Mission to a Metal World

Psyche is both the name of an asteroid and the name of a NASA space mission to visit that asteroid, led by ASU. My capstone team, Trajectory, was tasked to create an interactive app that will engage the user in exploring the mission. PsycheSwerve is an exciting app where the player is set off on a mission to reach Psyche. The game starts with a rocket launch where the player will dodge obstacles and gather collectables to help with their journey. Coins collected can be used to upgrade ship parts or upgrade the ship entirely. The objective of the game is to reach Psyche before the year 2026. As part of another project regarding Psyche, my partner Christina and I created a campaign called PSYCHEsound that targets girls who are interested in STEM education through ASMR. These videos consist of items and facts that relate back to the Psyche mission.
