NASA has partnered with social gaming platform Gamee for a second time to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Voyager mission.
The new game has players navigating the Voyager spacecraft through asteroids and meteor showers while flying by planets. Players will also be given facts about each planet, making the game educational as well as entertaining.
This is the second partnership between NASA and Gamee following its Mars Rover game last year. That title saw over 50 million plays from 16 million unique players across the app and browser platforms.
Games in space
"We are excited about space and space missions and we're delighted to be able to share our passion by creating this game," said Bozena Rezab, CEO of Gamee.
"It is also one of the most engaging ways to learn about achievements of Mars Rover and Voyager projects."
Gamee scored a $2.15 million funding round in March 2017 to continue growing its business and developing new games. Part of that growth is into chatbot apps, something Rezab has written about for us previously.
