Sunday night as I was working on the computer, I was debating on whether or not to open an extra tab to NASA’s site for coverage on their latest rover mission to Mars. I ended up opening an extra tab and switching back and forth on the coverage of the Curiosity’s landing on the Red Planet. After watching the Curiosity coverage, it made me wonder how many “space” type games there might be on the Wii that I had missed. So, that’s how this post was inspired.
Space Camp was released for the Wii on May 26, 2009 and I believe it released with a MSRP of just $29.99. The game was developed by 7 Studios (now closed) and published by Activision, and it received an ESRB rating of “Everyone” with “Mild Fantasy Violence” listed as content for gamers and parents to be aware of.
The Curiosity Mars rover took 253 days (about 6,072 hours) to reach Mars. How many hours have U.S. Wii owners reported training for lunar journeys with Space Camp? Brew yourself some coffee, and let’s take a look!
Space Camp has approximately 12,860 Wii owners that have reported game-play data through the Nintendo Channel, with days possibly reported. The game’s average play-time per day/session is 1 Hour 22 Minutes, and as the image above shows the game has averaged just over 6 Hours “Per person” that has reported data.
