Cory Schmitz, who you might know as the designer of many Vox Media logos including the Polygon logo, tweeted yesterday afternoon about his #adventure on Mars in a little #game called Naut.

If you are a sucker for open worlds with little purpose beyond being explored. A Tourist-type, drawing pleasure from discovering what’s over the next mountain, and the next, and the next after that. Which is to say Naut is my sort of game.
Hopping in the space Cadillac and driving towards the hills. After flipping my car on a rock, I walked and walked. It began to rain, then lightning. At the base of a mountain, I looked up. The hill appeared too steep to climb, but the game’s quite glitchy, mostly for the better, making an impossible ascent doable. At the top of the hill, I turned around and looked back on where I’d come from. In the distance, I saw my home and something else. Maybe another house? Maybe a gas station? I’ll find it tomorrow at lunch.
Naut is made by Lucie Viatgé, Tom Victor, and Titouan Milletand, members of Klondike. It’s available for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC for the price of your choosing .
