As a part of the outreach and education phase for the Psyche mission this sponsored project was created as a path to increase education and interest in the mission to (16) Psyche. The main focus of the game is to inspire others to become involved in this and other missions and encourage interest in both the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields as well as space exploration through interesting and engaging gameplay.
