On Console: Psyche is an educational WebGL game built in Unity and based on the NASA Psyche mission that teaches players about its scientific goals. Four minigames allow players to experience the sort of scientific investigations that will be carried out by the actual spacecraft, and a fifth minigame about the spacecraft’s orbit connects them.
