Moonbase Alpha is a very cool game where you become an astronaut on the surface of the Moon. Check the game out on Steam by clicking here. It is 100% free-to-play and I would recommend it to any fans of space travel.
Just to clarify, this is not a science fiction game. This is a game actually trying to be realistic simulation of being an astronaut on the Moon. It was developed in partnership with NASA and, to be honest, this could even be a pretty good learning tool.
This isn’t a long achievement-based game. The main goal is to restore oxygen for two astronauts that found themselves in a little bit of a pickle. There are two game modes. In Competetive Mode, you must compete against other players (or even just against yourself) to be the first one to restore all of the oxygen within 25 minutes. In Freeplay Mode, it is impossible to fail and you can take as much time as you need to restore all of the oxygen for the astronauts. This mode is good for beginners.
After restoring the oxygen, you can continue exploring that part of the moon. You can enter all of the bases, ride around on the rover, ect. There is also a pretty cool function that you can set up beacons. They don’t give you anything, but they can look pretty cool. Probably the most popular function is the text-to-speech engine which you can optionally turn on in the settings.
Overall, this is a pretty cool game. The only real downsides are that it is hard to join a game with someone else, because not many people play this game and that there aren’t any filters, so when I joined a game for the first time and asked some question in the chat, some guy was just spamming curses at me. But I doubt this happens very often.
If you are on Steam and you would be interested in playing this game, I would be very excited to play with you. Just contact me in any way and I can create us a server. BTW, please don’t forget to leave some questions as comments below this post or as e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be doing a Q&A soon and every single question that will be submitted will receive an answer. Also, please fill in my survey by clicking here. It will only take you a few minutes. But for now have a Terrific Thursday and See Thee Soon!
