Back To Earth

Computer Science - CS498 Virtual Reality
University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign


We base our understanding of space adventure on the movie called Gravity. Namely, the astronaut is working on the space station’s STS-157 mission to repair of Hubble Scope. Out of the blue, Houston control aborts the mission warning that a Russian missile hit a satellite, causing a chain reaction and now there is a storm of debris coming upon them. Soon they lose communication with the Mission Control in Houston. The debris strike the space station and their only chance to return to earth is to reach their space shuttle in no time.


This project is a survival kind of game where the player is an astronaut working on the space station’s STS-157 mission, player must figure out the number puzzle as a means to return to space shuttle in a limited amount of time before the debris strike the space station.
