This was a stupid idea. Why did I spend so much time on it?
Anyway, Outer Wilds was pretty much everyone's game of the year and for good reason. (It also happens to be on sale at the moment, if you're interested.) I've heard it described as having a Myst vibe by people who have actually played Myst.
Extra special thanks to Dmytry Lekhno for providing a full-3D... recreation? of the game's spaceship that was invaluable as reference material.
