On its surface, Extrasolar appears to be a scientific expedition that has opened the doors to volunteers who can help direct rovers around the surface of an extrasolar planet, exploring it one photo at a time. Before long, the story back on Earth becomes just as compelling as the startling discoveries on the planet as our player finds herself at the center of a conspiracy, not sure whom to trust.

Extrasolar is pioneering new gameplay and technology. Gorgeous images of the planet's surface are rendered in the cloud and delivered to the player every few hours, making each player's experience unique and raising the bar for the appearance and immersion of Web games.
