NASA's Moonbase Alpha game launches today for the PC, available from Steam. Developed by Virtual Heroes' Army Game Studio (America's Army game franchise) and NASA, Moonbase Alpha puts players in the moon boots of a NASA astronaut. The game takes place in 2025, when extended stays on the Moon are possible.
While out on a Rover, the player witnesses a meteorite collision near the moonbase. With the outpost suffering damage from the impact, it is the player's task to head back to the moonbase and make the critical repairs necessary to restore power and oxygen to fellow astronauts in peril. See a preview of what you can expect on this realistic "serious game," available for the PC via Steam today.
