It’s been a lot of work to launch the Exotopia site. Soon we will be selling tickets to your space voyages.
What is Exotopia anyhow?
Exotopia is a project by Scott Kildall who is an artist in residence with the SETI Institute.
It is a browser-based storytelling experience, where you buy a ticket to an imaginary space voyage to a nearby exoplanet and get a unique, 30-day story. The journeys are rooted in actual science, and Scott has developed them with scientific advisors from SETI to imagine where extraterrestrial life could actually exist.
You buy a ticket to the voyage. There will be about 100 people on a given starship.
A guest science fiction writer crafts each voyage with multiple storylines for many characters. Each day, you get an update to your character’s story. You may be a starship pilot, a science officer, on the command team, or even a stowaway. Your character may achieve greatness, spark a mutiny, or die in space.
Your story will be told from that point of view. Each day, you will receive an episode update. Just go to the website and you will see it there. It’s kind of like Wordle, where you get a new dose each day.
Everyone is guaranteed a ticket at the start of the voyage and your unique story text as an NFTs.
And, there are rewards for your character at various points in the story: special NFTs that will be airdropped to you. You can trade, sell or exchange these NFTs as you like.
(these are sample NFTs created by an AI engine).
What is an NFT? Well, check out our FAQs on this! We are planning to make it easy and friendly for newbies to participate in this ecosphere.
