The company worked with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and NASA, with 8 million square kilometers of satellite imagery of Mars. There's even hand-sculpted rocks, with 1 million of them, as well as the design of the rover, habitat, and space suit designs coming from NASA.

Even the sound of the rover is real, with sound being recorded by NASA driving the Mars rovers around in real life, at the Johnson Space Center.
