Ideas for Space Game Concepts from Space Apps Challenges

Looking for ideas to develop a game related to space, NASA research or STEM? Check out the challenges created for the International Space Apps Challenge! Though few of the challenge ask to have a game created about them, many have concepts and resources that could be turned into great game ideas. Also, all projects created in response to challenges are linked to the challenge pages and are open source.

All challenges by year: 2012, 2013, 2014

These challenges were specifically written to have games developed from them:

These challenges have good ideas and resources for developing a game from (not an all-inclusive list and in no particular order; more available in the full challenge sets arranged by year):

 If you find the challenges interesting, consider joining thousands of participants around the world for the 2015 Space Apps Challenge! The event is usually held over a weekend in April.

Winners of 2014 Kennedy Space Center Space Apps Challenges!

We had 95 great projects for the three challenges that Kennedy Space Center (KSC) developed for the 2014 International Space Apps Challenge. We appreciate all the time and effort that each of the participants put into developing their projects and then sharing them with us.

The KSC challenge participants came from 31 countries (every continent except Antarctica) and 80% of the participants were outside the USA. More than half of the KSC challenge projects developed videos!

Our challenge developers each assembled a panel with fellow subject matter experts and evaluated all projects that submitted videos to their project. We are proud to announce the winners for each challenge.

Please be sure to congratulate the winning teams; they will be invited to Kennedy Space Center for a future launch viewing opportunity. Thought there is no prize associated with honorable mention, the judges wanted to acknowledge additional outstanding projects.
