Within the Cosmos, Indie’s Answer to The Outer Worlds, Releases Next Month



Within the Cosmos

Within the Cosmos, the upcoming sci-fi indie epic, is set to release next month.

Despite Within the Cosmos entering development over three years before the announcement of Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds, the games share significant aesthetic overlaps. For an indie title, Within the Cosmos boasts some stunning alien skyboxes and environments.

Within the Cosmos, though, appears to have a greater focus on its shooting mechanics, while still allowing for a wide margin of RPG-related gameplay.

Described as a “story-driven single-player first-person adventure game,” the game’s setting takes place in 2278. As one of the 500 people to work for the UESA (United Earth Space Agency), players must work to establish life on a planet called Berith II to ensure humanity’s survival.

While unravelling the mystery surrounding the disappearance of their crew, the game’s protagonist must explore Berith II and its surrounding planets to piece together what happened.

Even though the game has a small budget, Within the Cosmos appears to be a well-polished foray into the first-person adventure genre. For those interested, be sure to check the game out on IndieDB ahead of its May 31 release.

Tim Schafer: No Plans for Brutal Legend 2, but ‘Never Say Never’



Brutal Legend

Double Fine’s heavy-metal mashup, Brutal Legend, has gone some time without a proper sequel and Double Fine head Tim Schafer thinks there is still some waiting to do.

During a press Q&A session at E3 2019, Schafer was asked about the possibility of a sequel to the Jack Black-starring action-adventure game. Though Schafer says Double Fine would like to move on to something new first, a sequel may certainly still happen.

“That’s a fun universe, too, that I’d love to back to, but now we’ve been in sequel mode for a few years and it’d be nice to do something new…but never say never.”

Schafer commented on the possibility of a Brutal Legend 2 two years back, stating that fans will eventually see a sequel. During that same report, Schafer teased that Brutal Legend 2 would be an expensive game to make.

This most recent update at least reaffirms Schafer’s fondness for the series, even if the Double Fine team wants a break from sequels.

Brutal Legend released to generally strong reviews, with many praising its comedy and unique world.
