What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“COSM Worlds is a work in progress but we’re ready to get the community involved. Our first release includes cellular and molecular landscapes to explore in 3D and VR.

We're close to launching creation tools where users can customize and create their own worlds to share with the community. Once enough worlds are created, both by the community and through our own collaborations with scientists and educators, we will eventually get to full release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate being in Early Access through the end of 2016.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have more worlds to explore, more data types visualized, more processes simulated, and will include COSM Worlds Creator, which gives users the ability to build and experiment with worlds, and share them with friends and colleagues. We will feature some community-created worlds in future Steam releases!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version is fully functional (except creation features) and will launch with two immersive worlds, exploring the human hand and a water plant.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We're offering COSM Worlds for a lower price in Early Access because COSM Worlds Creator and the increased amount of content in the full version will add a lot of value. Your support while we're in Early Access will help us make the full version even better!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We’ll be asking for community requests for which worlds to build next. For example, would you rather zoom into a butterfly wing or a computer chip or a cookie? We’ll also be asking the community for feedback regularly, especially on our creation features when they are available.

Community members will be able to get advance access to our creation features, COSM Worlds Creator, which allows users to create and share their own Worlds.”

NEW VR CONTENT: Mouse Brain and Solar Energy

Hi Everyone!

It's been a little over a year since our last update, and we've been spending that time retooling our visualization engine to give you a better VR experience, and more accurate molecular content.

We also added support for more data types, including MRI scans, and financial data sets from quandl.com. This will mean a lot more to you when we release our creator tools, but it's very exciting to be able to integrate so many different data types. We will update the non-VR versions within the next week or two.

Last, I just want to say: thank you so much for your support! We're a very small team making something with a huge scope, and the more people who download COSM, the more we can focus on development of this important project.

About This Game

COSM Worlds is a viewer that lets you zoom into any object down to the molecular level and explore the tiny alien worlds within. COSM Worlds offers both VR and non-VR experiences, for OSX and Windows.

Explore structures based on real datasets

Real 3D structure data is used to visualize large molecules, DNA, and cells. We plan to add MRI, CT scans, additional cell types, and much more.

Watch real-time simulations

See molecules scan DNA to express genes, or carry sacs of molecular cargo through the cell. We’ll be adding more simulation features to pack the worlds with action.

Learn more about what you see

Worlds are annotated with descriptions so you can learn more about the processes happening around you or write your own tours and use COSM to teach others.

Build your own worlds and share with friends

We’re creating our own world-building tools for use by the community so together we can create even more.

Connect tiny worlds to build a multiscale simulation of the universe

As more worlds are built, they can be connected through zooming. Together we could build a model of the entire universe!
