The lights are on
The latest developer to get into social gaming is Insomniac Games (Resistance, Ratchet & Clank), who have just announced Outernauts for Facebook.
The game casts you as a member of the Outernauts, an elite force created by United Earth to capture and train alien beasts in the Outernauts battle against space pirates, evil corporations, and the mysterious "Ancients."
Says Ted Price, founder and president of Insomniac, “We see a huge opportunity to reach an entirely different audience of gamers through Facebook. As we have demonstrated for nearly 20 years in the console games space, we’re confident we can help evolve the definition of a game experience on Facebook. With Outernauts, we are delivering a deep story with real RPG strategy, coupled with Insomniac’s signature sense of humor.”
The game is currently in closed beta, and will go live this summer.

Ugh all I know is that I will not be playing this.
A social Facebook game? blah. I thought they were better than that. Oh well
I, for one, am only excited that one of the world's best developers is exploring the new types of games of recent years. I mean, for God's sake, people! It's an RPG by Insomniac!
LMFAO so a great developer who made ratchet n clank and Resistance now makes games for casual *** audience?
I am not sure if I am going to play this game. On one hand, there is my love of Insomniac, on the other, my dislike of Facebook.
Come on guys you are better than this better than EA and a hell of a lot better than Facebook.
I. Hate. Facebook. Games.
Well that was boring.
Sorry, not interested at all.
