If you've ever wanted to explore space and didn't have the $20 million to make the trip yourself, we've got some good news. Moonbase Alpha, a NASA-sponsored educational "exploration game" developed by The Army Game Studio and Virtual Heroes, is now available on Steam for the low, low price of free.

Using latest in NASA technology in multiple scenarios in gameplay for up to six players, Moonbase Alpha hopes to educate players while also proving, once and for all, that the moon is not made of cheese.

Here's a trailer:

Steam store entry - http://store.steampowered.com/app/39000/

I'm enjoying it so far, though it's short on content (one mission, if I'm not mistaken). But, if I recall correctly, Moonbase Alpha is a "prologue" of sorts to Astronaut: Moon, Mars and Beyond (a NASA MMO that is still in development).

I played it with Doku before you posted. It's not bad, but you can tell it's not polished. Not a lot of content, either. Fairly simple game.

At some point they will reach the stage where you find alienish weapons and fight hordes of huge alien ants, like every other major space game.

This is pretty much a simulation game right?

Nah. It's more a NASA-themed arcade game. It does have elements of realism, but it's so small that I don't think they count.
