Mars: Curiosity Rover is available only on the Oculus Store for the Rift for now but we are working on making it available on the Gear VR and Oculus Go as well. Make sure to join our Facebook Group to be the first to know when it’s available.


This experience will take you to Mars to learn about the Curiosity Rover. The main content of the app is organized around a full documentary that will tell you more about the rover’s mission and how it landed on Mars on August 2012. It also includes:

  • A mini game to let you play Basketball on Mars to explore how different the martian Gravity is compared to Earth
  • A quiz to verify how knowledgeable you are regarding Curiosity
  • A “Learn” section that will let you select the parts of the Rover you would like to learn about.

The VR documentary

The VR documentary in Mars: Curiosity Rover is separated in 6 different chapters. It will teach you how NASA managed to launch and land the Curiosity rover on Mars and will give you more details about its mission on Mars as well as some of its findings.

We made this documentary social to give you the opportunity to invite your VR friends and experience this documentary with them.

Each chapter of the documentary is accompanied with a voice over to guide you through the documentary.

This experience will teach you a lot about the Gale Crater and why the Curiosity Rover is spending a lot of his energy analyzing this place.
