Outernauts launched by Insomniac on Facebook

Insomniac Games, developer of the highly-lauded Ratchet and Clank, Resistance, and Spyro the Dragon series' has announced the launch of their latest effort, Outernauts, a Facebook title that sounds an awful lot like a rad version of outer space Pokemon.

The description on Insomniac's webpage describes it as a game in which you can "capture, train, and evolve exotic beasts" as well as "master a wild, untamed universe of over 30 planets and arenas." All of which sounds quite a bit like an amazing version of extra-sci-fi Pokemon. We're not in the habit of trying out too many Facebook games, but given Insomniac's incredible pedigree, and the idea of space pokemans...we're going to have to give this one a spin.
