Plot


Moonbase Alpha is set in the year 2032 and focuses on exploring the day in the life of a lunar-based astronaut. As a meteor strike damages an outpost near the moon's South Pole, the player must take control of a member of the outpost's research team and repair the outpost in order to save the 12 years of research accomplished there. These tasks will include repair vital components of the life support system, solar array and oxygen units, and can be accomplished with a wide variety of tools ranging from robotic repair units to the lunar rover.

Development


Designed as a precursor to Astronaut: Moon, Mars and Beyond, NASA's Massively Multiplayer Online game, Moonbase Alpha is designed to encourage an interest in space exploration in school children. Because the game is meant to be a collaborate effort, the repair mission can be conducted by 6 players with an additional 6 observers. An online leaderboard is included, encouraging players to use teamwork to help repair the station faster and earn a spot on the leaderboard. Designed using the Unreal 3 Engine, Moonbase Alpha features solo or team play, VOIP chat, and an alternate voiceable chat engine
