Shipwrecked on an alien planet, light-years away from earth - your primary mission: survive. Explore the open-world of planet Xcylin and dive deep into the underground facilities of an extinct race. Discover countless items, weapons and block types to help you reach your ultimate goal: to get back to earth and save all humanity in the process.
Exotic Matter is a single-player open-world voxel roleplaying game for PC. It features a strong storyline on a fully simulated planet with rougelike underground facilities. Exotic Matter's sophisticated facility generation system ensures that no two missions ever play the same. And it's fully moddable engine allows you to explore countless other planets that were created by the community.
Is Exotic Matter for PC or console?
For now the game is PC only (as most indie games are), but we may consider bringing Exotic Matter to consoles later on.
Will Exotic Matter run on Mac?
While theoretically we have a built for Mac, the problem with Mac computers is that most of them don't contain a suitable graphics card that is capable of running Exotic Matter. If this should change in the future, we would be more than happy to bring Exotic Matter to Mac as well - but for now, the answer is no, it does not run on Mac.
Will Exotic Matter run on Linux?
Yes, Exotic Matter is also compatible with Linux. So you can play it on your STEAM Machine, or in Ubuntu (or any other Linux flavor that is supported by your graphics card).
While we are working hard on making it run smoothly at 60FPS on every machine, Exotic Matter uses textures of higher quality and uses more non block shaped meshes than other voxel games. Therefore a decent graphics card and a dual core CPU is needed. Here are some minimal requirements we put together with our testing equipment:
Intel Core i5 or comparable AMD CPU with at least two cores, at least 4GB or RAM, dedicated graphics card like NVIDIA GTX560Ti or AMD R7970 or comparable with at least 1GB of video RAM. Exotic Matter also requires a 64bit Windows or Linux to run (there is no 32bit version of Exotic Matter).
While it is possible that the game might run with lower FPS on weaker computers, we can't gurantee it.
Does Exotic Matter have a multiplayer mode?
Exotic Matter is primarily a single-player game. But Exotic Matter's engine is built for modding, so the multiplayer/community aspect comes more through new community made planets that you can download via STEAM Workshop.
When do you plan to release the game?
Currently we are planning a soft launch on this website in late July 2017 with a STEAM release following a few months later. Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Facebook to be one of the first to know when we release the game!
Do you need a composer to create the music for Exotic Matter?
No, we already had the luck of getting David Levy on board who is a real genius when it comes to music. He will create the brilliant soundtrack for Exotic Matter.
