Moonbase Alpha on Steam

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. In Moonbase Alpha, you assume the exciting role of an astronaut working to further human expansion and research. Returning from a research expedition, you witness a meteorite impact that cripples the life support capability of the settlement. Team coordination along with the proper use and allocation of your available resources (player controlled robots, rovers, repair tools, etc.) are key to your overall success.

Key features: Team up with your friends... Utilize the latest in NASA technology... Immerse yourself in an awe-inspiring lunar environment... A unique experience each time.. Power Discovery Zone. Solve one of Pylonman's puzzles to play a great game!
