Outer Wilds - Launch Trailer.
In Outer Wilds, the player-character is an astronaut that starts out camping on a planet near their rocket. Within 22 minutes of game time, the local sun will go supernova, ending the game, though the game will restart at the same point. Thus, the player is encouraged to explore the local solar system (referred to somewhat inaccurately as a "quirky and condensed galaxy") to learn how the astronaut got there, why the sun will go nova, the secrets of the Nomai, the alien race that had built this galaxy, and other information and secrets that can be used on the subsequent replays of the game to explore further. For example, in order to use the rocket, the player must guide the astronaut to a local observatory, where the launch codes are located. Once the player has done this once in one playthrough, that information will not change in subsequent ones, so on the next playthrough, the player can bypass the observatory and immediately launch the rocket with the known codes. Though the galaxy repeats the same 22 minutes each time the player starts the game, the galaxy will change over the course of that period, making some parts of planets accessible only at certain times; one example is a pair of planets orbiting so close to each other that sand from one planet is funnelled over to cover the other planet, making its surface inaccessible later in the 22 minute period. The player-character has health and oxygen meters, which are replenished when the character returns to the rocket. If the character's health or oxygen should run out, they will die, but respawn back on the home planet.
