Informace o hře

Experience the thrill of standing in the boots of a future astronaut on Mars in the world of Starlite.

Participate with your crewmate in a single-player 20 minute mini-adventure that soon turns into more than you bargained for on the Red Planet.

Players navigate a future Mars mission in which they must construct a habitat, craft tools and use advanced robots. The game contains hands-on science inquiry and problem solving in mathematics, physics and engineering.

Starlite: Astronaut Rescue is the first release in the series leading up to alpha testing of the multiplayer online game Starlite: Astronaut Academy in summer 2014.

People who purchase Starlite: Astronaut Rescue will be guaranteed a spot in the Starlite: Astronaut Academy beta test.

Features

  • Unity Terrain Mars Environment and Shadows
  • Futuristic "MNRV" advanced rover setting
  • Advanced "biosuit" style space suits by M.I.T.
  • Professional Voice Acting
  • Integrated Intelligent Science Crafting Engine
  • Realistic Physics for Mars Gravity
  • Realistic Locomotion
  • Advanced Robotic Rover Navigation
  • Original Story and Dialog

The application awards an official Mozilla Open Badge to those who successfully complete the mission.

Well its been a long time since I last playedd this game, actually went back and watched the blind play I recorded on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_He_ZAw-IA&feature=gp-n-y&google_comment_id=z13wjd4yqnecj5l4a04cjr14csqxs5daw14.

I've not played it since that recording mostly because I hadn't seen any updates to it and even now going through and looking it seems like the game got canned because there are poeple who will write negative review about something if you don't end up getting to kill things because its 'not a game' in those cases.

I for one enjoyed the game when it came out, and though math isn't my strongest skill didn't find it all that difficult to figure out the formula it gave you, I mean the calculator was right there and all it was was a division problem, not like we were trying to calculate the anti-sine cosine of a quadratic rectangular polygon or something. It felt like the game was ment for educational purposes and maybe be used in the class-room as a 'fun' way to teach kids maths and science. I could see that being the case if they added a few more scenarios/missions around that theme.

This program presents itself as a game, and to be honest, it fits the definition, but it's definately not something you'd expect to see on Steam. It isn't terrible per se, but it can do with a LOT of improvement.

For starters, the player moves around like a steady-cam; Everything is smoothed out, from the movement over hills down to the motion of the mouse. It feels unnatural to the point it seems you're playing a drone of sorts.

Then there is the geometery; Terrain smoothing has been around for about a decade now, and it could have been used to some extent and look better than it does right now. Even with graphics set to the max I can see the edges a mile away. It is sloppy and it shouldn't have to be that way. And this doesn't go for just the terrain. The objects, entities and vehicles themselves look bad because of this. It is impossible to make a curved geometery that works on all hardware, but there are shaders and filters and all sorts of tricks that are very effective on that front.

Texture quality; Well, there is some, just not a whole lot. This is again one of those points that would have been acceptable a decade ago. With an option 'Beautiful' I expect to see high resolution textures.

This would all be acceptable in a simulator, which I suppose this falls under, if the actual simulation demanded high detail or amount of calculations that would justify sacrificing graphical fidelity. And that is probably what upsets me the most; It looks and feels quickly assembled in a Unity editor with little to no attention to detail or features.

It looks and feels like a demo, which, at the time I bought it (a few years ago) was a bit more expensive than the 5 bucks (if not less) that's advertised these days.

It does a good job as an educational tool, however, for both children who want to be astronauts and game developers alike (the latter probably isn't a complement though). It has some nice lessons in frequencies and stuff, but that's about the only thing it has going for it. Wel...it has the NASA logo up front, and it pained me to see the Gates Foundation in there as well, especially since it has the tendancy to crash when ALT+TABbing, but that may just be me.

All in all I cannot recommend this for what it is. I love the idea, but there is no game here. What little simulation it has is completely on rails and there is no way to mess up or discover something that deviates from the main story, which plot also escapes me...

I hope some developers got a lot of experience out of this, and I'm not sure about it's current price, but if you see this for anything over 50 cents, just leave it be.

One final sidenote, this is an alpha test for Starlite: Astronaut Academy, to be released in 2014. That was a year ago. It has been sold (and still is) as seperate full-release title (There is no Steam Early Access disclaimer on the store page). These 2 things don't bother me as much as the fact that over the years there have been no updates, improvements or anything that indicates this being a work in progress or part of a bigger project which is still in progress (although I'm pretty sure that one's dead as well).

A 20-minute look into the bleak future of United States space exploration if we continue cutting NASA's budget and failing to educate our citizens in math and science compared to other countries. It's a little-known fact that, during the development of Starlite: Astronaut Rescue, highly intelligent individuals who once helped put man on the moon were forced to simulate having no scientific education. The result is a game with physics that are all wrong and only 20 minutes of plodding, unrealistic content—all they could manage to create under these conditions before giving up. A real eye-opener, and a future none of us want to live in.

It looks good in the video and the notes seem intriguing, but for a a game that you play once, this should be free. It's an interesting educational tool that should be flushed out much more fully. The really is one task - determine the wavelength of a radio signal. The description makes it sound like there are more of these types of puzzles, but there aren't.

Even the surrounding terrain, which is supposed to be from Curiosity, is very low-res and could easily be improved upon.

All told, this looks like a 3D game kit's demo rather than a true game - even educational.
