As many of you will know, The Outer Worlds It has a deep nature that does not shyly take the use of black humor.
This is no accident. As confirmed by one of the directors of the game, Leonard Boyarsky
You can find his words below:
Boyarsky: We love black humor. I like black humor. Tim Cain, the other director of the game, loves innocent humor, so we counteract each other. Every time we play together, he has always had that dark sense of humor. It is what we like to explore in this type of games. We feel that we can explore deeper issues when we have that kind of black humor in advance, so it doesn't get too oppressive or too depressing when playing. Games should be fun, but we also like to talk about some deeper topics within them.
