Outer Wilds is an open-world mystery about a solar system trapped in an endless time loop, which has proven so popular that people are already calling it a potential Game of the Year for 2019. But it’s not flawless. Or, at least: not every player has enjoyed every minute of the game. Jordan invited her friend and colleague Maggie Tan onto the podcast to talk about how very physical frustrations can affect the enjoyment of a game that’s all about the acquisition of knowledge.

This episode contains spoilers for Outer Wilds, and one spoiler for Oxenfree. Outer Wilds is a game best experienced with as little prior knowledge as possible, so if you haven’t played it and think you might like to, maybe save this episode for later.
