About

Experience the thrill of standing in the boots of a future astronaut on Mars in the world of Starlite.

Participate with your crewmate in a single-player 20 minute mini-adventure that soon turns into more than you bargained for on the Red Planet.

Players navigate a future Mars mission in which they must construct a habitat, craft tools and use advanced robots. The game contains hands-on science inquiry and problem solving in mathematics, physics and engineering.

Starlite: Astronaut Rescue is the first release in the series leading up to alpha testing of the multiplayer online game Starlite: Astronaut Academy in summer 2014.

People who purchase Starlite: Astronaut Rescue will be guaranteed a spot in the Starlite: Astronaut Academy beta test.Features

Starlite: Astronaut Rescue - Developed in Collaboration with NASA reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
First thing, keep in mind it's a 20-min in-development game, released to be a preview and a first test for a future MMO, developed in collaboration with the NASA. Second thing, be advised that, though the NASA is working on making astronomics and space easy and fun to everyone, this is not a mass effect. With these two things in mind, let's talk about this little experience. This is a quite uncommon sight. The purpose is nothing but putting you in the first line of a future exploration of Mars by human personel. This preview introduces what appears to be the future backbones of the game: missions are cut into generic exercises, such as crafting and positioning materials. The exercises of the game are resolved by calculating easy formulas and by orienting antenas in the good way. This little mission can make everyone understand the radio frequiencies and the basis of geogaphical triangulation. It's very didactical and keeps being easy. Furthermore, the equipment, though fictional, has been created with the participation of actual NASA employees, making it close to what could or would be the future equipment for a mission to Mars. I wouldn't tell you to buy it. but I think I have said enough to touch the kind of gamers that would be interested in StarLite and its future, final release. ------------First, keep in mind that this is a 20-minute game, still in development, and a first impression of the future MMO developed in collaboration with NASA. Then, be aware that while NASA is making astronomy and space fun and easy for everyone to understand, this is not a mass effect. Finally, it is 100% anglophone. This little experience has not been common. The idea is none other than putting you on the front line of a future mission of Mars exploration by human personnel. The Mission presents what seems to be the backbone of the future MMO: missions are divided into generic exercises, such as crafting or positioning of materials. These exercises are accomplished by solving easy formulas or by oriting antennas in the right direction. This small mission allows anyone to understand the radio frequencies and the basics of geographic triangulation. It is very didactic and remains simple. Moreover, the equipment, albeit fictitious, was drawn with the participation of current NASA employees, making them close to what could be the staff of a Mars Mission in the future. I will not tell you to buy it. But I believe that what has been said should affect an audience that might be interested in StarLite and its future development.
