Outernauts blasts off on Facebook, now available in open beta

Back at E3 in June, we were given a detailed look at Insomniac's Outernauts, a Facebook game that can be easily describe as "Pokemon in space" that will have you traveling the galaxy, collecting alien creatures and training them in battle. If the gameplay sounded interesting to you then, you don't have to wait any longer to play, as Outernauts is now live on Facebook!

After you jump into the shoes of an Outernaut, you'll travel from planet to planet gathering treasures and alien species, defeating enemies and completing quests via a text-based (but in-depth) storyline. You'll earn fuel back at your Home World that can be used to travel to the far reaches of space, and can evolve your aliens to higher, stronger beings over time.

We'll have more complete thoughts on Outernauts at a later date, but our first impressions are definitely positive. If Outernauts fulfills its potential, we could be looking at the definitive "Pokemon-like" game on Facebook. Want to try the game out for yourself? You can do so by clicking on the link below.
