A new game brings play and education together. Mars 2030, a game from FMG Labs, puts players in an environment that has long captivated scientists. You get to explore the Red Planet in its full glory—not just a general interpretation of it.

Mars 2030, which was built with the participation of NASA, used actual data to recreate what some think could be the human population’s next home. Building off NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE satellite data, players have 40 square kilometers of terrain to explore.

As a scientist in space, players will get to stay at a camp modeled after NASA’s Langley’s Evolvable Mars Campaign. While on Mars, the player collects samples and studies them using tools in the in-game laboratory. Downloads are now available through Steam for $14.99. While it’s only available for the Oculus and HTC Vive for now, a Playstation VR iteration is coming soon.
