Extrasolar is an incredibly unique video game that launched earlier this year. It is a web-based experience where players remotely control a rover on an alien planet, taking pictures as you go. The goal is to document interesting land formations and even any forms of plant life. The first season is available to play for free and works on most any device with a web browser.
However, Season 1 was just the start. Back when I registered there was an opportunity to upgrade your account to a paid version, which promised access to any future chapters. Although many have upgraded, it turns out that these fees have only helped the existing game stay available online. That’s why Lazy 8 Studios have come to Kickstarter to fund Season 2 of Extrasolar.
Considering the first season left players on a bit of a cliffhanger, not getting to see Season 2 (and eventually Season 3) come to fruition would be a huge bummer. Obviously, it wouldn’t be fair to spoil the story, but basically there is a lot more going on than players might initially expect. Unlike Season 1, Season 2 will be available only for paying customers. That means you’ll have to either upgrade your account on the website or pledge to their Kickstarter. Every tier from the $15 limited tier onward will grant access, which is actually cheaper than the site’s $25 XRI Pioneer upgrade. Of course, that option denotes access to “future missions” which means they’ll get more than Season 2.
The funding goal Extrasolar: Season 2 needs to reach to become a reality is $85,000. I have a feeling if they can get enough people to try the first episode that this goal will be no problem. It’s hard to explain what makes it so neat, but playing should help others understand.
