Objective Europa video game

I recently saw that this project is basicly dead, and I think that we should interest more people in it. It could be done by making a video game. It should give us some money for the mission, too.
If someone would like the idea, please let me know about it, and then I will start writing GDD for it.

Sounds like an interesting idea. But I guess its not easy to make a game. What goes into the GDD. Time and specs?

Hi,
I also think that this sounds like an interesting, but I don't think it is a good starting point to develop a game to raise some money for OE. What OE currently needs are people who are interested to do some research. This is the main idea behind OE (crowd researching). What kind of game do you have in mind? Should it be related to OE or do you want to mention OE in the credits?
When you are looking for help, want to make an open source game and I like the idea, I'm willing to help you programming the game.

@vonB: GDD (Game Design Document) Is especially for the specs [1].

I thought of making a RPG/Simulation game about OE. Player is an astronaut on a first mission to Europa, and he/she builds the outpost, repairs things, maybe conducts research on Europa's life?

That sounds like a good idea. Do you want to make it an open source game? Which plattforms do you want to support?

No, I'd like to sell it on Steam (all the money would go for the mission), in Unity Standalone build for Mac, PC and Linux.

Hey there. No doubt we need to revive the site and project. Personally, I don't think it's possible any near term or without payment to create a game anyone would pay for. But I could be mistaken. However, I like the idea to make it somehow open so people can add modules,systems design and missions. Either it should be free simply creating awareness or the income should go to someone who will keep the site active daily or weekly. What do you think about this?

Well, I think that our priority is to revive the project, so yes, you're right. It should be free.
