A witty and smitten recreation of a time gone by, which you'll forgive tedium if you share in the nostalgia.
A satisfying detective adventure based around a weird and wonderfully imaginative retro internet.
Hypnospace Outlaw captures the essence of being online in 1999, while delivering a series of clever and engaging mysteries
Hypnospace Outlaw is a time capsule of the late '90s internet that has a message for today.
Hypnospace Outlaw is a hilarious satire on internet stupidity and venality
Unlike Strafe, Hypnospace Outlaw delivers on exactly what it sets out to do right out of the gate. It’s got some issues but most of them stem from wanting more, which is a good sign.
While the concept behind Hypnospace Outlaw is solid and the recreation of the 1990s web experience will elicit feelings of nostalgia , I feel that it is an experience that many will get enough of after twenty to thirty minutes of futzing around HypnOS and the webpages.
Hypnospace Outlaw is a perfect recreation of what the internet once was, and in some ways still is: a glorious mess of friendship and anarchy. It's probably good we don't have auto-playing music anymore, though.
There is just SO much to do, to explore, so many secrets I know I’ve missed, and bits I want to return to. This is completely splendid.
Journey back in time as an online detective policing a compelling parody of the nascent net, with dodgy graphics, tinny music and a host of weird websites to explore
