Project Whitecard Studios Inc. announced today the release on Steam of the game Starlite: Astronaut Rescue – developed in collaboration with Nasa – for PC, Mac and Linux.
In Starlite: Astronaut Rescue, players complete an imagined near-future Mars mission in which they must construct a habitat, craft tools and use advanced robots. With the help of a virtual crewmate, a single-player 20 minute mini-adventure soon turns into more than bargained for on the Red Planet.
Rather than the run-of-the-mill point and shoot game, Starlite: Astronaut Rescue contains hands-on science inquiry and problem-solving in mathematics, physics and engineering. The application awards an official Mozilla Open Badge to those who successfully complete the mission.
The Starlite game series gives players a chance to experience the future of space exploration using real Nasa-inspired science and engineering. Players will find the authentic vision of the future to be an awesome experience.
The regular price will be $2.99 but for the first week there will be a 40% launch discount, which ends on 3 February.
An app version of Starlight: Astronaut Rescue is also available for iPad.
