Insomniac and EA's Outernauts begin Facebook exploration today

Outernauts, the adventure RPG from developer Insomniac (Ratchet and Clank, Resistance series) and publisher EA, launched today on the solar system's most used social networking site. The game sounds like Facebook Pokémon, as players "capture and train exotic alien beasts for battle."

"By bringing the breadth and elements of console gaming to a social game, we hope to give our fans – both old and new – a unique gaming experience on Facebook," said Insomniac founder Ted Price.

Go ahead and try out the game now while your teacher or boss is distracted.
