“We have created the game MARSEOPOLIS, where the user can create a human-like person of various professions who will then travel to space. After each stage, the user receives information about space and learns interesting facts about it. The main goal of the project was to present as well as possible the important aspects that arise when scientists or other professions fly into space. Within the scope of the project, we wanted to present the importance of mental health and its impact on a person” – Natia Zaridze, BTU student.
