NetEase Games has announced they are teaming up alongside CCP Games with Massively Multiplayer Online Science, VIB and Ghent University to bring Project Discovery to their space-based mobile game EVE Echoes. After multiple rounds of pretty successful collaboration with EVE Online, it is now the turn of the EVE Echoes player base to have some fun in the name of science.
Project Discovery is a minigame inside EVE Echoes that will instantly unlock whenever the player reaches Tech Level 7. When this requirement is met, docking at any station will allow access to the Project Discovery page via the Events menu. The minigame is fairly simple and involves matching data points individually with each other. If benefiting from the cold hand of science isn’t enough motivation, the game will reward Science Credits that can be exchanged for prizes such as exclusive skins and ships. Anyone who completes the tasks quickly will be awarded additional credits, and the most dedicated of armchair scientists will net unique medals for weekly and all-time participation.
