The intended purpose of Neno’s Asteroid Adventure is to Inform the public about the NASA Psyche mission through a fun and inspiring web-based game that’s engaging and accessible to children ages ten years of age and up. The goal of the game is that the player explores the world, collects all asteroids, finds the portal with the hidden spaceship to win the game. The inspiration came from the NASA Psyche mission that, for first time ever, revolves around exploring an asteroid likely made largely from metal. The game exposes users to this amazing endeavor.  The stakeholders are players ten years of age and up and the NASA Psyche mission. The technologies used are Java programing language, Gimp as a software image editing tool for creating the path and world of the game, GitHub, and Eclipse IDE.
