OverviewOverview

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.

What's unusual about the game, is its ability to create a tangible feeling of motion through your slight interactions with the tiny craft. It looks like an alien exploration game by feels like surfing. Not unlike the game Flower.

See amazing, high-sci-fi planets, float through boiling cloud formations, slide and roll down hill and mountain faces, and drift toward alien horizons. As well as that feeling of flight, it also offers an unusual way to encounter landscapes that are both familiar and alien. It's like stepping into another body not bound by the same rules as the ones on our planet.

The result is a chance to enter surreal and alien worlds and be part of the mysterious narrative that unfolds around you.

AccessibilityAccessibility

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.
