuff, but it's wonderfully creative with it, and I'm not sure I can recommend it enough.”
9/10 – Eurogamer

“Out There Somewhere might just be the best puzzle platformer you’ll play this year”
5/5 – Gamezebo

About This Game

From the artists behind the smash hit Towerfall comes the critically-acclaimed Out There Somewhere.

Inspired by games such as Cave Story and Super Metroid, you play as an astronaut stranded on a strange and dangerous alien planet. Low on fuel, your only hope for escape is to make your way to the planet’s core.

It will take brains and quick reflexes to survive in this incredibly clever action platformer.

“Out There Somewhere isn't a normal game, though: it's a platformer with a devious twist and a truly shocking difficulty curve. It's a platformer with a very late level, for example, that contains absolutely no platforms at all - just empty space and a doorway right near the ceiling. This is challenging stuff, but it's wonderfully creative with it, and I'm not sure I can recommend it enough.”

-Eurogamer 9/10

I love this game, i recommend you buy it, now. Here is why:
- really good soundtrack.
- nifty pixelated visuals.
- a well use of a simple game mechanic. It was so fun and enjoyable figuring out how to get to the other side.
- smart and thoughtful level design.
- it has a game of thrones reference.
- perfect length, not the "are you serious?! Is this the end of it??" short, and not the " finally i finished this game i was getting bored " long, it was just perfect.
- it Costs 4 SR ( $1 ?), it should be more.
- good soundtrack. Really good.
- damn grigori is still ...

looking forward to your future work.

not only you get a good game for 1.99$ but also get a second free key for a game called Polarity that cost 10.99 $ ( has cards too) tone of respect to the devs
- simple and short plot , you need to kill the bad guy in a space battle but you en up in an unknown planet and you have to repair you space ship and defeat him once again, took me 1h to finish it but if you're fast enough you can finish it under 20 min.
-cute 2D art/8 -bit graphics style, very beautiful and well made ( bring good memories of the old days )
-smooth gameplay , easy and fast to learn how the game works but require a bit of skills and speed to solve the puzzles ( there's walkthrough on youtube if you're stuck in a lvl ) . you have a gun to teleport ( portal style ) and a gun to kill monsters .
-no voice acting ( 8 bit style so it's understandable), great sound tracks ( also 8 bit style)
- most of the achievements are easy to get ( can be done in the first playthrough) but the others need some skills ( check youtube and steam community for help )
- steam trading cards + other cards that you get from the second free game
- no bugs or glitches and can be played with a keyboard or any controller
i highly recommend this game for those who love cute old style challenging platform games , worth the money ( 0.25$on sales) and you get a free game with it so go for it
9/10
