A Free Game for Exploring International Space Station – Spacewalk


Spacewalk is a networked interactive experience about taking a space walk outside of the International Space Station. This multiplayer game lets players collectively take on the role of astronauts navigating and exploring the structure of the space station. Spacewalk is an interactive experiment in alternative control schemes, free-form play, virtual embodiment, and metagame communication.

Spacewalk was designed and developed over the course of five days as an assignment for USC’s Interactive Media MFA program. Although it connects to other players across the internet, it is intended to be played with people in the same physical space. It is now compatible with the Oculus Rift.

Spacewalk v0.63 (May 5, 2013) is available for free through the links on its page.
