Shoot for the Moon: Vote for the Finalists to Win 2015 Festival Tickets!
In partnership with the Schusterman Philanthropic Network, we selected the final three designs for our Shoot for the Moon game design challenge! These finalists will present their concepts on stage at the Games for Change Festival on April 23 for a shot at a $25,000 cash prize.

Our finalists bring very different concepts and strong experience, with veteran game legend and GDC co-founder Chris Crawford (creator of pioneering games on real-world issues such as Balance of Power and Gossip), and teams from the Ohio State University and independent studio Theorify.

For the first time, we’re opening voting to the public with the People’s Choice Award. We’re offering three passes to next year’s Festival (2015) to three lucky voters! Voting ends April 10.

Rocket Science
Chris Crawford

An unmanned rocket simulator for finding the ideal balance between engine power and fuel consumption, and learning about rocket engines and how their size affects the mission. Play through different aspects of: rocket design, the launch and boost phase, translunar injection, and the landing sequence while preparing for a mission to the Moon. Learn more.

SpaceIL Academy

You have been recruited to train in spaceflight simulations as a cadet at the space station academy. In this animated massively multiplayer adventure with realistic Newtonian physics, fly your customized spaceship on missions to nearby moons and complete STEM homework puzzles to graduate and join the fleet. Learn more and play their demo.
Shoot for the Moon was first announced in February in partnership with Schusterman. It aims to create a space exploration game, which would assist the SpaceIL team in their pursuit to land an unmanned spacecraft on the Moon, and inspire a new generation of scientists and dreamers. The final game will be featured on the SpaceIL website and help crowdsource real data to be used in the mission.

Congratulations to our finalists!
