philosophy

Look Around. About 60 miles up, and you will enter an unending, exotic wilderness that few people will ever visit. Space. A few thousand miles down, and you will find an unexplored superheated sphere of metal as hot as the surface of the Sun. The Earth’s core.

From pictures snapped on the surface of other worlds, to glimpses of the very molecules that form our visible universe, we live in an age where scientific discovery is unlocking the world for us in incredible ways.

At Project Aurora Games, we think differently about STEM. Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are exciting windows to the world, and we think it's time learning about them was as exciting as the content itself.

Our team has decades of experience in game design and science outreach, with members that have worked on everything from exploring alien worlds to releasing AAA, casual, and portable games.

As a gaming company, we are designing with the philosophy that STEM itself is the greatest inspiration we could find. With compelling stories and spectacular, realistic experiences, we are bringing space and STEM to you as literally as we can with today's technology.
