Exo One is a surreal exploration game where you guide a small transforming object to drift, flow and soar across enigmatic landscapes with a gravity based movement system. The game aims to create an out of body other-worldly experience with atmospheric, diffused visuals are merged with ethereal sound effects and a hypnotic electric guitar soundtrack.

NotesAccessibility Notes

Exo One has fairly strong vibration and screen flashes from the beginning that can not be turned off in the settings.

The movement tutorial can be confusing since the game objectives are not explained and the only information you are given is one button prompt at a time until you have learned how to maneuver across the landscape fully. There are no clear directions on what to do or where to go, and there is no map.
