Outernauts Facebook Game Coming From Insomniac, EA

Outernauts is coming to Facebook. EA and Insomniac have teamed up to create an adventure role-playing game that aims to bring something new to the social media space. The game casts players as members of United Earth’s elite Outernaut force. The Outernauts capture and train exotic alien beasts and uncover the riddle behind mysterious “ancients” while battling pirates and evil corporations seeking to control the galaxy. All that on Facebook.

"As we have demonstrated for nearly twenty years in the console games space, we're confident we can help evolve the definition of a game experience on Facebook," said Insomniac prez Ted Price. "With Outernauts, we are delivering a deep story with real RPG strategy, coupled with Insomniac's signature sense of humor."

The game aims to combine Insomniac’s immersive storytelling with "a unique art style and sense of wit." If it goes off the way it's planned, it will bring something really special to Facebook gaming. I'm looking forward to it.

Outernauts will launch this summer and is currently in closed beta.

All of the best people are following Stephen Johnson's twitter feed. Also, email me if you wanna.
