Future space explorers are being invited to play the Star Rangers video game on their PC or Mac computer. Star Rangers is a game that allows game players to experience being an astronaut, realistically, in the near future, about the year 2035.

The game includes information on the solar system, which was provided by NASA, assistance from the University of California Irvine, who in turn brought the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the MacArthur Foundation to back the endeavour to introduce real science content into a video game. The Canada Media Fund also backed the effort to produce the game. An original score was funded by Factor (dot) ca.

Project Whitecard, the company who developed the game, has worked with NASA on other projects developing innovative education platforms.

Star Rangers is being developed with the Steam store community’s involvement. With this approach to development, the creation of Star Rangers will now progress in the direction the community chooses and contributes to, such as emphasizing asteroid-mining, or ramping up buildings for Mars habitats.

Star Rangers is an open ‘sandbox’ of the local solar system incorporating NASA content, and with an emphasis on surviving and thriving on worlds other than Earth. The game has been in private beta on Steam for several weeks already, for vocal members of its fan base. The beta features over 6 maps on Mars, including the Victoria Crater, the Million Mounds area of the Moon, and a best-guess depiction of what it’s like under the ice on Europa.

Those who have participated in the beta will be able to continue enjoying the game as it moves over to Steam Early Access.

The game may be purchased on http://star-rangers.com

Star Rangers will award official Mozilla Digital badges for building and operating custom rocket-sleds, asteroid mining operations, rovers, robots, and more.
