Welcome to the surface of Epsilon Prime.

It's hard to describe Extrasolar as a game so much as an interactive experience. As a participant, you'll be exploring dramatic alien landscapes, investigating scientific mysteries, and interacting with real characters as they work to uncover the true motives of the eXoplanetary Research Institute (XRI), a private space agency with a questionable past.

We're inviting you to be a part of this unique, unprecedented adventure.

At its core, Extrasolar is a simulated exploration of a nearby planet that plays out in real time.
