Steam News announces
the release of NASA Moonbase Alpha
, a freeware game simulating the colonization of the moon. The game was funded by US taxpayers, but is free to all (we're looking at you BBC, with your Doctor Who game). Here's word on the game: "NASA has once again landed on the lunar surface with the goal of colonization, research, and further exploration. Shortly after the return to the Moon, NASA has established a small outpost on the south pole of the moon called Moonbase Alpha. Utilizing solar energy and regolith processing, the moonbase has become self-sufficient and plans for further expansion are underway."
