Play as an aspiring astronaut in Astronaut: Moon, Mars and Beyond (AMMB), the official NASA MMO game. You will embark on an adventure into space, Mars, the asteroid belt, and the outer planets set in the year 2035. You will uncover secrets about a threat to civilization as we know it and build you and your team a high-tech inventory of space gear including a home base, somewhere out there.
Astronaut: Moon, Mars And Beyond is an adventure game focused on mankind’s future missions into the outer reaches of the solar system: this time to stay. Astronaut: Moon, Mars And Beyond is a follow-up to Moonbase: Alpha (released in July 2010) which was the proof-of-concept for developing commercial quality videogames using NASA content. Astronaut Academy (the first chapter of the AMMB series) is a recreation of the solar system featuring simulated mission-based space exploration, career advancement, and awareness of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The game will be designed to be fun, engaging, and scientifically accurate, enabling career exploration and STEM learning. The target audience will be the 5-24 age and the gaming and science enthusiast markets. It will have an open architecture to support expandability and linkages to multiple technologies and media. The game will be built using the Unreal Engine 3 with initial support for the iOS and Windows PC platforms.
The beta test for Astronaut Academy is planned for December 2012 and the Astronaut Academy Handbook (an overview of the science and technology of the game’s setting) is also in development for release on iOS soon.
We’ve started a Kickstarter page to help fund the beta. For more information visit http://kck.st/qinz75
Astronaut: Moon, Mars and Beyond and Astronaut Academy are being developed in accordance with a “Space Act Agreement” with NASA Learning Technologies by Project Whitecard, WisdomTools, and the Virtual Heroes Division of Applied Research Associates. NASA is not spending money directly on the project and we are also receiving private funding.
