In The Outer Worlds, there are specifically bred swine referred to as “cast pigs.” You discover them in a manufacturing facility farm close to Fallbrook, a smuggler’s city on a distant planet. Possibly you climbed using the sewers and emerged face to ass with one, or entered via the entrance door for a sweeping view of their pens. However, there they’re: swine coated in bulbous, meaty tumours that swell up, drop off and are floor and canned to be bought commercially as “boast worst.” As one in-sport advert says: “You have not tried the worst till you have tried boast worst.”
Megan Starks was a part of the staff that authored this sick state of affairs. A senior narrative designer who holds an MFA in artistic writing, she pens plot-traces, dialogue, characters, and even merchandise descriptions at Obsidian Leisure. After writing for dense RPGs like Tyranny and Pillars of Eternity II, she’s now engaged on the developer’s newest bold universe, set in a hyper-capitalist dystopia run by competing firms.

Main the ventures are Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, co-creators of the original two Fallout video games and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. The look, really feel, and premise of The Outer Worlds is deeply paying homage to Obsidian’s Fallout: New Vegas, however, set in space. There is a continuous movement VATS-like fight system referred to as Tactical Time Dilation, first-individual RPG gameplay and loads of attraction/persuade/intimidate dialogue choices.
What makes the brand new title interesting is its wealthy world and absurdist humorousness. “Leonard is rather more of the darker philosophical emotional influence-kind humour, and Tim is a bit more upbeat and type of that Futurama model,” stated Starks. “It is mixing the two collections that creates the distinctive humorousness in The Outer Worlds.”
Starks cites the TV present Firefly, the movie Brazil and the Coen Brothers as a part of the crew’s inspiration. David Williams, the first methods designer at Obsidian, stated Wes Anderson movies like The Grand Budapest Resort and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou lent their whimsy.
