Star Door aims to bring the public closer to the ISS activities, inform them about the current climate conditions and keep them more active through an engaging virtual experience set in a 3D enviroment modeled after the ISS. Players will participate on missions in teams, explore and interact with the enviroment and complete various tasks.
The 3 stages of Space Door
Remove or add local players to the team
-Check for required play space
Players are asked to get quickly in formations to ensure they have the required play area, without too many obstacles
Players select which mission to play(more missions can be added after the game release)
During the mission:
Tracking the GPS location we can simulate the player movement on the ISS.
Since IRL there are no walls we restrict player on moving within the layout of the ISS by penalising infractions by loss of points or disqualification. Players will still get a warning first before being penalised.
Tasks can be sorted in the following categories: Equipment maintenance, Laboratory analysis, exercise, space walks, data monitoring. Some tasks that would've required outside scientific knowledge will be transformed into a minigame of sorts which will serve an abstraction for the original concept.
Completing tasks may lead to new tasks. For example fixing a clogged pipe could reveal interesting biomaterial that could be analysed in the lab.
This game will feature a character with pre-recorded voice lines which will lead players through the missions ensuring that they don't get too lost, enriching the experience or just providing a bit of humour.
After the mission:
Teams will be scored according to their performance and time in executing the tasks. Scores can be compared online on the team leaderbords for each mission.
-Inform the general public about the ISS programme
-Educate the general public about current climate conditions based on real data
-Encourage people to be more active
-Encourage teamwork between people
