CSI Skill Tree: Outer Wilds

The CSI Skill Tree series from the Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University examines how video games envision possible futures, build rich and thought-provoking worlds, and engage people as active participants in unfolding stories.

In our latest episode, we discuss Outer Wilds, a 2019 adventure game about unraveling the mysteries of a solar system caught in a time loop.

Our guests are Randy Smith, a video game director and designer known for his work on the Thief series, the indie sci-fi gardening game Waking Mars, and superbrother’s JETT: The Far Shore, and Luc Riesbeck, a space policy and research analyst at Astroscale U.S.
