How To Play

The Personal Robots Group at the MIT Media Lab is working to develop social robots that can learn to assist people by observing natural human interaction.  Mars Escape is a two-player game designed to gather data about human teamwork, social interaction and communication.  Help us out by playing the game, either as a human or a robot!


Algorithmic analysis of the data collected through these games will enable us to develop natural autonomous behaviors for our robot Nexi.  We will then recreate the game environment in real life and demo our findings at the Boston Museum of Science!


The game takes about 10 minutes to play, you will be randomly paired with another player online. Players must be 18 and over. 


Thank you for your participation!

Elements of Mars Escape are based on "The Restaurant Game" project.
