Turn-based game with drones mining asteroids in the asteroid belt. Using real data of NASA's most famous asteroids and not so real drones.

This project is solving the Create Your Own Asteroid Mission challenge.


Asteroid Tycoon is a turn-based game in which the player guides a group of drones in a quest for mining and gathering resources through the asteroid belt. The purpose of this game is to educate players about real asteroids and to give an idea of how difficult can this be and how much could it benefit us, even though the game mechanics may differ from reality subjectively. Using data from the most studied asteroids and giving the current technology we envision what would this mission require and what we could have available in a not so distant future. Asteroids will be simulated in a 2D space and would try to have the most realistic data given the short time of this event.
