We'll Go Some More A-Roving: Extrasolar


A potentially habitable planet has been discovered outside our solar system and, right now, the eXoplanetary Research Institute is looking for volunteers to explore the surface. You'd be controlling a rover and gathering data on the planet and its inhabitants, whether flora or fauna. Sound good? That's the premise of the new game from Lazy 8 Studios, makers of Cogs. It's called Extrasolar and it's nigh on impossible to figure out how it'll play at the moment since the marketing takes the form of a fictional website for a fictional company. We're promised a narrative experience and it sounds like players will work together to unveil the planet's mysteries over time. The website is a good read and there's at least a polite nod toward actual space science history. Hopefully that will carry through to the game. Trailer/recruitment video below.
