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.”

Announcing 10k

For a long time now, my team and I had been working on adding ways for our users to create their own COSM content. Originally, when we had a full development team and high hopes for lots of Early Access sales, these were going to be part of the COSM release. Now, it's pretty much just me working on the development and it just wasn't feasible to make tools for both flat screens and VR, so we're launching them as a new VR-only application, titled "10k".

But don't worry, existing COSM owners will get a copy of 10k for free when it launches! And we do plan to keep updating COSM with content created with 10k - COSM will be the "view-only" version of 10k.

We are also still looking for beta testers, so please contact me if you're an existing user with either an Oculus Rift + Touch or a Vive and interested in the beta version of 10k. I'll be sending Steam Keys out shortly!

Check out 10k here.

I am VERY excited that this thing is almost ready for people to use. We demoed it at VRLA in May, and people had a lot of fun using the tools (even with the bugs!).

Thanks everyone

Next release this Summer

Great news everyone, we are releasing the creation tools, where you'll be able import structures and datasets from the Protein Data Bank, Neuromorpho.org, Google Poly, and Quandl.com, as well as upload your own files (png/jpg, fbx and obj models, csv, pdb, swc). Again, thanks for your patience - we are a (very) small team, and the scope of this thing is huge.

Let me know if you want to be a beta tester, I'm going to put the beta build up for people to test in a week or two.

THANK YOU!

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!
