Terra Orbita is a project for the HEIM Technical museum in Hengelo (OV), in The Netherlands, we were tasked with informing children aged 6 to 16 of both genders, of different detection methods. The game will be played on a touchscreen, where children can log in and then play the game, have a good time and also learn something in the process.
Here we thought of a space orbit cleaner, where the player has to fly around the orbit of Earth to clean it of flying debris and meteoroids.
- Switch between radar and infrared
- Infrared to see drillable meteoroids
- Radar to see metal debris
- Clean earth’s orbit
- Avoid incoming meteorites
- Do all the missions to upgrade your ship to the max.
- Get as many points as possible to beat your friends highscores
My tasks were to lead the team in the right direction, make the final choices of wether to implement stuff or leave it out, because of our limited timespan. I also did the programming of the detection methods and implementation of the game to the backend of the museum.
