You’re trapped in a time crowdfunding loop. You play the game over multiple play throughs. It’s this crazy solar system and you just want to unwrap the mystery of what’s going on.” Space exploration is suddenly a crowded field these days. What sets Outer Wilds apart is it’s scale: instead of an endless galaxy the team at Mobius Digital is crafting a more intimate experience. “We have nothing but respect of games like No Man’s Sky with a procedurally generated galaxy where you can fly forever,” said producer Syam, “but part of the beauty of Outer Wilds is that it’s this contained solar system where all of the different planets and astral bodies have been very meticulously designed. So it still retains the feel of space exploration, and the kind of infinite look and feeling when you look into the stars, yet it’s also a very contained experience.” The time loop aspect of Outer Wilds also sets it apart. “We wanted to make something where things change over time,” said Beachum. “Like a planet that gets broken apart by a metros impact. So if you visit it towards the end of the twenty minutes its going to be in shambles. But you can see things that you wouldn’t be able to find if you visited it while it was completely intact.” Beachum started Outer Lands as his senior thesis at USC’s storied Games program. That program is to video games what USC’s film school was to the movies in the 1960’s and 70’s.

As a crowdfunding strategist, Wright teaches project creators how to raise money online, guiding clients through the process before, during and after launching a campaign. “When you sign up to give money through any of the websites, your contract is between you and the person you gave the money to. The Kickstarter, the Indiegogos, all of those websites have a clause in there saying that they’re not responsible for that,” Wright said. Like any other actor in the marketplace, crowdfunding platforms have “an obligation to act fairly and non-deceptively,” said Helen Wong of the Bureau of Consumer Protection and the lead attorney on the Chevalier case.
