The Story

The Outer Wild

“No one knows what happened to us. Only that it did.”

It’s a generation after the unnatural event that had destroyed mankind. A new breed of creature, mutated from man, now runs the earth. Survivors live in colonies meant for their protection — but mutations continue, and our numbers are dwindling. Man’s time on Earth is over.

“It’s as if Nature had turned its back on us…
                                                         … and decided to start over.”

Now, a girl named Laura might hold the key to saving us all. But when an experiment goes horribly wrong, she flees the colony to head for a refuge that may or may not exist — a fabled safe haven under a mysterious red star, where life is rumored to be as perfect as it should be. She is pursued by a bounty hunter named Cole, who ultimately helps her find this better place. But to get there, they must brave a dangerous wilderness infested with creatures both known and not.

“There’s no humanity left to save.”

As Laura discovers the lands outside the Colony for the first time, she finds this world is nothing like she had been told. Morality seems to have been lost along with mankind in the crisis that had killed the earth, and the lines between man and animal are now blurred. Now, as she and Cole pioneer their way towards a better future, Laura questions whether mankind is worth saving — and in the end, she must face a final sacrifice that will determine whether there is a place for humanity at the end of the world.
