Alexa X- Mission Mars

Join us on a round trip to Mars by playing "Mission Mars".

We built an interactive and educational audio game as an Alexa Skill. The storyline takes the player on a journey to Mars with one mission: retrieve the rover and bring it back to earth. This game is heavily based on the wonders of space exploration. It's child-friendly and is able to give people who are visually impaired a unique gaming experience.

We made a game for the visually impaired with the technology of the future: voice.

People who are visually impaired may have trouble playing a game that relies solely on controllers and a screen. But, with this audio interactive game, it can make the experience so much better and the user can use their imagination.

It was difficult to figure out how to use a new program and add audio to our game to make it more entertaining. It was also tricky to find an example code to start with, but in the end, it was worth it. We solved this problem by using trial and error, YouTube tutorial videos, and Codecademy, but most importantly, each other.

This project was made by Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program students at Prudential.
