Minecraft Meets Metroid – Survive, Explore and Build on a Mysterious Alien Planet Full of Dangers and Secrets.
In Exotic Matter, you’ll find yourself shipwrecked on an alien planet, light-years away from earth and your primary mission is to survive. Freely explore the open-world of planet ‘Xcylin’ and dive deep into the roguelike underground facilities of an extinct race to fight the Thanatos and craft your way back home to save yourself and the entire human race. Exotic Matter is not only a game; it’s a full-fledged voxel engine that enables players to create their items/weapons/blocks and even their planet types.
“Most voxel games don’t give you any direction. No specific goal or mission to accomplish. With Exotic Matter, we are trying something different. We drop players on an alien world with a singular goal and a few hints about how to accomplish it, then leave how to proceed up to them. It’s a voxel survival game with a goal, a story, and a carefully designed procedurally-generated Metroidvania world. Not only do you have to survive but you have to explore countless alien facilities in order to succeed and improve your abilities. How the story unfolds, and whether or not you’ll make it, is totally up to you. I like to think it’s a unique approach to the genre: a voxel Metroidvania!” –Florian Frankenberger, Lead Developer
