"What if the games you play could teach you the science of the universe?" astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson asks during a video for Space Odyssey, a video game seeking funding for production on Kickstarter.
The host of StarTalk and director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City's American Museum of Natural History partnered with a team made up of TV and movie producers, the visual development lead on games such as God of War 3 and the writer of comic books such as Swamp Thing and Wolverine. They are seeking $314,159 as part of an all-or-nothing goal. Those funds will be used to develop a prototype that will be shown to potential investors. The campaign has raised $51,145 as of Friday morning.
