    In Exo One, each world has its own characteristics, which make the journey truly unique.

    As confusing as this might sound, Exo One is every bit relaxing as it is intense. Its exploration of the mysterious and deep reaches of space combined with its perfectly arranged soundtrack creates a different kind of sci-fi experience that should definitely be checked out by fans of the genre. As far as I know, this is Exbleative’s first title, but it’s an absolute banger. I’ll be eager to see future projects from the studio, science fiction-based or otherwise.

    Intriguing and startlingly original, Exo One offers a quiet, meditative experience that's both foreign and mysterious.

    Despite offering a faster-than-light flight through the galaxy, Exo One‘s wider angle is a slower-paced and melancholy journey through a beautifully-realised cosmos. There are some issues with bugs, and the unhurried pacing won’t be for everyone, but Exo One is an unmissable voyage for those who know what they’re getting into.

    This absorbing, flawed, daringly singular adventure firmly places Weston and team among the kind of risk-taking explorers to which his game pays tribute. [Issue#366, p.120]

    A very powerful experience, which can be completed in less than three hours but capable of burning itself into your eyes and mind.

    Short and sweet but in no way significantly dented by its own strict vision and run-time, Exo One‘s picturesque voyage through one far-flung planet to the next, though not without fault, is more engaging and novel than it is mildly indulgent.

    A not so new experience but well crafted.

    Exo One it's about exploring the unknown in a sphere-like alien spacecraft that uses the environment's energy and gravity to progress in this journey.

    The graphics are pretty much spot-on. A simplistic but clean weather system, flora, and these kinds of monuments/relics all around.

    Sound like it is pleasant to the ear, the sound of the rain touching the ground, the sound of the craft gliding through the wind currents and diving inside the vast open oceans.

    As for bugs, it has very few when it comes to gameplay, especially playing a specific level around mid-game where you need to do the slingshot effect to exit an asteroid's orbit. This level is pretty fast to complete, but sometimes you might be stuck because of the other asteroid's gravitational field pulling you more than it should from overly long distances. I haven't encountered anything more.

    Load times are only present when switching between levels and hidden by an animation which can be problematic for people with schizophrenia.

    The game is about 2-4 hours. It all comes down to if you're enjoying your surroundings and exploring or just rushing it.

    Story-wise you will have some dialogue and pictures thrown at the screen. The voices sound distant and fictional-like.

    The controls are basic and intuitive. I recommend playing with a controller for more chill and immersive gameplay while sitting back on your chair/couch/bed.

    Summarizing looks beautiful from start to finish. You will immerse yourself into it by how good it looks and sounds. Delivered the concept it was supposed to transmit, spectacular addition to the genre.

    Maybe they could do more, but for now, it is a solid game.

    8/10

However, this is a brilliant game to relax to and sit back to; you solve simple puzzles as a sphere/disc accompanied by a beautiful soundtrack at points and brilliant graphics.
    The story is short and sweet. Everything about this game is short and sweet.
    Kick back, relax and enjoy this absolute spectacle of a game.

    This game is painfully average with controls that make you feel like you are constantly fighting the camera to see where you are going.This game is painfully average with controls that make you feel like you are constantly fighting the camera to see where you are going. Nothing here is new, the story is not thought provoking at all, and the worlds have the depth of a puddle. Once you get past the awe of the art style, (which is actually pretty good) you will notice that after the 3rd world which is 10 minutes in you've already seen everything the game has to offer. This makes the rest of the game a dull slog to the finish line with some levels very uncomfortable overstaying their welcome in run-time. The developers seem to have had a great idea here, but when push came to shove, they couldn't flesh it out enough to make it work well which ended in a lot of bad design decisions. I don't think this game is worth the buy and you will probably get more enjoyment watching others play this walking sim rather than playing it yourself. Expand
