about Lazy 8 Studios
Founded in 2008, Lazy 8 Studios found quick success with its award-winning game Cogs. This gave Lazy 8 the freedom to pursue risky ideas and explore new genres, culminating in a whole new interactive experience with Extrasolar.
Extrasolar puts you at the heart of a sci-fi thriller as you explore an alien planet one unique, beautiful photo at a time. On its surface, Extrasolar looks like a legitimate scientific expedition. When you apply to the program, you’re promised a chance to control one of the many rovers that the eXoplanetary Research Institute (XRI) has put down on the surface of an alien world. As a citizen scientist, you volunteer your time to help explore the planet 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 wrapped up at the center of a conspiracy, not sure whom to trust.
